    And I agree that we are lead by professional fearmongers. Bibi learned his art from the almost dead Sharon, honed it during his 1st time in office and now uses it with great skill. BUT, it's a two way process - like the 2 state solution - it requires both parties to work together. So we the people are partners with Bibi, because we condone his fear spin. "Condone" because we don't seem to be out on the streets clamouring for the 2 state solution we're all supposed to recognise is the only way forward for us. It is one of the great paradoxes of a paradoxical people, that we buy Bibi's paranoia package whilst simultaneously saying that our political class is corrupt. Perhaps when we wake up and see that the package is wrong and demand accountability from our politicians, we'll end this nationalist phase. I fear it's going to be along one.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
