Why the unity government is not worth the paper it is written on

Those drawing any kind of equivalence between the two sides in the ME conflict, or working towards accepting the unity government which was established yesterday - and condemning supposed Israeli 'intransigence', would do well to view the items below (An overview from Haaretz is here):
