Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Bibi got a wake-up call:

Nothing could be better for any eventual two-state solution for the Israel and Palestine than getting rid of Netanyahu.  Simply put, he's not going to agree with any plan that cedes any sovereignty to the Palestinians.  This result... well, I'm not sure whether than makes it more or less likely that a deal could be made.  But it certainly makes it more likely that whatever current government that comes out of this election won't last long.
