"BEFORE HE entered politics, Barak was the most decorated solider in Israeli history. In April 1991, he was appointed 14th chief of the general staff and promoted to lieutenant general, the highest rank in the Israeli military."

And then Clinton heard that Barak wore a dress during that op in Lebanon...

Barak sold his cojones to the Clinton's during the Israeli election...
he is partly responsible for the crap we are all in. He should sit down and shut up.

imho it's a miracle that Arafat turned down the offer.

Well, my comments on Barak are as a gentile American.
I was also repulsed by his political entanglement with Clinton/Carville/Begala.

I still regard Barak with a cautious eye...but it took some courage to say these
things at a place like Brown University...

Maybe Barak has had his eyes opened a bit in the past couple of years.

Netanyahu (sp?) is my favorite (at least with my shallow understanding of
Israeli politicians)...he has enough of an edge (like Reagan) to keep the
vipers at bay...just by talking.

Not really. The US at the time, i.e. Clinton Inc., was his protector. He could do anything he wanted.
Hillary also became vey seriesly friendly with his wife. It was a hug and kisses relationship.

If he opens his mouth it should be only to say, "I made a terrible mistake. I was wrong."

It's time for a major change in Israeli government. Bibi is good, but he has had his chance. Labour is in der erd. Shas party, gag-a-maggot.

I would like to see Effi Eitam as PM, or Nathan Sharansky.
