Midrash says angels were running up and down on Jacob himself, in order to see whether the upper Jacob, the one created like everybody else in divine image, corresponded to the incarnated version, sleeping lonely in the open fields of Luz. One of these angels, a sad and end enlighted one, is Yossi Sarid. He runs up and down Israel (Jacob's name 20 years after the ladder night) to see whether our ideals and self-image corresponds to our actual being. And while some aspects of Jacob are like Finland and Japan, others indeed are like Zambia and Zimbabwe. Jacob too was a human being of paradoxes, contradictions, both resolute and irresolute, just like Ben Gurion's airport, with beautiful new architecture and design, and just one runway which a simple English fog leaves totally useless, without any Iranian medium-range missile fired from anywhere. That's what happens when the country is governed by people like Eli Yishai, Shaul Mofaz, Fuad Ben-Eliezer and all the others.
