Its not even National Election time in Israel, but leader of the Labor Party Ehud Barak has already begun attacking his potential rivals. Today he blasted potential Kadima candidate Tzipi Livni as “not fit to lead”
This is an area where Barak has great expertise. As Prime minister Barak, executed that “overnight” withdrawal from southern Lebanon, that empowered HAsezbollah and lead to the second Lebanon War. He acted like such a pansy during his negotiations with Yassir Arafat, that the terrorist decided despite getting a one sided deal, he could get even more. So instead of making peace, as unjust for Israel that deal would have been, he started the second intifada.
As a leader Barack has his own style of protecting Israeli citizens. Its called doing nothing, As Prime Minister he did little to fight back against the terrorist attacks from the Arafat/Abbas government. As Defense Minister, he does nothing to protect the Negev communities from the constant barrage of rockets.
Yep, Ehud Barak has much experience at being an unfit leader, so he should be the one Judging other people:

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on Kadima and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, the party’s leading candidate to win the primaries. “Even if Tzipora Livni makes the decisions, this doesn’t mean that she is fit to do so,” Barak asserted in an interview with Army Radio. “Her pride in UN resolution 1701 puts her judgment in question,” the Labor party leader added, referring to the cease-fire agreement that effectively ended the Second Lebanon War. Alluding to an ad Hillary Clinton’s campaign ran in order to cast doubt on Barack Obama’s experience, Barak continued, saying, “Livni is not necessarily qualified to provide the right solutions, neither at three in the morning nor at three in the afternoon.” The defense minister went on to call Kadima a “refugee camp,” claiming that the ruling party had “brought upon Israel the repercussions of the disengagement, the Second Lebanon War and a series of embarrassing affairs.” Barak did not spare Kadima’s second front-runner for the prime ministerial candidacy, Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, whom he criticized for inflammatory remarks he had made regarding Iran. Barak implied that the US was opposed to an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities but maintained that the military option “must remain on the table.”
