So confusing

The Israeli political scene keeps changing a lot lately and it’s getting harder and harder to follow all the developments. There’s Peretz elected to the Chairmanship of the Labor party after defeating Peres who is now joining Kadima headed by Sharon who used to be head of the Likud party but then quit to form the new party. And on top of all that there’s the never ending shenanigans of Paris Hilton to add to the confusion.

Shimon Pres, Amir Peretz and Paris Hilton. I just keep getting them confused. Israeli politicians, and heiress party girls, all fraught with scandal, all so often in the news. Similar as all three may be I’ve found a few ways that help me keep them straight. So without further ado, here’s a handy guide to help you tell the difference.
