Who’s The Idiot Here by Yossi Sarid Well of course the idiot or rather idiots here are the public - undoubtedly the misguided souls who voted for the idiots (and that’s too fine a description for most of them) into government in the first place. And secondly the apathetic souls who are prepared to be lead by idiots without taking to the streets and yell with all their might: ENOUGTH OF IDIOTS ALREADY – SHOW US SOME SANITY! There are intelligent and creative Israelis out there, but even the likes of Yossi Sarid, who says it as it should be said, must realize that even his truth and enlightened worldview has to be sold, marketed and made palatable to the public. Sadly, public relations is not a local strong spot and having breakfast with Lieberman, Dr. Yossi Beilin style is also not the way. The long reign of the second rate where these creatively-challenged “Right Wingers” have been shown time and again to be nothing more than blustering bulls in china shops that cause unbelievable damage to the country must come to an end. The time is ripe to open the way for others; Israelis who can see both the writing on the wall and the light end the end of the tunnel and who also have the energy and creativity to take us there.
