I think everyone sort of shed a tear for dear Tsippi, kvetching to the world that none of the Arabs would even politely shake her hand at Annapolis.
Tsippi just wants love, and she believes in taking chances.
Loves me, loves me not, loves me, loves me not.
What does Israel have to do to win the world's love?
Get more petals to give away?
Sorry Tsippi. I don't think all the petals in the world will help.
