    1. Peter Berkowitz is foolish to think that he can nudge the Palestinian Authority towards moderation. They will – as they have always done – take the money and put in in personal bank accounts as well as paying terrorists’ families salaries.

    2. Give them democracy and they will vote for Hamas.

    3. Give them “better” education and they will learn more about how terrible the jews are.

    4. Most of Netanyahu’s legal troubles are due to the legal establishment’s desire to overturn the will of the people.
