Something you didn't know about Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman

Some people surprise you. The other week a friend of mine told me a most unusual story that recently happened to her.

She was waiting at a hitchhiking post to catch a ride home, when a big car stopped to give her a ride.

She got in, and the driver drove her to her town along the way.

They didn't talk during the ride, but she kept glancing at him, thinking to herself that something was very familiar looking about the driver.

It turns out, the driver was none other than Foreign Minister of Israel Avigdor Lieberman, and it was his security guard sitting in the back seat.

Apparently Foreign Minister Lieberman often picks up hitchhikers and drives them home, even going slightly out of his way when it's a nearby town. And he drives the car, not some Knesset driver and not his security guard. I've now heard this from a few people he's given rides to, and if the hitchhikers talk to him, he's happy to talk to them in return.

That's a real mensch in so many ways. That's simply unusual.

And if you believe that, there's a bridge outside your office I'd like to sell you. Lieberman is no more than a mensch than his political mentor, Stalin.

millis, your comparison between Lieberman and the biggest mass murderer of the 20th century marks a new low, even by your standards.
