    Okay, Landau has said that religious people are automatically disqualified to be President since they are not worthy of full participation in the state, except to fight in its wars, which they do beyond their percentage of the population. Then how about Shimon Peres for President?- he certainly wants the job bad enough. Landau claims that Rav Lau shouldn't get the job, besides being religious, because of various unproven allegations like taking money. Shimon Peres is totally clean in comparison. All he did was bring Yasser Arafat and his terrorist gangs to Israel, give them money, weapons and control of the Arab media in which to brainwash his people into becomiing suicide bombers. As a result of Peres' brillian policy, THOUSANDS of Israel have been killed or wounded, and yet there is nary a world of regret or remorse from this man for all the misery he caused. Yes, Landau, he is certainly more fit in your post-Zionist eyes than Rav Lau!
