general update

So now we have a minister for strategy against Iran. I saw a great comic in the yisraeli newspaper a couple days ago which had a secret meeting of the Iranian folks. The President asks, "does anyone have any comments before we go to the next step of enriching uranium" One of the advisors says that he proposes delaying the nuclear project because he heard a report that the Israelis just a appointed an important minister for strategy to work against Iran. In the next frame they all crack up laughing.
Not that I'm against Lieberman, he may be able to do some good for the good guys in this country, but taking the "Ministry against Iran" position just seems silly. I guess if we don't get nuked by the time this government finishes, then he can claim success. If we do get nuked, then we won't be around to blame him.

Anyways, we're off to Eilat this afternoon. I tried calling the russian girl and her mother now has her cell phone, and she said she was in school. Then she said that her Hebrew wasn't good enough to understand me, so she hung up.

The answering service guy I was expecting to hear back from replied with a negative, so I called someone else who was interested in working on the idea. Now we'll see what happens.

I sent an email to an arab knesset member asking for help finding
qualified non-Jewish workers. I wonder if he'll reply.

I saw the cartoon as well. The entire government is a laughing stock.

I wonder how much they use their email...

Apparently, Leiberman had the choice between the "Minister of Iran" or the "Ministry of Silly Walks" and he mode a mistake and chose the one with less influence.
