    Ya'lon likes to intimidate people of the left. He is using the same rethoric as the so-called ''national camp'' before Rabin's assasination. He wants to create a civil war atmosphere by describing people of the left as irresponsible, stupid, naive and so on. The problem however is that according to Ya'alon, even Ben Gurion or Herzl are cancers. Ben Gurion was the first one to say that Israel had to withdraw from all of the Occupied territories. In altneuland, Herzl describes a tolerant Jewish society living peacefuly with the Arabs. According to Ya'alon, Israel should be an Empire. I'm sure that if Herzl were still alive, he'd be disgusted to see that government with people like Lieberman or Ya'alon refusing peace because of it's addiction to the land.
