Israelis, Jews who choose to live in Canada have chosen the Galuth. That is their choice to make, they place their destiny in the hands of strangers. Israelis who choose Olmert and Livni and Peretz opt to recreate the Galuth in Israel. That has been a contant feature of Zionist life ever since Ahad Haam and Brith Shalom of the first to tenth Zionist congresses.

Despite the Galuthite Jews circumstances and Sovereignty have driven Jewish expansion into the land of israel inexorably, so that now Israel is the largest Jewish community in the world. As for leadership which will stress the Sovereign versus the Galuthite, we are working on it. We have a nucleus around a serving MK, and we are raising the funds necessary to bring the message of unadulterated Jewish Sovereignty to the people who are utterly frustrated with the efforts to make peace with Barabarians.

As a proud member of a 4000 year-old culture which originates more than 25% of the world's innovations every year, I do not expect immediate success or bloody coups or bloodier revolutions. I do expect a patient turning of hearts and minds towards the concept of Israelite Sovereignty over the Land of Israel from the Yarden to the Great sea (that's biblical for you) which excludes national aspirations of invaders, be they Arab Turk or British. Faith Perserverence, steadfastness and the patience of two thousand years of waiting fo the opportunity.

I do not knock down America, our one and only steadfast ally (not if you ask Francsiko Gil-White). I only used the example of the Civil war to show that America suffered through enormous convulsions before it stabilized as a leading democracy, whereas Israel, in dire straits, still achieves minimally violent internal convulsions.

I have given up on despair. The European angst has nothing to do with me. We are working on the future of making Israel the best little country in the West.
