Our political oligarch – Israel Opinion, Ynetnews

Our foreign minister. Avigdor Lieberman, is sitting somewhere today, alone or with friends, laughing, and laughing and laughing. The Israelis, such suckers, again bought it hook, line and sinker. Chef Lieberman is probably preparing another such concoction as we speak: If you want to buy into it, you deserve it.

Lieberman has been able to decipher the secret of Israeli politics years ago: A majority among our population is emotional and clings to the past and to primordial fears entrenched in us. This population group doesn’t have the time or desire to think: One can hurl a word or two in its direction as bait, it “eats up,” and is caught. Now, it’s time to move on to the next fish.

Back in the election campaign he managed for Benjamin Netanyahu in the 1990s, Lieberman learned that two or three words or an idea that provokes fears can get the job done: The “Peres will divide Jerusalem” slogan found its way to the street, and it was no longer possible to find the source of this claim.
