    They don't now; I accept that. But if he were to ever become PM, I submit that soysauce would have a much stronger argument for his case. And given the strength of the right in the recent elections, I submit that there are a lot of people in Israel who want to create an apartheid state.

      That's unquestionable.

      But they are under constant rocket fire, so what would anyone expect?

      The intifadas have knocked off the Israel left and the people their recognize that the international left loathes the Jewish state.

      So, they have said, "Sayonara."

      People generally do not join in a movement that is in opposition to themselves.

      It just does not work that way.

        Hamas rocket fire during the recent truce went from 180 per month to 3 per month. It's too bad Israel's government didn't reciprocate. And you can't paint with a broad brush -- let people speak for themselves. I admire Israel. That may shock some people, but I do. What I don't admire is the way that the government maltreats the Palestinian people.
