    The Israeli politician is a strange creature. The Israeli politician doesn't serve the people of Israel. The Israeli politician believes that when he is elected to public office his first and overriding duty is to serve himself. In a vain attempt to go down in History compared with ben gurion or in Netanyahu's case Golda Mier, he is desperate to be a wartime Prime Minister. So he can impress daddy having lived in the shadow of his brother's memory all his life. Hence the current coalition government in Israel with naughty chair diplomacy and negotiations which strategy is based based on a door at a nightclub in Moldova on a Saturday night. Netanyahu is not looking for solutions for the longterm security of Israel. Israel is looking for solutions which secure the longterm security of Netanyahu. Hence the fact that he lurches from one crisis to the next at the helm of a ship without a rudder. Remember it's all about Bibi Israelis either are to dumb or are sick to death of the whole shambles and have disengaged from the day to day politics of israel and are merely ensuring that they have the second passport so when necessary they can leave. That is the reality of israel today
