    Yonni, don´t get me wrong but your comment is slightly over the top. Let´s put the broad picture which is happening now into a different perspective. You live in a big house w/ lots of other neighbors.Your neighbors lived beyond the means for years.Bought new cars,bought a new TV,bought lots of other nice things whereas you just spent what you actually earned.Now your neighbors are beginning to loose their jobs and so can´t cover their debt anymore.One day your landlord ask you to pay their rent for them. How would this make you feel? Angry? Pissed? I guess so. Germany went through hard time beginning of the 2000s including a big reformation of the job market and so forth (look it up it´s called Agenda 2010).It wasn´t pretty at all. And now those countries,which are overindebted way beyond their shoulders,don´t want to go through a painful process of reformation. Coming back to my analogy. Your neighbors want to keep all their TVs,cars,goodies and what not instead of getting rid of their accumulated stuff they rather want you to pay their rent and get angry if you deny their request. Again cool or not cool? So putting this situation to what happened more than 70 years ago on the same level is 1st pretty bold and 2nd extremely disrespectful towards all the victims of the shoah.

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image as a well-run, normal country whose leaders are capable of keeping a secret.
