Mr. Avineri's thesis simply doesn't hold up to the realities of the political world as we know it. Ronald Reagan an actor in cowboy movies became President of the USA. There are many other examples. If you look at Mr. Netanyahu's early career you could not have imagined him Prime Minister of Israel. There's nothing wrong with two honest men who wish to work for the well-being of their country.
