Did you have some of your precious time to watch The Olympic Games 2012, that wonderful celebration of human athletic ability? Where is the Israeli athletic youth positioned in it by its achievements? It is on the bottom of the list of the achievements which otherwise request a great deal of physical and mental stamina coming from hard work. Do you monitor, in your capacity of the indisputable leaders of the country and the Knesset grand coalition so called PISA competition, a Programme for International Student Assessment of 15-year-old school pupils' scholastic performance on mathematics, science, and reading? Where is the Israeli youth positioned in it by its achievements among all that diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural spectrum of the world youngsters from developed and undeveloped countries as well? It is also on the bottom of the list of the achievements although both athletic and intellectual ability increase war performing capability for certain. It seems that you do not mind for the competitive failures of the Israeli youth or, alternatively, you are detached from the real life country’s reality and do not see these failures as a problem at all. I must say I am so happy that your personal stars are shining high in the heavens but I am simultaneously more than desperate when seeing what you and similar of you, supported by well paid chorus of your servants in the press and TV, are doing to this beautiful country and its people by your messianic and warmongering activities and, by doing so, you are knowingly diverting peoples attention from the many real life vital problems, including horrible social injustice, that must be fixed if Israel aims not to become III world country.
