It’s crystal-clear that Public Security Minister Amir Ohana, one half of Tweedledum, Tweedledee, has forgotten who he works for, who pays his outrageous salary and covers his perks.
Like almost all of his elk, Ohana suffers from selective memory.
Ohana, on taking office, swore an oath to serve the people of Israel. He did not, to the best of my knowledge, take an oath to faithfully serve Benjamin Netanyahu, unless of course Netanyahu, following the example of dictators in other countries and other times, demanded from his underlying an oath of loyalty which supersedes the oath to the citizens of Israel. It would not surprise me if Netanyahu had so demanded and received it.
Ohana can’t serve two masters. It’s either the citizens of Israel or Bibi.
If he wants to serve Bibi, I suggest Mr. Ohana leaves the Knesset and join Netanyahu’s legal team.
It’s not surprising that recently an Israeli lawyer referred to various members of the Knesset as eunuchs.
Talking about the above, another one who has forgotten who he works for is David Amsalem. It never ceases to amaze me how these no-nothing individuals amass power and prestige, and then go and corrupt the very system they are meant to serve and protect.
I was once told many years ago that those you can do, those who can’t teach. Sometime later it was corrected to those you can teach, those you can’t get themselves elected to the Knesset. There is certainly some truth in this as many, if not the vast majority are simply a waste of space and time.
And to confirm the fact just read the Benny Gantz interview: ‘If I emerge from partnership with Netanyahu a sucker, so be it’ https://www.timesofisrael.com/gantz-if-i-emerge-from-partnership-with-netanyahu-a-sucker-so-be-it/
The problem is Mr. Gantz that you may well be the sucker but right now it’s the good citizens of Israel, many who blindly believed in you, that are suffering. Got the message?
And while it’s pleasing to see the demonstrator numbers increasing, they need to remember the police are not the enemy. That civil disobedience is the order of the day, and not civil disturbance. And that the various groups need to be far more coordinated.
Look, the bottom line is that Bibi is not going to go of his own free will. He needs to be forced out either by overwhelming public opinion and pressure or by his peers. Both frankly seem unlikely. It’s interesting to read what the foreign press writes about our “Crime” Minister and his loss of grip on the country. Just maybe the push will come from outside of Israel.
Question; I assume under the current government should Netanyahu, however unlikely, step-down, that Gantz becomes Prime Minister. Not sure that a person who goes back on his word, a backstabber, is any better. Food for thought.
All the above pales into comparison by the sad news of this morning. Messes Ohana, Amsalem, Zohar, Regev, and Mark, and of course, Curly, Moe and Larry, to name just a few of the useless, good-for-nothing lowlifes, drunken on power are nobodies. I have nothing but sheer utter and complete contempt for them and their ilk.
This morning I read of the passing of without question a world-class blues guitarist, UK-born (and Jewish) Peter Green (Greenbaum).
I’ve no idea if there is an afterlife. If there is I guess Peter is jamming with B.B. King, Chuck Berry, George Harrison, and John Lennon, with Roy Orbison and Tom Petty, and with Ginger Baker keeping rhythm.
Remember what is important in life.
