    israelis are wonderful....wanting it both ways. they look for spirituality and succumb to the most desensitizing and sometimes degrading activities and life styles.Corporations love money and profit and at the same time risk income by caring very little for the portions of the masses they serve. Politicians..... well, at least they are consistent and just serve their own interests.Ms. Bar Refaeli may have outer, surface charm, but many people see her as a dumb blond capable of not doing much more that giving some of the population something to gaze at and perhaps fantasize with. At the same time, many don't feel the need to have oversized, underdressed women looking down on us- she & her sponsor do invade our right to avoid seeing G-ds creatures in this state. Desensitized people out there cannot understand this & will tout their religious (hellinism) beliefs of beauty/democracy& of course anti-Jewish babble.The key message is to keep this woman where she belongs- not on the street.
