A lot of people are saying horrible things about the Israeli government -- that it breaks its commitments and that its word is no good. Some of this, surely, is just disguised anti-Semitism. Here's one guy, for instance, who says that the Israeli government has abandoned the "road map" peace plan that it pledged last year to respect, and that even if Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon plans to pull settlers out of the Gaza strip, Israel "will stay in the territories that remain" -- that is, the West Bank, which Israel would have to cede in order to create any kind of a viable state for the Palestinians.

Who is saying these horrible things? Ariel Sharon.
