  1. This post is going to have an affect…. eventually! The on-going corruption within the state is its true Achilles heal.

    1. How true but sad, this madness and greed cannot end well but for now the Israeli public simply does not want to know.What will be the painful catalyst for the day of reckoning.

  2. “Further, I’m leery of Israelis who divorce their political analysis from the Occupation. This is the ultimate corruption in Israeli society and it underpins much of the worst that is happening inside that country.”…..
    ……….Essentially true

    “For many, it is easier to focus on the domestic agenda and the fate of Israel’s Jewish citizens. But those who do this leave out half the sky.”……..not exactly Sir, because focusing on the domestic agenda and the fate of Israel’s Jewish citizens may be the best way to show to those same citizens, who form a majority within Israel, that the chickens have come home to roost.

  3. RE: “None of the major newspapers were willing to accept political advertising (Yediot, Maariv, Yisrael HaYom). The only outlets that would were Mako and The Marker. This bears out Yaniv’s claim that the Israeli media do the bidding of the oligarchs at the expense of the interests of Israeli society.” ~ R.S.

    SEE: “Israel’s Weird Elections”, by Uri Avnery, Counterpunch, 1/04/13:

    [EXCERPT]. . . The Israeli media are already to a large extent neutralized, a creeping process not unsimilar to what the Germans used to call Gleichschaltung. [ Gleichschaltung @ Wikipedia – J.L.D. ]
    All three TV channels are more or less bankrupt and dependent on government handouts. Their editors are practically government appointees. The printed press is also teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, except the largest “news” paper, which belongs to Sheldon Adelson and is a Netanyahu propaganda sheet, distributed gratis. [Naftali] Bennett repeats the ridiculous assertion that almost all journalists are left-wingers (meaning traitors.) He promises to put an end to this intolerable situation.
    Bennett assertions are only slightly more extreme that those of the Likud and the religious parties.
    In the annual gathering of the heads of Israel’s diplomatic missions in the world, a very senior diplomat asked why the government had announced the building of a huge new settlement in East Jerusalem, a decision denounced throughout the world. The question was loudly applauded by the diplomats. Netanyahu’s spokesman, until recently the most senior Orthodox kippa-wearing army officer, curtly told the diplomats to resign if they have problems with government policy.
    A few weeks ago, the commanding general in the occupied West Bank decided to elevate the status of the college in the Ariel settlement to the rank of a university. It may be the only university in the world which was given its charter by an army general.
    There is, of course, not the slightest sign of democracy or human rights in the occupied territories. The Likud threatens to cut off international funding to all the NGOs which try to monitor what is happening there.
    Does this process of de-democratization evoke a furious debate in these elections? Not at all, just a few feeble protests.
    The issue is not a vote-catcher. . .
