Suddenly it is discovered that for years the firefighting services have been ignored and underfunded. If this has been going on for a long time, then why has the press not discovered it, investigated and informed the public? If it has been going on since the Second Lebanon War, then EVERY major party has been involved in allowing it to happen. The press in Israel is full of what serves the government politically, punctuated by drawn out coverage as the police and prosecutors delay bring politicians to justice. Yet the national firefighting services are allowed to deteriorate without anyone noticing. How much political and press incompetence and corruption may a small nation survive?
