    Yes, some Jews are criminals and, being criminals, they're very much into "feathering their own nests". From "some" Jews you immediately generalise that "all" Jews do that. Of course, Arabs never do that sort of thing. "Bakhshish" is simply a made up institution, clearly something that Zionists imposed in the Arab world. When Yasir Arafat pocketed 6 billion Euros, originally intended for his own ìmpoverished people, and put it into his private Swiss bank account, he wasn't "feathering his nest" but making sound investments for the future. His "widow" is doubtless carrying on with that investment and will bring it back to the people at the most opportune time. In the meantime, Fatah officials can drive around in the expensive cars, wearing expensive clothes and jewellry while their Hamas counterparts will be pouring what little money they have into Katyushas and suicide-bomb kits. Time the Arabs looked at themselves in the mirror and stopped projecting their own flaws onto the "Jews".

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.
