ABSTRACT
This article presents the author's views on the political conditions in Israel. The author refers to the Israeli elections in which politician Binyamin Netanyahu defeated Prime Minister Shimon Peres. The author states that the election was a disaster, a triumph of emotion over reason, of the street over the conference room, of outdated Zionist slogans, Arabophobic chauvinism, and religious reaction over the prospect of peace in the Middle East. It is reported that the Palestinians are engaged in a classic struggle of national liberation that can be ended only by granting them their land and independence, the Israeli Left saw the Oslo agreement and its consequences as historical inevitabilities that only the benighted would contest.
