    Since Israel was given independence, the Israelis have worked hard to get rid of all nature in their country, They polutted their rivers, destroyed forests and quarried anything they could put their hands on. Strange, considering the words of love for the country they speak, after praying for 2000 years, after having been given the unique chance of building their Land. the 'Land of Isreal', but wants you get there, to be so destructive of that land... considering the cruel wars they needed to fight for its defense, the many innocent lives destroyed, at least you would expect them to take care of it, no? Especially in Israel, you might expect the toughest nature protection laws anywhere, but it is the complete opposite! Especially the religious Jews you would expect them to be tough in taking care of the Land that was given to them by G-d, no? Is this the way you treat something the Almighty gave you? How can Israelis convince themselves they love a country while destroying their nature so willingly?? Israel was a beautiful land, ask anyone older then 40. Still, if I see photos or films of Israel up to the 1970s, I get happy and dreamy, and then I understand why an Israeli was willing to risk his life to defend it. But now, what is left? not much, it makes me sad.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, February 16, 2016.

If Merkel also criticizes Israel, life is not a piece of cremeschnitte

The Israeli reaction to Der Spiegel's report on the German chancellor's frustration with Netanyahu was ridiculous, even Orwellian; as if Israelis were aliens who had just landed from another planet.
