Barak, Israel's Defense Minister, Abruptly Quits.
[link to news.yahoo.com]

ERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday abruptly announced he was quitting politics, injecting new turmoil into the Israeli political system weeks ahead of general elections.
Barak, Israel's most-decorated soldier and one-time prime minister, said he would stay on in his current post until a new government is formed following the Jan. 22 balloting.
His resignation could mean the departure of the most moderating influence on hawkish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who holds a wide lead in polls and is expected to easily win re-election. Barak, who heads a small centrist faction in parliament, often served as Netanyahu's unofficial envoy to Washington to smooth over differences with the Obama White House.

Well he's 70 years old. Could just be that he wants to retire. If it isn't that then it could be that he either doesn't want ot be a part of what is coming or has decided that his more moderate politics aren't going to be getting any more popular as rockets fly overhead in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. He and Bibi are usually at ods over how far to go in fighting the terrorists at the doorstep.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Re: Barak, Israel's Defense Minister, Abruptly Quits.
Do we think that..

a) he is annoyed at Bibi for going too far with Gaza
b) he is annoyed at Bibi not going far enough with Gaza

My gut says b.
If you believe that corruption exists,would it not then be clear that corrupt people would do anything to hide evidence of their corruption?This is why conspiracy theories exist.Only because corruption exists.

I'm thinking b also, but who knows. I didn't realize he was 70 years old. But it seems a lot of these guys that have been in power for a long time don't just quit. I think it's ego because they think they are the only ones who can do it right, which is why I find it suspicious when they just quit. Other possibility is he was told too.

Re: Barak, Israel's Defense Minister, Abruptly Quits.
he's not leaving politics...he's being forced out..Bibi probably found out he was selling him out to the current administration or already knew and had enough of it getting in the way of decisions he's trying to make as prime minister. Probably gave him two options..resign or be fired.

Barak may be 69 or 70, but that's not that old.

Current Israeli President and father of Israeli nuke program, Shimon Peres, is almost 90 years old.

Bibi Netanyahu's father Ben-Zion Netanyahu died at 102.

Former PM Izhar Shamir just died at 95.

Our own Ron Paul is like 124 years old in Planet Batshit-Libertaria's years.

my gut says a. barak is a lefty and bibi is well rid of him, in my opinion eb tried harder to please barack obama more than he did his own prime minister. the left is falling apart in israel.
