Israeli Prime Ministers

Reader comment on item: Israel's Wayward Prime Ministers

Submitted by Lloyd Lionel Klein (United States), Jun 29, 2004 at 16:32

Your rhetorical question "What prompts each of Israel's recent prime ministers to renege on his resolute intentions and instead adopt a policy of unilateral concessions?" raised the expectation that your answer might be "meddling by US presidents and the State Department." Since you are aware of both, I was surprised they didn't make your short list.

Your observation "These negative trends will continue until Israelis elect a modest prime minister." led me to think "not likely, at least not until hell freezes over."

Keep up the good work,
Lloyd Lionel Klein
