Congratulations to all Israelies on the elections.
I just read that Nir Barkat won.
I heard that he is more progressive than the previous mayor of Israel, but I am wondering how much he is willing to give into the Peace process. While I am happy that he might shed a new light, I am skeptical, since he wants a united Jerusalem, and can not give East Jerusalem back to the Palestinians (Personally I think that Jerusalem should be either a shared capital for both states with equal rights for both sides or it should be like the Vatican-- it should be an international city for people of all faiths-- a city of love!)
