Will things change in Israel?
Within the last week, Israel was graced with the former vice-president and honorary president of the Socialist International, Shimon Peres becoming the President of Israel and his ally, Ehud Barak returning to the head of the Labor party after making millions in "private" business since he left politics in disgrace, crushed by the bulldozer Ariel Sharon. These two will likely have to contend with (if all things remain the same) Bibi Netanyahu, head of Likud as the next PM. Bibi, you may recall lost to Barak under the shadow of a number of allegations of fraud.
Where is the new leadership? Why doesn't Israel have a healthy "farm" system of new political leaders? As of the time of this writing, it appears that Ehud Barak will become the next Minister of Defense, replacing the Stalin look alike Amir Peretz, unabashed Commie sympathizer. Peretz, the former head of the Histadrut (the national labor union) was Israel's version of new leadership. While Labor was not in a position to form a government while he was at it's head, imagine what would have happened had Labor garnered enough seats in the last election to have been on top of the coalition instead of a coalition partner. Peretz, the commie would have been PM. This is a seriously warped system where only the corrupt and famous can ever really win. Israel needs a Torah observant PM and a revolution in thought. The system is broken. Israel is desperately in need of their version of Ronald Reagan.
