It surprises me to no extent that Israel is starting to look like the Jewish commonwealth of 2000 years ago. Jerusalem is corrupt, its "holy men" dressed nicely just being a bunch of fat crooks, the nation is into idolatry (adopted Hellenism) and seemingly doesn't care and only the few are trying to fight for the common good for the entire people. Frankly, I'm not religious, but I think the lessons of the past which in Jewish stories take a religious tone teach us more about human behavior then religion; and it seem nothing has changed. Go us! God is so proud, like always...
