Simply put we are a simple people who will follow anyone who decries peace. The problem is with the spelling. Olmert's version of peace is actually "piece" where he and his buddies take the majority. Corruption is evidenced in all sectors, courts, media, financial. We have this naive preception that there is "nothing we can do" and "everyone does it". It has become a way of life. How else is it possible for regualar people to go into politics and come out millionairs? Corrupt leaders appoint corrupt courts to deal with corrupt special interest groups. The formula continues as there is just too much money involved. Olmert and group are an embarrassment and worse, they have not only stolen money, but they continue to steal our freedoms!!! We must act now! But the system is just too ingrained.
