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.

I was the 2nd person to take it after resetting, so am happy with 5 points for 4/12. Not sure that'll last though.

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)

Yes. He left the Jewish Hope party in 2018. He is now representing the Yamina alliance, which currently only includes the New Right party.
