      "Hello? Is Anybody There?"

      by Tamar Yonah

      This post won't be long.  ....Because a picture tells a thousand words.

      Defense Minister Amir Peretz is unfit to serve as Israel's Defense Minister.  After helping to botch up the '2nd Lebanon War', and seeing more than 150 soldiers and civilians killed, as well as having our northern cities devastated by missiles slamming into our homes,  we now catch this latest blunder of his...

      Peretz looks through binoculars with the lens cap on, while being shown Israeli defense exercises on the Golan Heights.

      Feb. 2, 2007: 

      From AFP.com "Photographs splashed across the country's two major newspapers on Thursday, showed a rotund Peretz, lips set in concentration, face tilted to the light and eyes glued to binoculars... with their black lens caps still firmly on.  ....A vast majority of Israelis want him to resign from the defence ministry on the grounds of chronic incompetence and military inexperience."

      How long was he pretending to view these military operations? What did he pretend to see?  How long can one fake it?  With another war looming, and Iran threatening to destroy Israel, we need competent leaders.  "Hello?  Is Anybody There?"

      Peretz, sitting next to the new IDF Chief of Staff, Gaby Ashkenazi, looks through binoculars with the lens cap on, while being shown Israeli defense exercises on the Golan Heights. 
      The BBC writes:  "According to the photographer, Mr Peretz looked through the capped binoculars three times, nodding as Gen Ashkenazi explained what was in view."
