With A Family Like This....

There's an interesting e-mail that's been circulating in hebrew, roughly translated it says this:

What do you think of a family like this:

Wife: Author, playwrite, and artist, originally a kibbutznikit with left wing ideology

First Son: Left Israel, lives in America, extreme left winger who associates with the organization "Yesh Gvul"

Second Son: Also left Israel, refused to serve in the army

First Daughter: Openly lesbian, lives with her partner in Tel Aviv, is part of left wing group "Machsom Watch" that stands at IDF checkpoints and interferes with the soldiers from doing their job

Second daughter: Known left winger

So you definitely ask, who's the father? whats his beliefs? And how much does he care about the interests of the Land of Israel and the people of Israel, and what sort of education did he give his children? And is it possible that he's lived for so long with a family like this and their views didn't stick onto him at all?


Is he fitting to be our next prime minister???

(All information is facts taken from articles in the paper)

Another thing I saw, not in the same email, was about his service in the army.

Recent Prime Ministers:
Yitzhak Rabin-Ramatkal
Benyamin Netanyahu-officer in sayeret Matkal
Ehud Barak-Ramatkal
Ariel Sharon-general of southern command

Ehud Olmert- writer in the army newspaper!!!

The fact is that there is a general shift beginning in Israel from the people and the country being in a situation that demands that the leader have a strong military background and other civic matters come second to wanting a leader who can provide for out defense but is more qualified to make strong domestic decisions, e.g. on the economy, health care, etc.

ronald reagan's son is a big lefty, and even spoke at the last democratic conventon. ron reagan, if you don't remember, is the demigod of right wing american politics

dick cheney's daughter is lesbian.

avraham burg, that lefty from labor? know who is father was? one of the founding members of mafdal.

don't judge people by their families. there's enough of a lefty history in olmert to indict him on his OWN actions

Hey, don't forget Ronald Reagan's other son is a huge right wing radio talk show host. Yeah, I agree that a family's pedigree does not necessarily reflect a politician's views. JFK's dad was a flaming anti-semite and friend of Hitler. Would you say the same of Jack? You also wouldn't have Teddy "Where's my vodka" Kennedy put in the same league as the rest of his family.

I understand that it's a campaign ploy to get people "turned off" to Olmert, but bringing up his family history isn't what's going to do it. It hasn't worked for any other candidate.
