In order to be a supporter of Israels right wing (95% or the nation), you must have the capacity to believe anything, with no reservations. It could be a form of self hypnosis. At any rate, it allows them to say the most outrageous things without raising an eyebrow or cracking a smile. In fact, they get downright hostile when nobody else believes them except other like minded Israelis. The main problem in Israel is that people are so far removed from reality that they think that things are made true or false simply by them making some self serving statement. It used to be irritating to observe this common phenomenon, but now it is only sad and pathetic. Lieberman would be much better suited as the minister for stupid remarks.
