I swear, Israeli politics are a lot funnier than American politics.
Lieberman dubs Peretz stupid, racist in row over minister post
Strategic Threats Minister and Yisrael Beitenu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman on Friday said Labor Party Chairman Amir Peretz is both stupid and a racist, as the war of words between the two ministers continued to escalate.
On Thursday, Peretz, who is leading a move to appoint the first Arab minister in Israel’s history, described the appointment of MK Raleb Majadele as a response to what he called “Lieberman’s racism.”
Speaking to Israel Radio on Friday, the Yisrael Beitenu leader said that “Amir Peretz’s speech [on Thursday] before the Labor Party Central Committee proves that he is stupid and a racist.”
I think they should just title this, “Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah!”
I mean, really, gentlemen. Grow up.
