On the Fingers of One Hand

I haven’t written a political post lately because, frankly, the government absolutely disgusts me. Apparently it disgusts most Israelis also. A recent poll shows that only three percent of Israelis approve of our Prime Minister, and one percent approve of the defense Minister, Amir Peretz. We’re talking about numbers that you can count on the fingers of one hand. It is an open secret here that there will be another war this summer, so I don’t think the politicians are going to bring down the government before this happens. This will be partly because it won’t be safe for the country to be involved in elections, and partly because the politicians who will be going in don’t want to take the blame for whatever failures the war will point out.

Uri Orbach sums it up here. Unless something big happens, I’ll stick to posts on Jewish themes for the time being.
