The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 0 comments
Sorry guys, you could tell that system was cracking when the money from Germany arrived. In some kibbutzim there was an honor system, and in others, they either had to declare it, or leave. The honor system didn't always work, and when somebody was discovered using thier money for "private purposes" it was one of things that was shushed up. Later, with prosperity . . . and then came the kibbutz that got lost a bundle on investments in the stock market. By that time, too, the idea of Avodah Aztmit was losing ground. Of course, wachagonnado when the kibbutz is just over the fence from, say, Herzlia, or Acco. It is a kibbutz or another neighborhood of the city that hugs it? Did I mention the kibbutzim that told its volunteers to stay away from their young people lest they infulence them in their "foreign customs". Ah, but then the private clubs were so profitable, weren't they? Sorry guys, maybe there are a few places where the old "collective" rules haven't died out. By now, they might as well be plain old villages where everybody lives their own lives in a neighborly fashion, like the rest of Israel.
