Politics is taking Israel to its dooms day. It needs no Ze'ev Schiff to tell us. That was obvious since Rabin. Ze'ev Schiff sums it up: "the divions are not adequately trained because of the cuts to the defense budget and it is not acceptable in view of the situation Israel is in" Olmert reflected the sorry picture when he said: He 'will make it fun to visit and live in Israel' The truth is since Rabin, Israel forget itself and lost its way and was not sure of itself wether she is Left or Right. Bibi took Israel to the Left when he is from the Right by his total interest to ballance the books, and being a Theachariate. Sharon made an alliance with Peres the sand castle builder of the Left. This salad party Kadima brings it all to the open. Every Tom, Dick and Herry in Israel gives his own private precription. Every country in the World lent its empty hand from Oslo to Geneave. Israel lost its way. Will it find it ? Akram Zekaria.
