I've Been Thinking:
Israeli elections are kicking off and it is spending some time looking at a political newcomer.
Benny Ganz, former head of the IDF, has launched his campaign.
Ganz's party is called "Y'Israel Lifnei HaKol". The simple translation is "Israel Before Everything". The translation that better conveys the sentiment behind the simple words would be "Israel is Our Priority".
Ganz sent out a very short video clip in which he says: "For me, Israel comes before everything. Join me and we will launch on a new path because we need something different and we will create something different. The screen then flashes the slogan Y'Israel Lifnei HaKol.
The video closes with Ganz saying he thinks he has "already said too much."
I disagree. In fact, Ganz has said too little. No plan. No ideas. No anything. Just a slogan.
