Shalom it is clear that Olmert has little control over his party and his cabinet. In fact the government of Israel at the moment reminds me of the suggestion for a 553 Reconnaissance Wing patch. To replace the "Cavete Cattam" patch designed by Milton Caniff, it was proposed a new one, featuring two cats, wearing white bermuda shorts, standing knee-deep in chicken shit and stabbing each other in the back. Both Barak and Bibi are clearly acting to promote their own interest in the inevitable post-Olmert showdown and Olmert seems to be clinging to power simply to stay out of jail. On Broadway it might make a good farce, but as the government of a major nation in the Middle East, it is pathetic and a threat to that nation. Israel cannot afford the kind of incompetence that has come with the new generation of politicians.
