The Knesset Situation

Talks have resumed this week between Israel and the Palestinians (and the Egyptians and the Jordanians). Headheeb has a great post about the political struggles Ariel Sharon faces at home.

Headheeb places the chances of Ariel Sharon pushing the budget through at 70 percent. When you read his post, you will find that even when something is 70 percent certain in Israel, it still takes a Megillah to explain why. No one ever said democracy was pretty, but when it comes to Israel . . . I'll just say that sometimes you don't want to know how gefilte fish is made before you eat it.

Factions. Factions. And more factions. When you've got two Jews, you have three opinions. Seriously, I think that the problem with Knesset is that they are a little TOO self-interested. Not good for the country when your government places itself in front of national interests. Politics are a means to governing, not the telos (goal, end).
