The left in Israel had its chance to be in a coalition with Netanyahu. Trouble is can a true liberal be loyal to his country. As I grew up in the 50's and 60's a a true liberal affiliated themselves with all minority causes the under privileged because they were not necessarily patriotic and fely a need to help. Their tendencies were socialistic never really close to being centrist in thought or action.

So BiBi can say, I made an effort to work it out with the liberals but I got rebuked. It is difficult to forgive or work with people who feel everybody no matter what they do like being liars and murders can be reformed and be trusted. Israel is not totally innocent in their actions but she should not be the scapegoat for all the ills that keep Peace from being a reality in the Middle East for it takes two to tango.
