Ha'Aretz News Flash, 22:47 :
Netanyahu considering distributing land instead of financial compensation to those who complete IDF service.
Wasn't that what the Roman Empire did, rewarding its army veterans with plots of land, thus both providing them with a livelihood and having them assist in the colonization of parts of the empire? Is there so much land available for give-aways within Israel proper? Shouldn't our finance minister first think about ways to make sure that Israel will stop taking first place among industrialized countries when it comes to the percentage of children living below the poverty line? Each case of a child in Israel who is deprived of proper nutrition, education and living conditions is a disgrace of which all Zionists in the world ought to be ashamed.
