Nothing bigoted about "old white men" at all. Nope, move along now.

Have faith Destro. Change in leadership will happen. it is happening slowly in the U.S., it will happen in Israel too.

Good thing about these old white men is that they die off soon.

Being glad about a democratically elected non-tyrant dying = Being a shithead.

Tzipi Livni ring a bell destro? She was the opposition leader for Kadima, has been Israel's foreign minister. Not exactly an old white guy. And she's contemplating a return to politics - though I'm not particularly impressed with her performance when she was foreign minister.

Seems that your grasp of Israeli politics isn't exactly that great.

Seems my grasp of Israeli politics isn't exactly that great? You know I did not write this opinion piece in Haaretz, right? You do have a grasp of that reality?

re: #6 Dark_Falcon

But dead white old reactionaries is the best future prediction I can make. Because they are old and will die soon and leave no legacy but sterile failure.

re: #9 Destro

You do realize that you're the one who put together the headline in this post, and your choice in bolding the initial paragraphs show your assent with the theme of the op-ed.

You could have disagreed with the op-ed or noted the writer's own lack of knowledge about Israeli politics.

You didn't.

That's on you.

Your follow up language clearly shows that you identify with the writer, and go one step further.

And FWIW the criticisms apply just as well to the op-ed writer who penned that awful piece.

re: #11 lawhawk

The headline is the article's exact headline. Duh. Headlines are bolded. Double Duh on you. You don't like the editorial you are welcomed to write Haaretz.

Fling an insult, get a downding.

re: #10 Destro

I happen to think Netanyahu will have better legacy than that. And even if you were right, saying it the way you did was ugly and uncalled for.

If you think bigotry is age-related you're pretty naive. Reactionaries reproduce in every generation. You're in a thousand-year war and don't know it.
