Close but no Arad…

Inspiration: Tikun Olam.

Why am I always last to get the memo? It appears that bruiser Ron ‘pressure’ Prosor, Zionist ambassador to Albion, was scheduled to be succeeded by no one less than Netanyahu’s own answer to Dr Strangelove, Uzi Arad.

And according to Ha’aretz: ohmyg-d, now I have to thank Lieberman… Close shave, Britain! Uzi ‘Dr Strangelove’ Arad is also the guy who once proclaimed:

I don’t think that one has to go that far because at the end of the day, I don’t think the majority of Israelis want to see themselves responsible for the Palestinians. We do not want to control the Palestinian population. It’s unnecessary. What we do want is to care for our borders, for the Jewish settlements and for areas which are unpopulated and to have our security interests served well. But also to take under our responsibility these populations which, believe me, are not the most productive on earth, would become a burden. We want to relieve ourselves of the burden of the Palestinian populations - not territories. It is territory we want to preserve, but populations we want to rid ourselves of.
Here, at about 8:30… Right little charmer, inne?

Those few instances when Avigdor Lieberman does the right thing are quite surprising. In this case, though, Israel was saved from this disgrace not because of Lieberman's wisdom (after all, I doubt he disagrees much with Uzi Arad), but because of his power struggle with Netanyahu. He didn't want someone close to Bibi in that position.

Yes, I kind of got that from the Ha'aretz piece, thanks!
