- As you certainly know, "Maariv" is a popular
Hebrew language newspaper in Israel. On the other hand, the "Magyar
Nemzet" is the main oppositional (conservative) newspaper in Hungary.
Last Saturday, the Hungarian newspaper had the guts to publish a few lines
( http://www.mno.hu/portal/522600?searchtext=Peresz) on a recent "Maariv"
article which was about the October 10th Tel-Aviv speech of Israeli President
Shimon Peres in a business circle. The Hungarian article quotes Peres as
saying (Hungarian translation from Hebrew by the newspaper and transled
by myself from Hungarian to English):
- "Israel is getting through the economical crisis,
a war as well as the withdrawal from Gaza and is reaching now an exceptional
economic performance. The Israeli economy is flourishing. (...) It is possible
to found empires today without settling colonies and using the military.
Look at how big an empire has built Bill Gates without the use of police
and military, see what a big power he represents today. Contrasting with
this, governments are unable to use their power since, even if they make
projects, they have no money to realise them. Thus, governments are limited
in their functioning while the private companies have no such limits. Israeli
businessmen invest in the whole world, the Israeli economy was never so
successful, we have conquered our economical sovereignty, presently we
are buying out Manhattan, Poland and Hungary."
- Maybe the Americans should know about this because, if
we believe Peres, Israel doesn't need any more the US tax payers' money...
