The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
The appointment of a Moslem to the Israeli government is a sign of a confident and maturing nation. I don't know the circumstances of this appointment, but drawing from all of a nation's citizens for leadership is important. JFK's election didn't undermine the Protestant majority in the US. Majadele as a minister will not undermine Israel's Jewish nature either. It will further the conhesiveness of all its citizens. It's an important step, and for once Peretz has done something appropriate.
