Not quite as Shtrassler puts it. They came back wealthy (no problem) and the proceeded to use their wealth in Israel. They bought the monopoly refinery from the govt. at a greatly reduced price, less than half of its worth. Within 24 hours of their purchase the share price was more than doubled. Of course, no one asks why the govt. should sell a monopoly; privatization is god. Actually, they should have been given a 10 year lease; no more. And then there is the case of the phosphates in the region of Arad. Ofer money has prevented the people in the govt. from giving the people of Arad a fair hearing. I would not live in Arad and the govt. seems not to care how detrimental to the population there would such a mining operation be. In Hebrew it is "ha kesher bain hon veshilton", wealth rules in Israel. The govt. is corrupt. I don't care how wealthy the Ofer brothers are. Let them keep and enjoy their wealth, but we don't have to let them run (= run down) our country.
