Ehud Olmert to ‘Post’: Women need to take on leadership roles in Israel – The Jerusalem Post

Posted By on December 11, 2020

The political awakening in recent days, in the face of what appears to be a fourth round of elections in two years, expected to take place in the coming months, gives rise to various ideas about the composition of the forces expected to arise. The impression I get is that the prominent players in the opposition have learned nothing from their failure to form a stable and strong political force that will lead to the downfall of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his gang.The past year has proven to everyone who needed that the public system in the country needs a new kind of discourse. The naive, perhaps somewhat childish, expectations of Blue and White that the coronavirus justified an agreement with Netanyahu as an expression of the sense of urgency that necessitates unconventional steps collapsed.Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi truly believed that Netanyahu was worried about the fate of the country and he would abide by the agreement he signed. Since a government had to be formed, Gantz and Ashkenazi worked to formulate a responsible pattern of action to combat what seemed at the time the most immediate and serious threat to the stability of life in the country. I was convinced that Gantz and Ashkenazi were wrong. They were wrong and thought that what was bothering them was the same thing that was bothering Netanyahu.However, Netanyahu was and still is only concerned with one thing himself. The health situation of the residents of Israel, the economic downturn, unemployment and the collapse of businesses all of these are not the focus of the prime ministers attention. I am saying serious things. During the decades I have been active in Israels public life center, I have argued with prime ministers and sometimes sharply criticized them. I never had any doubt that at the center of their agenda there was no personal interest. No party interest was superior to what they believed was the real interest of the State of Israel. Most of them made mistakes mistakes that occasionally caused great tragedy to many in the country. I am no different from my predecessors. I was wrong too. I have never tried to evade responsibility for my mistakes, and like the prime ministers before me I hoped the overall picture would present a balance that alongside the mistakes would also mention the achievements and successes.But, the bottom line has always been concern for what is right for the state, its security and the health of its residents.Conducting a political struggle against a dishonest person is a difficult task. Netanyahu is an indecent person. When I said this in public there were quite a few who were angry with me and condemned the blatant style I used. Today, few dont recognize that Netanyahu is a crook, a pretender, a deceiver, unscrupulous and without any obligation to the commitments he made to tell the truth, to basic fairness to his opponents and even to his partners and supporters.There is no act of fraud that Netanyahu misses in the unbridled effort he makes to save himself from the avalanche that threatens to crush him and with him his family.
