    What is needed to get the israeli public to start speaking up against its leaders? To start protesting in the streets, to get a peace movement going? That is the most disturbing factor at the moment, that hardly a soul in Israel questions its govt intransigence and the abuse of the legitimate rights of the Pals. When a missile hits Tel Aviv or other cities are hit too with more destructive missiles, are they going to start speaking up then? Is that going to be their wake up call to the fact that there very beloved Bibi, Leibermann,Ayalon, Barak and Co are putting their long term into serious trouble? When will the selfish Israeli people understand that Syria, Hezbollah, Iran, Jordan, Eygpt, Hamas,Saudi Arabia will only get stronger and stronger and stronger til the day they inflict a heavy and brutal blow onto Israel. Technology is different today.This summer or next, but its inevitable.

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
