I am in the middle of a wonderful book The (Israeli) Prime Ministers by Yehuda Avner,given to me by my friend Lois Blumenfeld.It is a must read for anyone interested in the story of modern Israel, by Ambassador Avner who was a close confidant of most of the modern Prime Ministers.

I have a hard time following the logic of President Obama.More than once he says Gadaffi has to go.How? By who? Within what time frame?
Yet he announces we are not out to remove him.
If you were Gadaffi ,you would just wait it out.The British and French will get tired in 2 weeks.The US wants out now.The Arab League is in,then out then back in.Where are the Saudis and Jordanians,as well as the Egyptians.
It it all a charade..
Who are the rebels? Islamists? We really don't know.
Who will govern? even in the area they control?
Gadaffi says this will be a long war.He may be right.
I have seen 2 articles suggesting that this anti-Muslim attack will lead to greater pressure for the EU to push for a Palestinian State next year in the UN.
