Fischer: I Don’t Know Everything but Israel Must Do More for Peace

Outgoing Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer admitted that he does not understand everything in Israel but after only eight years in the country since taking the helm at the Bank, he is another expert on the Middle East.

He previously has injected his dovish political views through hints and gestures, but his agenda became clear in an interview with Army Radio last week.

“We could have made more effort to reach a peace agreement. What happened with Sadat won’t repeat itself. Israel has partners but we must help strengthen them,” according to Fischer. “We have to help them to establish the state that they want.”

In the same interview, Fischer admitted he does not understand everything about Israel, especially the culture.

“Yelling all at once around the table, I don’t understand,” Fischer said, If two people are already talking at the same time, everyone feels free to join in,” he said. “Everyone’s yelling, nobody is listening, and I don’t understand its functionality.”

  3. And why should he understand? He didn't grow up here… He didn't serve in the IDF… He has no idea how the average Israeli makes ends meet (gomer et hahodesh) as his income is several times the average income… As the Israelis say, he's living in a movie (hai beseret) as he's as far removed from the common Israeli life as one can be while still living in Israel…

    He can't even learn anything from his own staff as Bank Of Israel employees are among the best paid in Israeli government service…
