Can't believe I missed Peres. And I could picture Moshe's face and first name but couldn't recall his last name. Also missed Eshkol, Allon, Begin, and Shamir.

Got them all this time but realized that before I was thinking of Moshe Dayan... who apparently was never prime minister. No wonder I couldn't think of is last name. Never heard of the other guy before looking him up just now.

Anybody else have the experience of taking a quiz, leaving a comment, and then when you return way later you have zero recollection of doing either? No? Just me then. Mind like a steel colander.

splat: yes, many times. Sometimes I'll take a quiz that I have no recollection of ever taking before, scroll down ready to leave a comment, and then see that I left the same comment five years ago.

He would wake up with a hundred ideas. Of them ninety-five were dangerous; three more had to be rejected; the remaining two, however, were brilliant.

It's to help you on the "Parties of all the Prime Ministers of Israel" quiz. ;) I'd never heard of any of these except Labor so it was interesting to me.

I disagree, I was only missing 1 when I got through, saw the Mapai party, and immediately knew who I was missing.

Am from the UK and got 6, with a couple of near misses - which just goes to show how prominent a place Israel has in the news. I doubt very much that I could name any PMs from Belgium, Holland and Norway combined and they are all very close neighbours with comparable/bigger populations.

Sorry but to my shame the only Scandinavian politicians I can name would be Dag Hammarskjold and Olaf Palme (unless you count Quisling - which I suppose you should).

Did Allon get dropped from this quiz in a reset? I get that he was only acting PM for a month or so, but I'd still include him.

I think we can all agree Sharett is the most boring and least significant one here and barely even deserves to be considered a Prime Minister and is a total waste of space and... and... and...

(Guess which one I missed)

The answer to Jacktheguy's question is: Because Jews have been kicked out of (or slaughtered in) every country to which they have immigrated since the second time they were kicked out of their original homeland, in which they had lived for 1,200 years before the birth of Muhammad. Therefore, they finally came home and started over.

There are many, of course, who insist the Jews are the only people in the world who don't deserve what absolutely everyone else deserves - a home where they won't be othered or second-classed. But these Nazi-types who endorse genocide are not to be listened to by reasonable humanitarians.
