"When politicians reach agreements, it's amazing how fast ordinary folks can come to a change in thinking. Change the leadership and the economic conditions and you'll see how easy the change is" Space does not allow a full rebuttal. If Kasrils believe just 1% in what he said, he'd be doing something about the ethnic cleansing and human rights abuses in neighbouring failed state Zimbabwe, which impact far more on SAs economy, crime and security than the Middle East ever could. He is part of a cabinet that remains shtum about Mubabe's abuses, which are worse than ever occured in SA, Israel or Gaza. Kasrils was a failure as a guerilla (got his follwers killed) was a failure as Minister of Forests (he should have learned from Israel) has messed up as Minister of Intelligence (the joke is because he has none of his own) is platzing over the succession to (his protector) Mbeki and now wants to do the same for Israel. Stick to Olmert.
