    "So trading private information online in exchange for a nice discount? Most Israelis wouldn’t hesitate." The PRISM program is indiscriminate authoritarian spying on its own citizens. It's not a trade for a discount, which any good Israeli would take. There is something very frightening about what's happened in the US and you shouldn't treat it so glibly. I like to believe that Israelis are ok with having their bags searched, but would draw the line at the government spying on everyone, potentially to control you. Our fellow Russians who have joined us in the land know VERY WELL that there is NOTHING innocent about your government reading all of your papers. I like to think in Israel, despite the fact that the government spies on Palestinians, that the Israeli population would stand up and tell these guys off if it was revealed they're dong what the US is doing to it citizens. There is no need for that here.
