Bibi seems more confident lately. Perhaps 30+ standing ovations will do that for you.

Today, despite protests by Ehud Barak, Bibi took away control over the World Zionist Organization Settlement Division from Barak and placed it in his own office.

I can imagine the satisfaction around the cabinet table as they voted for this motion (I don't know if anyone abstained or voted against).

I'm sure Barak is fuming. Bibi took his favorite toy away.

Now what Bibi will do with it is another questions. Will he start to build? Or at least stop the destruction?

We'll see.

Sunday's events on Israel's Northern Border reminded me of Dir Yassin.

As has become clear, the IDF did not kill 20 Syrians trying to breach the Northern border, as Syrian government controlled media stated. Israel did not kill 10 Syrians, Israel did not kill 5 Syrians, and quite possibly Israel did not kill any Syrian attempted infiltrators at all.

What has inadvertently happened though is that like in Dir Yassin where the Arabs exaggerated and completely manufactured "atrocities" supposedly committed by the Jews against them, the Arabs have once again created a new circle of deterrence for us - one we weren't really prepared to create ourselves.

And that's good enough for me.
