    When we tried to discuss peace for the return of the territories after the 1967 war what did we get . The three no's of Khartoum. No recognition, no peace and no negotiations. When Arafat could of got 95 % of his demands satisfied at Camp David he walked away from the deal and unleashed the suicide bombers who killed and maimed thousands of innocent Israelis. When we pulled out of Gaza in 2005 and destroyed the settlements what did we get in return, thousands of rockets and mortars fired into our cities and towns. The only thing that would satisfy your Jew hatred, ignorance and blood lust would be if we just marched quietly into the cattle cars and vanished up the chimneys again. Not this time Melissa.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
