Oh yes, the country is bound to agree to that ...

Amir Peretz, military genius and compulsive proponent of industrial action, has decided, in his wisdom, that the way to pay for the war that is apparently to end in the next two days without any specific resolution, is to impose a special tax on the people in the center and south of the country.

Like that's going to work.

I think, Mr. Peretz, you're going to have to prove to us that you actually achieved something with your little war, other than strengthening the image of Hezballah in Lebanon and enabling them to rain katyushas down on the North of the country for a month and destroying whatever image Israel had in the public prior to all this, before we are likely to agree to pay your tax.

You have never really been in touch with the real people in this country - your strikes always benefited those trade unions that were strong anyway, and never really benefited the people who actually needed them the most - and here you are now, asking soldiers, whom you called up from the center and south (and north of course) of the country, to pay a special tax for the privilege? Apart from that particular inequity, where exactly are we supposed to get the extra money for this tax? Remember, even disregarding the death toll of your little war, it has gutted internal and foreign tourism during high season and is probably going to leave substantial parts of the economy in ruins.

Pay for it yourself.

Here here. Is he nuts? As if the general public should bear the burden of funding a war not opted for? We'll pay anyway, ultimately. You'll see.

We like to call him Shuarma around our home. Not really sure if he's up to making shuarma and falafel at the same time, but we'll consider it if he does anything good in office=).

Best,
