Quote of the Day

The discussion held in the Finance Committee last week we on a topic that is justified, but the timing was wrong. The issue is justified, as I should not be hit with a personal tax that no previous Prime Minister had to pay, but the timing was wrong and for that I am sorry.

 -- PM Benjamin Netanyahu

As I said last week, I don't know if the issue itself is right or wrong as to whether or not he should have to pay or not retroactively, as I don't know what the policy has been pre-Netanyahu. But, to debate this issue in the height of the terrible unemployment happening right now is the height of insensitivity, but that is really the story of the entire government at the moment. At least he apologized.

  1. Not only did he apologize but he postponed approving the money that his opponent/partner was entitled to. Plus he still has time to get it approved before he is entitled to that money. How selfless of him. At least Fox agreed to not take the money that also had bad optics.
