There is an old saying that defines insanity: “When something doesn’t work you still keep on doing the same thing……over and over again….. in the hope that in the end it will somehow work”. That personifies Benny Gantz and his seemingly never-ending quest to form a unity government with our Dictator-in-Chief. How else can one explain the farce that has been going on ever since Mr Gantz blew up Kahol Levan for a greater cause.
You don’t have to be a college graduate to know that you never quit one Company to join another Company till you have an agreement in hand. But that is what Gantz did. You don’t have to have a degree in history to know that Netanyahu has back-stabbed every and all of his political opponents for the past 15 years. The only person who stood up to Netanyahu was Sharon and unfortunately for us he died too soon.
Gantz has acted like a car buyer who comes into a Dealership to negotiate a new car purchase. When he enters the Dealership he is greeted by a smiling Dealer Principal who tells him it is his lucky day, because today more than any other day the Dealership needs to make a sale. Gantz tells the Dealer that he wants to put any differences aside as there is a health crisis ravishing the world. He has entered the Dealership in order to come together for the good of our country. He even broke up with his natural family to prove this point. So the Dealer Principal offers him the most expensive vehicle with the highest payments and the longest contract….because that is the only vehicle he has left to sell. “Believe me? Would I lie to you? Oh, and by the way, you can take it or leave it because all the other Dealerships have closed”.
In the March election over 1,200,000 Israelis voted for the Blue and White Party. Anybody who has seen Benny Gantz talk in person knows charisma is not his strong point. Nevertheless people voted for him because they believed that he had integrity and a plan to make the country better and as such they voted for the change he promised. By blowing up the Blue and White Party, which had continually gained strength from its’ inception, Mr Gantz handed a prize to Mr. Netanyahu without receiving anything in return. Benny Gantz basically spit in the face of his voters. That puts him on a par with Orly Levi-Abekasis.
This morning talks between Gantz and Netanyahu broke down again; surprise, surprise. The fact is that my 5 year old grandson could negotiate better than Gantz and if you think this is an exaggeration then you probably still believe that the world is flat. Then again, the first thing a 5 year old kid would demand is an explanation as to why he and his friends should not be allowed to go to the beach while gatherings of up to 19 non-Zionist citizens dressed like they have just come out of an 18th Century shtetl somewhere in Poland can get together to pray for god knows what.
