Danite...the trouble with you is you are too busy swinging from one extreme to the other to see sense (like that Greek composer Theodorakis, as well as Uri Avnery). Being a follower of Beitar and Herut, particularly at a time when they were considered l'enfant terrible in Israeli politics, and then taking a sharp left turn does not exactly expose you as being discerning and consistent. Your wild embrace of Amir Peretz is bewildering, especially considering his total lack of experience and coherence on the diplomatic and security front. In fact, he may turn out to be a failure on that score like Barak, in addition to transforming Israel back into a Histadrut state. Educated young Israelis will end up seeking economic asylum in Germany - a comforting thought indeed. Populist slogans never saved anyone, and socialism as a self-sustaining economic theory has been thoroughly discredited. By the way, since when was 'akbar' a Hebrew word?
