Tough job, wrong guy

I was going to title this "Not very encouraging," but I wanted something a bit more optimistic, so "Tough job, wrong guy" it is.

It's very obvious that Israel's Defense Minister Peretz is totally out of his league, Peter's Principle par excellance or ad nauseum. Use the "comment option" to contribute your phrase of choice in whatever language.

He needs a better Sir Humphrey; I don't know who his clerk is, but oh, my...

It's bad enough that he can't even protect his own city,

2-4 Kassam rockets were fired at Sderot and the western Negev this morning, damaging a building and sending a woman into shock. Sderot residents protested outside their neighbor DM Peretz's home.

but he has no idea or control over army appointments, either.

Peretz unaware of Samia appointment
When he ran the Histadrut (Israel's main Labor Union), he had no problems closing down the country. But now he's "management." It's a different ballgame entirely.

Israel needs a Defense Minister, not an Amir Peretz!
