Shut up


After Israeli Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz opened his mouth last week to warn that an Israeli bombing run against Iran was inevitable, oil prices had their biggest single-day jump in history while global markets tanked.

On Wednesday, the Jerusalem Post’s Michael Freund offered some advice to Mofaz and the countless Israeli politicians who mistake speech for virtue: Shut up!

Meanwhile, Ynet’s Amos Carmel deconstructs the oil jump and finds Mofaz’s remarks were not the cause.
