    Israel, like America, has become a nation dominated by the right. And everyone on the right understands that those worthy of education, the wealthy, can pay for that education and those unworthy, those too poor to pay, do not deserve an education. Education has nothing to do with advancing the nation to those who's only concern is advancing the rule of the rich. The rich can educate their children. And anyone who is not rich does not - indeed it is dangerous to educate them - an education. Only a newspaper who did not understand who holds power, what their goals were, and what would happen if they were thwarted by education of low lift scum, would have made the mistake of publishing this article. Bibi attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ehud Barak attended Standford. They got their educations because of money, and have nothing but contempt for those who might need to get their education because it would benefit the nation, Conservatives hate educating the rabble.
