There's an old Vulcan saying:

"Only Nixon could have gone to China." Perhaps the funniest lines in all of the Startrek Movies. However the line had a lot of truth to it. Nixon made his "bones" as a fierce anti-Communist. This fact gave him credibility when he opened communications with Communist China.

Why is this relevant? Benjamin Netanyahu, the new Prime Minister of Israel just might be the present day incarnation of President Nixon - minus Watergate of course. Bibi Netanyayu is a hard line rightist. He will only bargain from a strong position. If there's anything that the 12th century denizens of the Middle East respect, it is strength. Perhaps G-d willing we might see peace in Eretz Yisrael?

Now, if only Bibi was born in this country.
