    Our political scene/landscape is, as Mr. Eldar knows better than most of us, a mess. There is no opposition. Avoda is in ruins. Livni is Likud dressed as center-liberal(?). But come september and the current order will be challenged by those "two legs" - there will be more demonstrations for social change (and Netanyahu knows that he can´t ignore the demonstrators), and there will be a diplomatic challenge from the other leg. I actually do foresee change and a new dynamic, but Yachimovic is not a good leader for Israel. We need a new face and force. But where to find him/her? I do not know.
