We know the value of real leadership;
the opposite of the Altalena bleeder ship.

Governor of the Bank of Israel Fischer said
in his last speech as the top bank head;
status quo with the religious; and in 20 to 40 years then…
Israel will not be a country with peace or Zen.

Real leadership takes the pain out of the society equation
avoiding everything from draft evasion to tax evasion.

Fischer didn’t mention army draft or Knesset graft;
just the Haredi importance of skills and craft.

How about switching to a strong professional army;
making everyone draft-equal for the entire ‘ami’.    *(Hebrew: My people)

Taking three years of technology from the pretty and young
when they instead could have in start-ups really sprung;
and more quickly joined the workforce as a strong player
making them pay lots of money as a good taxpayer
would make more sense instead of lots of army prayer
and thus, have the funds for a professional combat slayer.

Is Lapid and Liberman interested in consensus and solution?
It is a choice between ‘communis sensus’ or confusion.        *(Latin)
