Finance Minister Gets Philosophers Mixed Up


Finance Minister Yair Lapid provided his detractors with much cause for mirth over the weekend when he made another one of his periodical Facebook gaffes.

This time, the leader of the secularist Yesh Atid party got his philosophers mixed up – or at least, the times in which they lived. Lapid – who has been a columnist and journalist for most of his life – wrote a long Facebook post that was phrased as a prayer to G-d for Pesach, and loosely based on the famous 'Dayenu' Seder song.
