Police fear that disciples of the rabbi, convicted of bribery, might lash out.04:00 27.11.15 | 0 comments
In order to achieve an peace agreement, Israel would need to dismantle most of the settlements. The settlers are the most powerful pressure group in Israel and have tremendous support within the largest political party in Israel. They have made sure that both their backers and even those who oppose them are very aware that a massive or even moderate dismantling of settlement is something they, the settlers, will never allow. It's logistically and politically impossible. Sharon knows it very well and that's why he's playing his usual games with the us administration. By the time 8,000 settlers are evacuated, or maybe not, everybody will be totally exhausted, politically and mentally, Bush will be a lame duck president, and things will go back to "normal", meaning no progress toward peace, more terror and as usual, the settlers running the foreign and defense policy of Israel. Then will come the next episode of charades and on and on.
