Olmert is a waste of space. He's only PM because Sharon had a massive stroke and doesn't look like he's going to recover. But to say that Netanyahu and Lieberman represent a preferable alternative is crass at best. What do you want, an Theocratic totalitarian Israel with an (at best) stagnant economy, or a progressive secular state guided by Jewish principles? I'd have Barak back in flash. He may have been autocratic, but at least he wasn't a failed economist or an international pariah! Whoever it is, one thing is clear, the Defence Minister at least has to come from the military. Because Peretz hugely out shaddows Olmert in terms of incompetence.
