    There will be no change in government conduct what so ever, if we don't change the system. We need direct elections of all government officials. We can't allow the current party electoral system remain. It is corrupt to the bone. The MK's must be accountable to the people. But now they are only accountable to the Party. Hence all the corruption, of Omert, Negbe, etc. The media MUST push this process. It needs to be constantly discussed in all the newspapers, on TV, Radio, etc. Also The IDF is a closed boys club of overpaid, over pensioned armchair general who are more interested in their own financial gain than Israel's security. Generals, lt. generals become commanders, become IDF chief of General Staff, then leave the IDF for the political battlefield of Labor, Likud, Kadima or others. THE SYSTEM MUST BE CHANGED !!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF THE HAARETZ IS SERIOUS ABOUT CHANGE, LETS HAVE A ONGOING WEEKLY DISCUSSION FOR CHANGING THE SYSTEM.
