First of all, ministers within the cabinet, must toe the govts (Bibi) line, or reveal weaknesses to Israel's enemies. This is an age old problem within Israel. The Pals see the protest movment, the irresponsiciloity oft the Chardi who like to throw stones at the police,
the potential 5th column of Israeli Arabs, and the opposition which is goodat throwing darts..but has no viable solutions. (See Livni and Olmert), Haaretz). 500m Arabs are united..their goal, a Muslim Pals..Western and Eastern, one way or another, piece by peace. Years ago, a supv told me, you will be judged by your deeds and not words. The Arabs, if judged by deeds, fail, with a big "F". Nothing they have done since 48 shows they want to live in peace with the Jews. They dont want Jews, Judenrein is their goal. (hear Hamas/Hez/IslamicJihad and Iran).
From this perspective, negotiating is simple. Israel cannot control 3m Arabs..nor take in 5m more, not even one. UN242 cannot be abrogated...secure borders agreed to by the parties. Like the Calif legislature, the Israelis and Arabs (Pals) are deadlocked...no progress in 20 years.We, in Calif have resorted to gimmicks while the roads go unpaved and schools deteriorate. Its possible there is no solution to the problems in the M.E.
and Israel will be a garrison state for decades. I like the Allon Plan, allowing autonomyt to the territories with Israeli security on the borders.
Jerusalem's East can be internationalized..with rule by both sides over the holy sites..The Wall by Israel, the Mounht, by the Pals., etc. Bibi may be overly pessimistic,
but he sees events around him
falling apart. The Arab Spring,
may become the Hurricane summer, and we know what that means. The Arabs are probing, looking for weak spots.
