From over here. paragraph #9 sounds weird. The PM's office has decided that Peres (who more than a few have been dumping on as a fool and harmful to Israel's interests) will be the point man for dealing with the world, while both the nation's prime minister and secretary of state will keep mum publicly, limiting themselves to "quiet diplomacy." Seems a bit topsy-turvy, but then I admit to only knowing what I read in the newspapers.
