First let us see all what is shown in the piece is correct: How much a room costs for a regular person does not mean the hotels charge the same the Defence Ministry. Every body is aware that there is a big difference for frequent customer and/or big group prices. If the Defence Ministry sends many people a year to hotels it is only natural that they will not pay the prices mentioned in the article. Sometimes the discount for large, loyal groups may come even to 60 % of the regular price and the hotels do not lose money. Trust me! Any arithmetics based on the prices quoted will be entirely meaningless! Secondly Mossad and the IDF is doing a difficult job and they also deserve some vacation. Assuming the 100 million NIS quoted here is correct, which in my view isn't, then a better measure of the cost would be to divide the sum to the number of personelle enjoying the perk.
