Reacting to Israel

I agree with Rondi Adamson who finds the media's reaction to the Israeli election a little perplexing.

Writes Adamson: "I just saw this headline. (I have also heard variations on it from TV and radio newscasters and analysts numerous times since last night.) Uncertain Israeli election puts peace in doubt. Right. It's the uncertain Israeli election that is putting peace in doubt, not Hamas or Hezbollah or the long-standing anti-Israeli policies of the countries that surround Israel."


What's got the media in a tizzy, of course, is that "right wing" parties have made gains.

But why should this suprise anyone, since Israel's left wing policies have not ensured peace?
