Life is Belief & Struggle - Ahmed Shawqi

If you thought Netanyahu was a problem for the US Administration; wait till they have to deal with "Yvette" Liberman.

Apparently, most Israelis are not very happy with Netanyahu's handling of the Lone Wolf Intifada.

Times of Israel reports:

A survey Saturday, commissioned by Israel’s Channel 2 and conducted by Midgam, found that 73 percent of respondents were either “dissatisfied” (35%) or “very dissatisfied” (38%) with the prime minister’s leadership in light of the security situation. When asked who would be the most capable leader in curbing the attacks, 22% said Yisrael Beytenu chairman and former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman. Jewish Home party chief Naftali Bennett came in second with 17% and Netanyahu third with 15%.
Former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi received 9%, while Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog got 5% and centrist Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid 4%.
Israelis have a right to be dissatisfied. Offering to put cameras on the roads won't stop attacks, in fact, cameras have absolutely no deterence value to stop Palestinian attacks given that the political infrastructure supports such attacks, and most likely, Fatah will be paying salaries to all Palestinians convicted of attacks against Israelis. Not to mention, cameras are easily disabled or destroyed, and it will take time - far too much time to get a network running when the attacks are happening now.

Jerusalem Mayor Barkat had the right of it. Canceling all Palestinian work permits would have been a good start until the 'troubles' ceased. This attack in Tel Avi probably would not have happened...luckily there was a soldier around but there won't always be one.
