Some days ago in Ha'aretz the columnist Yoel Marcus gave a great summary of the actual situation in Israel:
"we can argue about the fact if Ariel Sharon has a program,or even just has a clue to achieve peace and security in Israel.
But one thing is for sure: We find ourselves on the road to nowhere, or as the Americans say "we are deep in the ****".
Without the support of the US we will stay in it."
It seems that public opinion is getting tired of the military and unilateral position of Sharon, as it doesn't seem to be effective to achieve a better and more peacefull future for Israel.
this is the best news i heard from Israel in months.
