I have no idea who Zvi Hauser is, but according to Ha’aretz’s coverage of the decision-making process that took place regarding how the flotilla should be handled, he was the only person perspicacious enough to figure out what was going on and how it should be handled.
According to senior officials who attended the session, a few ministers expressed differing views but in the end a consensus was reached and there was not even a vote. One of the most vocal participants in Wednesday’s session was Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser. He was against the raid and said the ships should be allowed to dock in Gaza in order to avoid a diplomatic and public relations crisis as well as the embarrassment to Israel that a violent confrontation with demonstrators on the ships could cause. After senior defense officials expressed their opposition to Hauser’s views, his position was rejected.
Smart guy surrounded by a room full of idiots. He should be prime minister.
