The disintegration of Israel's political structure

We have the wrong politicians: Gone are the times when politicians worked on the basis of 'my country before me'.

A typical debate in the Knesset

Hear: How Israel tears itself apart from the inside. Instead of unity there is division. Personal ego and insults are the order of the day. Gone are the times when politicians worked on the basis of 'my country before me'. Now it's reversed. Demonstrated by the Knesset Members' pay raise, and Netanyahu's immunity application. All that while, according to the OECD, we have the highest poverty numbers among all their members. Yet according to Jewish law, we must even feed our animals before ourselves.

All that: Brilliantly summed up by one of the greatest Jewish minds of our time.

Walter predicts: A possible fourth election, unless we change the electoral system to a democratic one. The present one has delegates from parties, not representatives of the people.

How: To deal with Iran in light of the shooting down of a civilian airliner.

More: About the non-Jewish Jews from the former Soviet Union and the Law of Return.

Also: The outdated British Royal reality show.

Plus: Two "must hear" good news stories. About Shalom Bayis, how to keep a happy home and how a neshama in the wilderness found its way home.
