    When 9/11 occured,the world cried out to hear the voices of condemnation from ordinary peace loving Muslims.So where are these voices in OUR population to speak out against the racist intentions of Leiberman? At present the tail wags the dog.He and other minorities,though becoming increasingly sizeable,are controlling Netanhayu,the Knesset,the country,and its image to the rest of the world.Yet who is prepared to speak out against him,except for other Jewish people in other countries,who are embarrassed,worried and who are increasingly persecuted by their countrymen,who assume that Jews everywhere automatically agree with anything israel says or does.THEY DO NOT! and much of Israeli's population do not. Yesterday someone sent me a video recounting our Knesset member from Ethiopia ,and the perilous journey he made from his former country to be here in Israel.THIS sort of person is what our tiny country was meant to accomodate.NOT guys who come from a perfectly secure lifestyle in the USA and elsewhere,change their name,grow their hair,wear a kippa and say that G-d gave them the right to 'settle' in the West Bank,which is NOT part of Israel.The settlements pose the biggest threat to the continuing existence of Israel,turn everyone against us,and have become the complete antithesis of what their founders in the knesset expected them to do,defend our country by providing facts on the ground after 67. Times and circumstances have changed,the world has moved on.We can no longer 'rule' the ordinary palestinian by brute force and military strength.Any misdemeanor Israel carryies out is reported around the globe in seconds,before we can begin to mitigate our decisions and our mistakes.ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.It is time to have another PRO PEACE coalition.,and to not use the lame justifications trotted out by brainwashed onesiders.If we even condemn textbooks which are prepared to give both sides of the argument for Arab Israeli problems,then each side will continue to not see that there IS a problem.It will continue to be us versus the enemy.ON BOTH SIDES
