Eretz Yisrael Time

To be honest, I haven’t been following the news lately. I’ve been busy, and it’s not too often I hear anything that surprises me anymore.

I don’t know the details, and you can read it for yourselves in all the newspapers, but it appears that tens of people from the top down in the Israeli Tax Authority (and connected to various members of Knesset and the government) have been giving and taking bribes for tax breaks and the like.

That’s not surprising though. We all know it happens, just like we all know Olmert is as corrupt as the Sharon family.

What is surprising is that some of the big guys are actually being arrested and being taken down.

Now that’s unusual.

Of course, things like that don’t just happen without a reason. Obviously someone decided that someone else needed to be hurt or taught a lesson, or to cause or prevent some sort of political fall out.

Who’s behind this?

I couldn’t even begin to guess, but with so many important and connected people being taken down, I bet they regret not inviting whoever it is to the Thursday night poker game with all the rest of the boys.
