Diplomacy: First politics, then the world

Avigdor Liberman took over the Defense Ministry on Tuesday in a changing-of-theguard ceremony at the Kirya that was as parve, staid and commonplace as these ceremonies usually are.

There was the honor guard, the handshaking, the inaugural speech by the new defense minister.

And this speech, like the ceremony, was not especially noteworthy. Granted, Liberman – a resident of the Gush Etzion settlement of Nokdim – said that in the tension between the unity of the people and the unity of the land, the unity of the people takes precedence, but this was really nothing new for the Yisrael Beytenu head, who has said in the past that in exchange for genuine peace he would leave his home.
