    Unlike what we are fed in the media, Israel is not in an existential fight. Why don`t we hear that Ahmedinijad has lost the support of his people and government? That his antics and histrionics are meaningless and rejected even by his own people? We are not told of these facts because we are meant to constantly live in a state of fear. How else can we be distracted from the dirty dealings of Mr. Olmert and the other dirty politicians? If we have no reason to be fearful, the military industrial complex (yes it exists here too) loses its footing and the tool Olmert loses his customers and financiers. It amazes me in that even in the cynical age in which we live most people are still largely unaware. If it's on TV and in the papers, well, then it must be true. Right? Wrong. Those are simply the tools used to very carefully manipulate our consciousness. The real problem is that while we are distracted with the bablings of an tiny Persian man, our leaders make out like bandits
