    Good for him. Last summer Romney went to Israel and said that the Palestinian GDP was half Israel's at $10,000/person. I was astounded, after reading about the roadblocks and the oppression I was surprised that it wasn't 1/10 of Israel's. I got a sense that there are a lot of scrappy Palestinians enterpreneurs.

    The Likud's model of Israel vs the Palestinians is something from the 1950's. If Israel ever makes peace with the Palestinians, both sides will prosper massively.
