    However, you have an entire generation of politicians in Israel whose entire career has been based on peddling fear. As a career in Politics is a very lucrative money spinning scam I cannot see this happening anytime soon. The 'Vote for me I will keep you safe' slogan is very easy to fulfill if there is no real threat apart from the one a politician creates. The 'Vote for me I'll give you a job, free health care' is a bit harder to fulfill. It is like people claiming London is Londonistan when a person I can't mention is there safe. Or Israel's elite are queuing up to live there as it is safe. They peddle fear and hatred because they have no ideas on how to improve the lives of the people. So they keep Israelis scared and therefore malleable. They make up threats so as to justify military spending, They make up threats to ensure money from the United States to keep the economy afloat. It's all a money making scam
