Peretz is incompitent and has proven it time and time again He is not qualified for the job because has never served in millitary instead he was out founding peace now his version of taking a first strike involves not doing your job so you can ask for more money not getting the millitary to do its job to defend the country. Over 70% of the Israeli public dont have any confidence in him and want him gone. He is clashing with the PM over defense policy. Minister of defense is one of the most important jobs in the government not just a politcal posting its about making all the right choices on how to prtect the country from its enemies. Israel needs a compitent minister of defense and Peretz is just the opposite and he needs to go now for the good of the country.
from the article: Peretz doesn't know - or doesn't care
