    Without getting into the controversy over how much is new and reliable in the revelations from Moshe Sharett's diary, as quoted by Tom Segev, the question again arises as to why Sharett's son, Yaakov, thought it worthwhile to publish them. True, Sharett is revealed in them to be a complex, sensitive individual with literary talent, but he is also shown to be weak, vacillating, lacking in leadership capability, and to be a person who was in no way suited to the post of prime minister in those difficult years.Characteristic examples from the original diary: "I am walking around these days like a sleepwalker, quaking from shock and lost in a labyrinth, totally at a loss ..."; or, "What shall I do, what shall I do? I am being driven mad by my thoughts, paralyzed by depression and by want of council and resourcefulness. I am suffocated within myself and lack the strength even to cast off my mental distress." In short, a classic case of a person who came to praise, but ended up cursing.
