    They may be astute, even intelligent. They may be also plate-armored bullshitters, as many high ranking Britons think. They may be resourceful, manipulative, even intriguing. But for the job of PM or DM, there is no psychiatric screening. They can be fatally flawed in their personality, fatally indecisive, fatally lustful for power, disturbed narcissists, and these traits, which would probably be enough not to be hired by a head-hunter for a firm, don't exist for Israel's most important jobs. Just take the PM's decision to put Israel's Nº1 persona non grata as Israel's Top Diplomat, to realize, Netanyahu has a personality disorder. What about Ehud Bark, he is borderline to begin with, and much more than that. What about Lieberman? I leave it up to you. Maturity is like looking the lost keys under the street lamp, just because there you have some light to look for them, even though they are lost in the dark place of psychiatric disturbances, one doesn't want to assume, because they are uncomfortable to our neat, rational mind.
