I might not be totally enthraled of my compatriot, Amir Peretz, about his general World Vision and the Israeli one in particular, he has achieved what the whole establishment thought he'll never reach: He has maintaine his total dignity in front of multiple attack about his authentencity for his speech, his wordly vocabulary, and his background as non-establishment man. He has despite all Haaretz desires, lasted as of now EIGHT MONTHS. Now, in my books, that's a hell of political eternity. He has imposed his cultural tolerant understanding of the Arabs raport with the Jews, which inheretly people that come from different cultural vista lack, he has shown that with decent hard work, and in spite of obstacles, not natural, the excellence does come out. Olmert tried to make sure that the Labour Chief will never be a competition to him, so he decided to give a Job that is tantamount to what Amir supposedly incapable of discharging. So you see, Yossi, Amir with all due respect has shown more stamina and intelligence than what your prejudices presumed. Shame on you, try and get out of the box, you have at Haaretz boxed yourself.
