Trading Land for Peace

Ruth Rosen is playing Russian roulette with the lives of 4 million Jews in Israel.

Israel is a parliamentary democracy. The government in power is there by virtue of having won the last election. It is not a dictatorship imposed from above.

If Rosen's advice is faulty, the Jews in Israel will pay with their lives while she enjoys the safety of the UC Davis campus.

Unlike the powerful United States surrounded by oceans, Canada and Mexico, Israel lives in a very dangerous neighborhood and one mistake could be fatal.
