    Yair, you really did it. Not even in the New York Times would find these samemanim of Yellow Journalism on their pages! You have to trash with inuendos and derisive jibes at the "enemies of the people". Did you know that in many EU nations university education is heavily subsidized by the government and anyone who has the potential, no matter what socio-economic level they are, they pay next to nothing to study?! We, however, follow the example of the greatest Banana Republic in the World, the USA, and charge tuition so our students will learn to "value" their education, of course. The Yeshiva students get a stipend of a thousand or so NIS a month, married students with large families, a thousand and so and no more, even less than what Havtachat Hakhnasah provides for singles, well, well . . . we can't let that little detail interfere with your bar room eloquence. Only in Israel does talking like a pushtak on the railing of the neighborhood streetcorners pass for journalism!

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
