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.

First Good News Of 2017

Netanyahu may finally get his comeuppance.  Bibi has overseen a radical rightward lurch in Israeli politics that has forced Likud to ally with hyper-nationalists like Avigdor Lieberman and Naftali Bennett.  This has led to a de facto abandonment of the two-state solution and an increasing stance that the US should do whatever Israel wants.

It's unsustainable, and the sooner he's gone, the sooner Israel can find a leader that can provide a blueprint for peace.
