Israel must begin to build a more solid political state, it is as corrupt as the neighbouring Arab states, the only difference being that it has a free society. Quarrelling political factions fight with a boyish petulance whilst they send into battle soldiers who are under equipped. Israel must begin to build a political system that serves its people, the days of leading a nation into war where so much destruction is achieved for very little gain must draw to an end. Israel must mature as a nation state and be lead by a new younger generation who do not fill their own pockets from the public purse. Ben Gurion is the past, bury his memory in the history books and venerate a more positive future, and for Gods sake don't bring back Netenyahu.
