Israel is a country currently ruled by a collusion of religious courts and a military junta, both of which are fielding hapless disempowered politicians, who'll bend like willows to their will. The rest is pretense and fairy tales. The corruption that follows is a natural consequence of the religious-military marriage of convenience where the two interest groups divide up the country's governance by spheres of influence. The victims in all the horse trading that's going on between the junta and the mullahs are democracy and morality. Rampant corruption and laws designed to discriminate against the natives highlight the twin principles of parochialism and nationalism masquerading under Jewish majority "Crow's Laws". Both classes agree on one thing - racism against Arabs can always be justified - couched in the language of security and/or jewish might-makes-right. Against this backdrop dispossession of a few shepherds are but minor blips on a screen. That's the Levant for you.
