Comrade Peretz can't see the light

Israel's 'defense minister' Amir Comrade Peretz looked through a set of binoculars that had the lens caps on at least three times during a briefing by new IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi in the Golan Heights. What the heck was he thinking?

That's Peretz on the right. Al-AP reports that "The photographer said Peretz raised the capped binoculars three times, nodding as Ashkenazi explained what he was "seeing."

What a perfect metaphor for Peretz's tenure at the Defense Ministry!

Update 5:33 PM

And here he is on video!

It has been on the news so many times here, and on late-night TV.

Peretz showed the world just how inept he really is. Sorry, but I was LOL so hard that I could just point at the TV screen so that my husband could see why I was nearly choking.

Did Israeli TV have as good a time with it? I am surprised there is no video that I could find online.

Carl, the real underlying problem isn't with Comrade Peretz' binoculars..

It's with YOUR racist Ashkenz underhanded binoculars.
