"My party activities have concluded."

Yeah, the old coot has done it, as the rumors predicted.

Politics make strange bedfellows, and this case is definitely not the strangest.

Besides, Peres was promised a brand new post - Minister for Galilee and Negev desert. So, Shimmy will be able to add to the long list of his past and present titles two new ones: The Galilee Eagle and the Negev Hawk.

Speaking about avians, the recent exploits of his brother Gigi make him an excellent candidate for a post of a seagull: dive-bombing Shimmy's rivals. He is so full of ordnance he squeaks.
