After decades of repeating the same old mantras, Israeli leaders are loosing their grip on the people. The Israeli commn man really wants to believe it isn`t the fault of his own leaders that makes his state so insecure, he really wants to believe that Palestinians owe their ratched poverty and imprisonment to themselves, he really wants to believe that his leaders aren`t corrupt, only a bit machoo so now and then, nothing special. But when the Syrian leader askes for six times within 2 months to start peace talks and Olmert persistenly refuses them all, and when the president of the state is so heavily suspected of sexual assault, when the IDF invades and bombs the south of Lebanon and fails completely, when 1 milion unexploded cluster bombs are waiting to kill south lebanese children, when this explicit racist party is about to join the government.. then the evidence is too strong: something is very rotten with the way Israel is managed.
