    That was in the past. The redeployment from Sinai. The Peace Treaties with Egypt & Jordan. However, that is the past. Far too long ago. Before Global Jihad and Iran. Never mind Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel has come of age. Israel will only make concessions if and when security issues are correctly addressed. Then we have the far right. Who are a driving force in the coalition. These fellows will not budge an inch. One can be sure of one major point. Iran's regime must be shocked that Israel has taken the Great Satan to task. They may be delighted, then they must also be terrified of this new right wing government that could well plunge the Regime into the depths of the Persian Gulf. For, the Global Jihad respect only tough and resolute governments, they tend to attack only the weak and handicapped. Get my drift..? Good day.
