Buried in the article is a quote from Shimon Peres, the fellow who we noted stands most to gain from a spate of resignations in the cabinet. On Tuesday, he said, "that, in the next war, central Israel, the heartland where most of the population is densely concentrated, would be in danger of Iranian ballistic missile attack, which Israel would be unable to withstand."
This is from a very senior, but very quiet member of the very same government that is again committed to erasing whatever strategic depth the mountains and hills of Benjamin and Samaria and the mountains of Judea and the Jordan valley afford us. This is from the very same leader who indicated that he would be willing to surrender to the Arabs part of northern Samaria. So we see the direction of indirection that the American State Department is headed. Or do we?
Olmert, the top idiot, goes, either fleeing the country to avoid prosecution or cutting some kind of deal of sorts that basically means he shuts up and says nothing to the press. The idiot at the head of the Labor Party (Peretz) resigns, and a more respectable and intelligent - and murderous - puppet takes over. It no longer matters which party he is from.

But the coup de gras for him came with the death of the state president, von Hindenburg. At that point, Hitler persuaded the German Parliament to combine the offices of reichskansler and president into one, that of leader, or führer. This was to formally end the unstable structure of the German Republic.
In 1958, when the French got sick and tired of paralyzed premier after paralyzed premier attempting to run France, they turned to Charles deGaulle, a wartime hero, and he wrote the constitution of the present French Republic. He wrote into that constitution a powerful president, one that could not be unhorsed by the parliament of the country. Thus he ended the instability of the French régime. So what does that have to do with Israel? And what does that have to do with Moshe Katzav?
