Quote of the Day

the taught me one thing when I was a child, Dudi - no snitching. Nobody will ever want to sit with you again. You are a wretched snitch. Are you not embarrassed?  

  -- MK (Chairman of Coalition) Dudi Amsalem (Likud), screaming in the Knesset at MK Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) after it became known that Lapid is a State witness in the indictment against Netanyahu (in one of the cases)

Two points:

1. Amsalem makes it sound like the Knesset is basically a mafia, or runs on mafia rules. Much of the public has not thought highly of the Knesset anyway, but I don't think most people thought of the Knesset as a mafia.

2. if Amsalem is upset at Lapid for being a "shtinker", as it is commonly known in Israel, he is basically admitting that Lapid is right in what he is claiming...

  1. I suppose there's a level of snitching about things that aren't worth snitching about.

    But Amsalem is a child, so I don't hold out much hope.
