Obituary for “Medinat Israel”

In sorrow and grief we announced the passing of our beloved State of Israel which was murdered by wicked gold-diggers who only sought power, men who would fight and argue. Those who destroyed you came from within you.”

This is what one Israeli resident wrote as a death notice, mourning the fate to which the nation has fallen.

“In sorrow and grief we announce the passing of our beloved State of Israel,” read the obituary published in Ha’aretz newspaper Tuesday with his angry and final attempt to bring about a change.

Shmuel Gonen, a 60-year-old resident of Kiryat Ono, described the nation as a “banana republic.” Gonen expressed his disappointment with the lack of accountability as the country’s leaders stand trial for one thing or another.

“The government offices are like ping-pong tables; ministers don’t last more than three-four months in office, nothing can be done at this rate. There are Knesset members who act like they are in the circus.”

The “wicked gold-diggers” Gonen referred to in the notice are no other than the State’s leaders.

“If there are income tax heads being prosecuted, if there are serious investigations within the police, if the prime minister and the State comptroller are at war and the prime minister and the defense minister are barely talking – how can a country be run like this?” he wondered.

Gonen also strongly criticized Israelis who complain, but don’t do anything to try and change the situation.

“I don’t want to sound like someone who is grieving the establishment of the State of Israel, the State is strong and we have been through a lot of suffering, but it is a pity that pure blood is spilled in wars and road accidents. There are people who give their souls and spirits, and there are low-lifes running the State,” he concluded.
