It seems that politicians don't mind what falsehoods they utter so long as it suits their own agenda. Not so long ago Obama spoke at the UN in support of 2-states with the border based on the 49 armistice line - green line - with negotiated land swaps. It is now common knowledge how Bibi deliberately misquoted what he said. The Soviet Union's "cautious approach" to democracy would probably find what Bibi did acceptable and with Russian Jews rising to the top of the political ladder, it is not suprising if Kremlin-style politics become the order of the day in Israel.
