I knew of course, that there were people protesting that we shouldn’t export our natural gas (I don’t want to hurt their democratic enthusiasm, but they should know that there isn’t any megaphone that can be heard in a cabinet meeting)
This is a translated excerpt from a Facebook status post by Israel’s Secretary of Finance, Yair Lapid.
What is he saying exactly? That it’s not worth protesting when a politician fails to be true to his promises? That we, as citizens, shouldn’t bother voice our discontent when the government sells the country’s limited natural resources for cheap, without proper discussion in parliament?
