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

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?

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.

Before cancer hit me, I was afraid in a way. But after cancer, I was afraid of dying, that the treatment wouldn't work. Fear had a different point of view. I just felt, whatever, I'm gonna ...

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Bill C-23, Fair Elections Act Seems Now on Solid Ground
Now that a Sen­ate com­mit­tee has rec­om­mended nine changes to Bill C-23, Fair Elec­tions Act, the leg­is­la­tion seems pretty solid. And, since Pierre Poilievre has, ap­par­ently, in­di­cated pri­vately that he's open to changes, an amended ver­sion of the bill will likely be­come law by this sum­mer. We would prob­a­bly have got­ten to this point ear­lier had not the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the bill ...

Putin Decrements Our Peace Dividend: U.S. Ground Troops Being Deployed To Poland
If you were looking to the wind down of the Afghan war as creating a potential peace dividend, that's now unlikely due to Putin's nationalistic moves on the Ukraine.

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
