    http://news.yahoo.com/shocker-israels-barak-quits-politics-095602974.htmlJERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday abruptly announced he was quitting politics, injecting new turmoil into the Israeli political system weeks ahead of general elections.

    Barak, Israel's most-decorated soldier and one-time prime minister, said he would stay on in his current post until a new government is formed following the Jan. 22 balloting.

    His resignation could mean the departure of the most moderating influence on hawkish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who holds a wide lead in polls and is expected to easily win re-election. Barak, who heads a small centrist faction in parliament, often served as Netanyahu's unofficial envoy to Washington to smooth over differences with the Obama White House.

    A ceasefire is not peace. Peace is not the interruption of conflict, it is the resolution of conflict. And unless the palestinians/arabs admit defeat or finally accomplish driving all the jews into the sea, there will be no resolution of the conflict, and as such, no peace.

    I hope the children of all of these people just tire of war.


    A generational shift may save them.

    that shift would have to be on both sides

    Still no answer. What is the palestinian end game?

    We know the Israeli endgame. Secure borders, no more attacks, and a final treaty using the current borders more or less.

    Why do people keep spewing the bullshit they are fed by the media?

    What ceasefire? Israel is flying drones over Gaza as we speak. Israel doesn't like peace.

    Abbas is going with the statehood solution for their rights they deserve. And Hamas supports the UN bid.

    Meanwhile, Israel is threatening heavy steps if Palestinians go for the most peaceful solution to the conflict.

    How dare the Palestinians do exactly what Israel did to achieve statehood!

    Don't just look at this UN bid as the end. There are plans Israel has, even if it succeeds. Israel will refuse to everything. And they will take steps to completely destroy a chance for a Palestinian state. Israel won't allow a flourishing economy besides them. If the Palestinians do control their borders and trade. You will see Israel resorting to violence.
