    the political structure of israel is such that it became almost impossible to obtain the least toward peace. One has very few parties that are politically structured: likud, Kadima, labour etc. Then come parties of non political nature like Israel Beitenu (russian immigrants), various rabbinical obediance parties such as Shas (Sefaradic and north african religious party), other religious parties of different religious tendencies. With such a composition and given that kdima, the russians and the religious are against the constitution of a palestinian state, it becomes almost impossible to obtain, at the present Knesset composition and present coalition, an agreement for an acceptable peace program. the only way out is, perhaps, for BIBI to resign and call for new elections. it seems as if people are tired of war and incertainity, they perhaps vote for peace.
