  •  I am not Jewish, but I agree that Israel (0+ / 0-)

    is important.  But it seems to me that people like Netanyahu are behaving as if the existence and success of Israel is much LESS important than their near-term political success.  This is the only way I can understand their insistence on scoring cheap domestic political points by continuing to build settlements, gradually making conditions in the West Bank and Gaza worse, and creating a situation on the ground that can never result in a stable Palestinian State.

    The inevitable and unavoidable end result of what has been happening over the last few years is either an intractable and never-ending war, or a one-state solution that leaves Israel either as NOT a democracy, or NOT a Jewish state.
