Before meeting the two candidates, Avi Roeh and Adi Mintz, I wasn't terribly enthused by them, and after meeting them, I still wasn't sure. It was a discussion with Adi Mintz which decided me... against him. Adi Mintz had worked as Director of Moetzet YESHA and touted it as one his job experiences which best qualified him for the position. This was post-Disengagement, and I considered and still (if not more) consider the Moetzet YESHA leadership guilty of misleading its followers and contributing to Disengagement. They claimed to be trying to prevent it, but they failed totally and completely. The leadership not only never properly took responsibility, but they never apologized nor did they resign.
At the time Mintz was running for office here, I asked him how they could keep their positions after such a failure. He looked at me like I was from another planet or talking in Chinese. He insisted that they had added some new people to the leadership and that was sufficient. To me that's no more than superficial whitewashing, cosmetics. He still didn't get it.
"I'm not asking you to do what the Japanese did, but you shouldn't continue in public office."Obviously, we don't have the same moral standards. He has never heard of Harry Truman's "The buck stops here."
