I quote from the article :They ceded control of national institutions to political interests and second or third-rate politicians who couldn't get elected to parliament./// This is just not true. Third rate politicians DID get elected to parliament and many got ministerial positions.This is why Gaza receives electricity.This is why the Republican party is kicking off the election campaign with a Middle East conference.This is why a president resigned,we lost a war and we have a Prime Minister who appears to be under investigation.A former defence minister who did not know how to remove lens covers,a tax supremo who had to resign,a chief of staff who jiggled his share portfolio 20 minutes before a war,a deputy foreign minister who accuses the police of wrong doing before the facts are fully known.I could go on and on but suffice it to say that we need elections now.
