Israel's Ministry for Silly Ministries

Richard Kuper has just posted an article by Azmi Bishara to the Just Peace UK list. It's in al-Ahram and it's about Israel's political system which brings Bishara to this comment on the new Ministry for Strategic Threats:
Only in Israel could such a thing be created. This is a country that has not yet appointed a minister of social affairs, but after coalition negotiations now has a Ministry of Strategic Threats. Perhaps in the future we will see the Security Fears Ministry, the Demographic Threat Ministry, the Non-Recognition of Israel Ministry, the World Is Against Us Ministry, the Chosen People Ministry, or the Ministry of Greater Israel.
I thought they had all those already.
