    Olmert appointed Peretz to defense in the first place.The were other civilan defence ministers in Israel, Ben Gurion, Lavon, Igal Alon and Moshe Arens. Some were excellent and osme were mediocre. But none was so blatantly stupid and unfit to carry out their duties like Amir Peretz demonstrated over the 7 months on the job.But what is worst to be incompetent and unable to learn the ropes quickly ? Or Being a "smart" lawyer, like Olmert, and show such poor judgement as to appoint an army drop out, uneducated person with all the characteristics of a street hooligan which Amir Peretz is. There are many Sfardim educated and experienced politicians. Why didn't Olmert appoint Benjamin Ben Eliezer who served as DM before or Ami Ayalon, ex Navy Commander,Shin Beth Head and a person with ceredentials seeking peacefull solutions to our problems.Olmert should fire Peretz,admitt mistakes and at the same time resign as PM!!!! Olmert Pretz, Halutz am Israel is waiting?
