Minister Without Portfolio. Good G*d! This clown actually believes that the move to oust him is "an attack on the national morale" (sic). He is clinically delusional as well as incompetent. It is an indictment of the entire Labor Party that they voted an illiterate buffoon like this to be its leader, knowing the immense damage he would do to Israel if he ever got to a position of responsibility -- which happened. What were they thinking??? Ben Gurion must be spinning in his grave. This will kill Labor for good with the voters if they don't pry Peretz away from the DM job, and soon. Well, good riddance. At least, its clear that even they see this now. It took leftist Haaretz far too long to finally run an editorial calling for Peretz's ouster -- way too little, way too late.
