If Netanyahu plays his cards right, he could be a positive factor in bringing peace. He has enormous clout and leverage. With humility and with a genuine desire for peace, he could change the whole dynamics in the Middle East. Is he prepared to go the extra mile and extend his hand to the Palestinians in search of durable peace?  Of course the Iranians will try to scupper his plans. Ahmadinejad is no saint!

God Bless Israel...........from whom the messiah came, and blessed the World with His Son Jesus Christ.........

........Jeremiah 29:14.........

I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.

@ChandraPanchabhikesan   "... change ... dynamics in the Middle East"?  But Israel is 0,0000...1% of the ME, 20% of Palestine.  Civil war in the judenrein Muslim Arab bloody dictatorships and medieval kingdoms have nothing to do with Israel, but with their Islam.
