Israel's Leading Leftist Loon: The Left is Too Good for Israel

The left-wing party “is probably too good for you, too good for the state.”


Yossi Sarid may be the most ridiculous man in Israeli politics. A Meretz leader, the part of the left that doesn't think the left is 'left' enough, he was the Minister of Education and anyone in Israel who can't read or write ought to blame him.

How ridiculous is Yossi Sarid? This ridiculous.

MK Yossi Sarid once admitted in a radio interview that his mother used to bathe him in the tub until he was 21 years old.

Then there was the time that he went to heaven but remained an atheist.

Yossi Sarid, a vocal atheist and former head of Meretz, raised quite a few eyebrows this week when he told an Army Radio interviewer (in the Hebrew interview below) that he once died and experienced his soul rising up to Heaven.

YS: …But I should clarify that I believe that this entire experience took place without Divine intervention from any Father in Heaven. I do not believe in the eternity of the spirit. That contradicts my ideology.

So you could expect a reasoned and sensible responsible from him to Netanyahu's win.

Former minister Yossi Sarid — an ex-Meretz party leader — tells the Walla news website the left-wing party “is probably too good for you, too good for the state.”

It was either that or "I'm taking my ball and going home."

But it's the other way around. Israel is too good for Meretz and Sarid.
