    It's a matter of reorienting the priorities of the government. Netanyahu should spend less time running after Abbas and every foreign self-styled peacemaker and take himself to issue of the economy, education and infrastructure, all of which need attention in various ways, particularly education. As for Yishai, his shortcomings are painfully obvious--worry a little less about who's trying to get into the country, and a little more about who's already here. This display at the kibbutz should be a lesson heard loud and clear by the the entire government--get down to the hard work of the people, and spend less time on TV and radio. Believe me, the people will know well who is serving them and who is serving themselves.
