The PM who says Ni

When I read this I couldn't help being reminded of good old Muhammad Sa'id as-Sahhaf, the Iraqi propaganda minister, and about the Knights who say Ni. Bibi has quite some hutzpah, trying to turn Israel's failure - which brutally cost the lives of more than forty young Israelis - into some kind of victory. If and when the fire is finally under control, that will be because of the blood, sweat, and tears of thousands of brave policemen and -women, firefighters, rescue workers and others, and because of the help, the expertise, and the hard work of hundreds of foreigners who came to help us. Any Israeli government official who tries to take credit for all that should be ashamed of himself. But then, if such officials and politicians knew any real shame, very few of them would still be where they are, and we probably would be in a much better state, in both senses of that word. PS: Of course, I confused the Knights of Ni with the Black Knight, also from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
