Quote Of The Day

We set out today toward independence. We are creating a faction, a movement and eventually a party that will be centrist, Zionist and democratic. The top priority [of this movement] will be first and foremost the state, then the party, and only at the end, us. We invite anyone who believes in this path to join. The State of Israel is faced with tests that are not simple.

  --- Defense Minister Ehud Barak

  2. This quote would be really funny if it weren't so sad/

    Ehud Barak has got to be the most self-centered politician in the Knesset (and in this country, that is quite an accomplishment).

    This move is similar to his quitting in 2001 (forcing a direct election of PM instead of a general election), it serves the interests of exactly one person - Ehud Barak.

    That he says he puts the Countruy First and Himself Last shows that he either thinks that the entire country are idiots, or he thinks that the interests of the Ehud Barak ARE the only interests of imprtance in the country.
