How pathetic it is that some Arab leaders, including Palestinian leaders--`Arafat was the king of that--pin their political hope on "the next" leader of the Labor Party in Israel. King `Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who watches TV as Barbara Walters told us as a sign of his modern outlook, said that he is hopeful given the new leader of Labor. When I was growing up, South Lebanon and the Palestinian refugee camps were bombed by Labor Party leaders. Likud did not come to power until 1977. For me the difference between Labor and Likud is akin to the difference between Gore and Kerry, or between Seven Up and Sprite.
