  • He’s done and doing a great job keeping this coalition crazy country governed. this is no a job for a wimp, on the one hand, or for someone who cant or wont compromise daily on the other. so inevitably the media and his wannabes have plenty to complain about, and with almost as much righteousness as if their advice might have turned out as good or better. Advice is never lacking, especially hindsight. but so far the proof’s i the pudding, most of the country’s jews and arabs and druza and christians at left to do their religious thing and make a decent living. im not even sure leaving the haredim out of a forced-draf situation isnt the wisest compromise today, since it’s allowing volunteers to do so. so too the arabs.congratulations Mr Netanyah.
