Ben Eliezer: We have no money, we have problems, but we have spirit

"Starting today, we are preparing for elections, " Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said Friday at a Labor conference in Tel Aviv. "We have no money, we have problems at our branches, but one thing cannot be taken away from us - our spirit and our energy," Ben-Eliezer told the crowd of some 200 Labor activists and MKs. "We must prepare for elections and win. I know the people here and thousands more on the streets, and we will do it in a big way." The infrastructures minister went on to say that the problem with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was "public, not legal." "I want a prime minister with 100 percent attentiveness to our security problems who will not be dealing with personal matters," said Ben Eliezer.
