    into the good night. He will do his usual brinksmanship to ensure that Israel has the strongest hand possible. But with te role that Egypt is playing, I think that hand is not what it used to be. This is the sad thing from an Israeli perspective and what many people have tried to warn them over the years. Intransigence has weakened the Israeli position, not strengthened it.

      from any other perspective. Someday, maybe, we'll even break their stranglehold on our foreign policy.

      If we can help Libyans or want to assist the Syrians, what makes the Palestinians so different? They too are living under oppression....they cant' even resist peacefully...The Israeli government is no better than Assad in that regard.

      Each people has a right to thrive and to self-determination, not the least, the Palestinians.
