The Fifty-Year War

The great majority of Jewish Israelis, living in 'old' Israel within the pre-1967 borders, rarely focus on this question, but they would be just as divided and paralysed if they ever had to answer it. This is not the end of the Fifty-Year War. It may just be the mid-point in the Hundred-Year War.

So they are stuck, and Israeli politics has been paralysed for the past 20 years. The man who has led Israel for more than half that time, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, pictured, epitomizes that paralysis.Photograph courtesy of Wikipedia
