Israel: The real corruption

Gideon Levy جدعون ليفي גדעון לוי

 

Politicians are charlatans, the sun rises in the east; politicians are false, some more than others. That’s the norm, that’s how it must be

The real corruption is that we’ve been led to believe that politics has different rules, that lying is forbidden in life but permitted in politics. That in life it pays to tell the truth, but not in politics. We’ve gotten used to thinking there is no politics without trickery and no politician who tells the truth, that that’s the way of the world.

Politicians are charlatans, the sun rises in the east; politicians are false, some more than others. That’s the norm, that’s how it must be. It’s difficult to believe: We place our fates in the hands of the people we trust the least, and we’re all right with that. That is the greatest corruption.

They were raised on the lies of Israel’s rotten politics. Is there anyone in the media who isn’t aware of the unbearable disparity between what the politicians say to the camera and what they say when the camera is turned off? We’ve learned to live with it. No one stopped them from lying, no one confronted them with their lies. It’s journalism that nods at each of their hollow statements. No one rewards them for being honest, deceit pays.
