    He is not the party pooper, Mr. Benvenisti. If you had enough cohonies or whatever political clout it is needed to occupy PM or Defense Minister`s Chair, you would have understood why. Whether far right, far left or whatever angle in between may remain & occasionally show up in small, private talks, impotence to oversee or execute some of the toughest decisions to the end without hesitation & sorrow, in the clout of own mixed feelings impairing or implementing some of the decision making processes. Even with the ideology lurking in the background, the Chair however immediately brings total sense of proportion & reality about the situation, the urgency to do what is right for today & tomorrow, to first of all serve the nation`s general interests & protect the nation from the realistic overall dangers, DESPITE one`s personal ideology & feelings. And this `fenomenon` by the way is not adherent to Israel at all.
