Judging by journalistic and diplomatic attention to their views, nearly half the Jews of Israel have vanished, snap. They are the voters who refused to support Labor and other parties in the coalition that now runs the country with a thin parliamentary majority. Labor was fully entitled by the election to change Israeli strategy and set its fast pace toward the goal of peace for land. And to the victor go the op-ed pages.

Сьюзан уже привыкла к агрессивному поведению Хейла. Его любимым развлечением было подключаться к ее компьютеру, якобы для того, чтобы проверить совместимость оборудования.
