Rocket Man, I wouldn’t know

Rocket Man, I wouldn’t know where to start in interpreting this AP report and what might be behind it. As far as who is “moderate,” that’s always in the eye of the beholder, I suppose. Which, of course, is why it’s better for news agencies not to dole out this “accolade.” In any event, I think the most objective analysis of Israeli politics right now would have to deem Sharon the moderate. He takes a tough line on terrorism, but says he conditionally supports the eventual creation of a Palestinian state. Thus, he stands between the Labor Party, whose leaders want to start making new concessions to Arafat even as the terror continues, and Netanyahu, who claims he will expel Arafat and never agree to a Palestinian state.
