No doubt, Israel is in a corner, with the isolation and the international condemnation of various action it chose.In fairness to Israel, it is in a tough postion, giving up something they have taken, and realizing that the international community will not accept Jerusalem as it capitol.Why have this taken so long, America couldn't continue to turn a blind eye on Isrel's bad deeds, and of course the US will continue to provide the billions. Israel polical scheme is complex and at best weak, coalition after coalition and too many elections in the last several years, the perfect climate for weak and unstable government, not to mention all the corruption charges.How could a government like this be comitted to peace, they have called for a partner in the PLO, the problem is they are both weak.Let's now hope that Israel words are now action, rather than another appeasement for the international.Hope both people can live in peace. Comments by that Rabbi, should have been condemn by Bibi right way, the US made a mild condemnation.These comments makes Hamas look like saints, and deplores the true racist ways in the Israeli society. Hamas and the settlers and some of those right wingers Israel are an obstacle to peace. Hopefully Jews and Plaestinians will be in peace.
