A Clueless Prime Minister
Prime Minister Ehud Barak cannot decide if he wants to unify
Israel or divide it. It was no more than sixteen months ago,
right after he was elected, that he said that he would be

Israelis but members of a Palestinian mob who dragged the
young man out, beat and stabbed him. And that the infuriated
Israeli policeman with a baton in the background was shouting
not at the bloodied youth but at the Palestinians who
brutally attacked him.
