Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 10 comments
It's incredible that this is happening at a time when we are at our economically most stable, and our regional status is entirely different from that of the Lavon scandal. Yet we face implosion and instability politically. Of course there should be a root and branch clear out both of the IDF leadership and the political leadership. They are deeply tainted and pose a much graver threat to this nation than any flotilla, fundamentalist terrorists, imagined Iranian nuclear sabre rattling. BUT it all depends on us - we the people who are the nation and the electors and those who serve in the IDF. If we the people are ready to sell our moral values and our civic responsibility for material comfort and behave like the Simple Son at Pesach - what is all this to me? - then we allow this deep corrosion to eat away at what remains of the foundations of our state. We need to take back Israel and provide our state with a viable future. It really is up to us.
