    Will you Barak stand up to Hamas and Hizbulla in the same forceful manner as you have with the Rabbis? Can you Barak promise the citizens of Israel no more terror not from the South and not from the North ?Will you Barak stand up to Iran and promise the Israeli nation that Iran will never have the capabilities to launch a nuclear attack against the major cities of ISrael ?So far with the massive armiing in the South and the North with Hamas and Hizbulla stronger than ever before and the Iranians pursuing without hindrance their nuclear ambitions ,there is no evidence of a forceful defense minister on the contrary all indications are that the risk of total annihalation of the State of Israel increases day by day,whilst you are as usual are the weak ineffectual hesitant defense minister . Give me a Ben Gurion,a Golda Meir a Menahem Begin any day .
