The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Mr. Levy, it is incredible how frequently you miss the point. Racism has nothing to do with why we think DM Peretz is ridiculous. The PM's supposed campaign against Peretz has nothing to do with it. We think Peretz is ridiculous because he IS ridiculous. Countless Israelis despised him long before he was a cabinet minister. Not because of racism. But because, as head of the Histadrut, he made us late, kept our kids out of school, stifled medical care and caused billions of shekels of economic damage while hundreds, if not thousands of businesses went bust. We think he is ridiculous because his wildcat strikes so often crippled the country with no significant gains for workers. We think he is ridiculous for accepting the DM post when he has no military experience, and for not resigning after the war. Racism? No. Ridiculous? You bet.
