    People do not seem to make the obvious connection between comments such as Mr Herzog's about Moroccans vs Europeans, and the treatment of Palestinians in Israel. According to these people, non-Europeans are only fit to be a labor force, to be abused and belittled. The fact is, Mr Amir Peretz being an "Arab Jew", he has much more credibility in the eyes of the Palestinians than Mr Herzog could ever have. It was Mr Peretz who managed to make a deal with the Palestinian unions and fought for some of their working rights in Israel. People such as Mr Herzog, not only do not understand Palestinian Arabs, but how could they even consider them seeing how they treat Arab Jews? These things are not lost on the Arab public. Here is a man from Labor, from the left, Mr Herzog, talking like Lieberman; if Israelis don't wake up, and remove him, you know the whole society is turning to fascism.

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.
