Criticism In Israeli Politics

Reader comment on item: The Right Moment for Israel's Danny Danon?
in response to reader comment: Danon/McChrystal analogy limited

Submitted by ZSI (Israel), Aug 6, 2013 at 05:38

"Danon's ability to denounce his own prime minister's actions points to his not being a routine politician."

Actually, in Israeli politics, virtually every politician criticizes and denounces everyone else, including towards the prime minister. So while the analysis might be correct, using this as a proof of Danny Danon's rising stock, it certainly doesn't hold water in context.
