    Ha'aretz writes that Herzog said "The report concludes that the government knowingly decided to destroy Gaza." Destroy Gaza? Either Ha'aretz missed something in translating Herzog's Hebrew, or Herzog is now a tool for Palestinian propaganda. There may have been a lot of destruction in Gaza, but Gaza not even close to being "destroyed". It could be that it's remarks from the likes of Herzog that are successfully bending Cast Lead so far from reality that nobody can even deal with it any more. Gaza was not destroyed, and Herzog's lie only stokes the fires of those who wish to warp reality against Israel. Herzog should focus on the 8 years of Palestinian war crimes that preceded and caused Cast Lead.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
