    "If" and when A. Peretz becomes P.M. ,and the of probabilities under the mathematical equation of the Israeli electrote system and its political make-up, he will not be the first Moroccan presiding over a what it is arrogantly called the "developped" world. Monsieur DeVillepin is also of Maroccan origines, as well as under previous socialist government of Mr. Jospin there were number of Ministers of Moroccan origines. Granted not yet belonging to the Judeo-Arabo-Muslim background, but still they all belonged to that civilisation of the Romano-Berbere of Atlas and the Riff and the gread plain of Marrakech (i.e. the Sahara). At any rate, we all hope that whoever will take the rein of future government in Israel, will solve number of pressing problems:social, economical and political. It is a hope that moderation will prevail in both sides, whether with or whithout help of USA. But, Europe has to clean its act before asking for a seat at a possible solution. It is maybe the time for China , India and Japan to be called to the fron.

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.
