    "Obama is likely to be the last president to have the option of dealing with the two-state solution. If both sides may become locked in conflict for another generation, it will pose significant challenges to American interests." in "Can Obama Broker Middle East Peace?" www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1873859,00.html "In the middle east, there's no room for such experiments." (Tom) What could have been more of an experiment by our leaders, putting Jewish lives more at risk, than to allow a lunatic rabbi, called Moshe Levinger, to found the settler movement, at the Park Hotel, Hebron, March 1968? As if the foreign stateless population we had taken control of, unwittingly and without thinking much about the morrow, in June '67, had consented to stay forever our silent and obedient subjects. "No normal society can flourish in the oppressive conditions generated by the settlement enterprise. The endless war that the settlers are trying to impose on us, which they need like fire needs oxygen, is endangering our future and fanning the flames of a new wave of hatred against Jews in the Diaspora." Prof. Zeev Sternhell, in "Post-Zionist settlement", Haaretz, June 20, 2003. "An Israeli historian and one of the world's leading experts on Fascism, former head of the Political Science department, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Was awarded the Israel Prize for Political Science in 2008." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeev_Sternhell
