Is Israel Falling Apart?

This passes for analysis? That a nation has political corruption is hardly the basis on which to come to the conclusion that it is falling apart. Take a closer look and you see at the problems are being policed, prosecuted, and rooted out by the system. Now take a look at what is happening in the U.S. (U.S. attorney scandal, Iraq war, New Orleans) and you can begin to worry about us.

Foreign observers of Israel tend to focus so intently on the dangers the country faces from its Arab neighbours that they have largely missed an astonishing story that has been accelerating over the past few months: that of the Jewish state’s possible move toward internal collapse.
There certainly has never been such a deep crisis of leadership in the country that touts itself as the only democracy in the Middle East.
