Amir Peretz is completely delusional. He actually argues that his being incompetent actually worked for the benefit of the country during the war. Are you that much of a "donkey"? One thing....and I've been saying this for years and so has Netanyahu..ministers in the government need to be experts in the field in which they hold the portfolio. For example, the Defense Minister must have a strong defense background.....the Finance Minister must have a strong background in Finance or Economics. In Israel the Ministries are doled out as political favors to amazingly incompetent people. We all saw the pictures of Peretz with the Binocculars with the lens caps still on telling Ashkenazi how he sees EVERYTHING! This is no way to run a country...there must be some kind of reform here and Perez needs to go home even BEFORE Olmert!
