''I don’t see any difference between Hamas and Lieberman'' Wow! Thank you for the perfect example of reletivist, latent Anti-semitism which seems so prevelent in academia today. As a side note: Anybody who complains about our country's two party system just study Isreali politics a while - talk about complete disfunction and disproportionate democratic power.
