I don't pretend to know the whole story here, --there appears to be a question of lying -- but I fail to see what the problem with a discount is. My word, the Holiday in down 4 blocks from my office gives a 15% discount for people who run businesses in the town. We have routine senior citizen discounts here in the US; just show your AARP card and you can get discounts on everything from prescription glasses to medications, to taxi rides... On the sole issue of discounts, hasn't Israel got enough to be up in arms over without this non-issue??
