    Sorry, but you missed something. The Israeli counterparts would never in a million years be willing to resign. They will only resign if completely pushed up against a wall, as was the Golda Meir government of the Yom Kippur War or the first Rabin government. Then they did not have to check into any rehabilitation center, but merely continued on their merry way right onto the party lists for the next election. They were then placed back onto the party lists and eventually popped up again, Dayan as Begin’s Foreign Minister and Rabin as Prime Minister. That was the political level. Some people suffered worse. Chief of Staff Gen. David Elazar was made the main scapegoat for the YK War. He died of a heart attack in disgrace. Gorodish, another general, went off to a self-imposed exile to Africa, where I believe he died. But a joker like Peres, guilty of the Olso calamity, can lose elections and keep popping up. These people have no reason to resign, enter rehabilitation centers or in even that small measure admit any guilt whatsoever. They just ride it out, buoyed up by their buddies in the media, and the tragedy of errors goes on.
    By the way, you left Mel Gibson off the US rehab list, a recent and striking case which should be sufficiently worth mentioning.

    It just dawned upon me! How can people like Peres (Aloni, Sarid, Bellin) keep on pushing themselves into “leadership” positions when time after time they are rejected by the majority of the Jews in Israel?

    Simple! The dumb Jews don’t know what is good for them! These people are so arogant as to believe that they have the only truth, the only real answer, and all those who do not agree with them are at best impedments to a better society, at worst reactionaries that should be dealt with severely and “re-educated”.

    Rabbi Feldman, the Rabbinate’s gain was comedy’s loss.
