I looked at the MinJust FB page and was surprised to see his favorite book was the Bible. I am not making it up. While he lists his favorite book as the bible his favorite music is Alternative, Latin, Classical, and Classic Rock and his favorite movie, The Matrix.
I had to laugh. The man has eclectic taste.
The crisis in POR, the MinJust press-conference denouncing the MinInfra as insubordinate, booting her out of the party, her long meeting with the Governor, the Governor’s obvious endorsement of her continued service, Nel Oduber’s quick condemnation, siding with POR and its right to nominate whoever to the minister’s position, the MinPres quick distancing from the polemics as internal disputes, then the bao palo Hooiberg press-conference the following day, confirming the MinInfra’s feisty, gutsy determination to keep doing what she does, the media survey, proving people are behind her, wishing her to remain in office, and the mea culpa note from POR the following day in which the party states it is ready for mediation…. only strengthened the MinInfra’s position.
She came out of the crisis ten times stronger.
It reminded me a story, the MinJust must remember, if his favorite book is the Bible.
Balaam who was paid to curse the descends of Jacob, found himself blessing them instead, as he realized they were walking with god.
Numbers 23:11: And Balak said unto Balaam, what hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether.
I see the similarities, he was sent to curse and ended up blessing.
We could conclude that the MinJust did the MinInfra a huge favor. Where we were indifferent before, we now stand behind her, as a woman and a fierce, no holds barred politician.
