There is chocolate chunks, cherries, and crunchy nuts. This of course is not advertised on the carton (no allergy info/nothing), obviously the world just assumes its just plain vanilla.

Shifra Chana I guess we needed a break, hence the ice cream humor.

But the more time goes by the more clear it seems that the government is imposing an extremely dangerous illusion on us once again. Were there rockets in the south? Some of your readers seem to have heard that there were. Did they find “all the tunnels?” How could they possibly know that? Is Hamas a terror organization that must be wiped out for good? Then how do we go to the negotiating table with them as if they are legitimate organization?

Can somebody please explain?

I don’t understand how 90% of people finally realized that Hamas needed to be completely destroyed–and yet as soon as Bibi did a complete about face and pulled all the troops out instead, we go back straight back to our everyday affairs.

Has the on again off again of this war exhausted all of us to the point where we don’t want to think about it any more? Were we exhausted on purpose so that we won’t interfere? What is going on around here?

Hila Gvar Haha, you guys are brilliant!! But, jokes aside, I’m not too optimistic about this whole thing, yet….

Lapid to Give Peres Extra 3.3 Mil. while Bibi Rebuked for Water Bill

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Once again, certain Israeli media outlets are attacking Prime Minister Netanyahu, this time for what they claim are exorbitant expenses for maintaining the Prime Minister’s homes where he entertains foreign officials.

According to Ha’aretz, the state spend NIS 2.97 million to maintain the official Jerusalem residence, NIS 312,000 for his Caesarea home, and NIS 4,561 for his Jerusalem home on Gaza street. Ha’aretz made a point to emphasize the Prime Minister’s water bill. Back in February they complained about how much ice cream his household ate.

The Prime Minister pointed out that the water bill was for 3 years, and besides family and official guests, Netanyahu has full time security details living at his residences.

On Monday, Yisrael Hayon published a tiny, easily overlooked article about another public figure who also seems to have an unusually large budget, President Shimon Peres.

The President currently has an astounding NIS 55.2 million shekel annual budget, according to Yisrael Hayom – and that doesn’t include his annual birthday party at Binyanei Hauma.

Some older reports state that Peres’s official budget in 2012 was NIS 62.7 million, up from NIS 42.5 million in 2011.

In that report, NIS 42 million went to maintaining the Presidential residence, including maintenance, security and staff, while another NIS 4.5 million were spent on flights abroad. You would think that Shimon Peres is a Foreign Minister with that amount of flying overseas.

Surprisingly, Finance Minister Lapid’s usually tight-fisted Ministry of Finance doesn’t think that this is enough money.

They’re recommending to the Knesset that an additional NIS 3.3 million be added onto the President’s annual budget to reach an astounding NIS 58.5 million for running President Peres’s household, and for what some have called his “shadow government”.

Over the weekend, a report in Makor Rishon said that Peres won’t be asking for an extension of his Presidential position which ends July 2014. Instead Peres believes he should be appointed as a “Super-Minister for Peace” in the current government.

Kosher Food Firms Rush to Introduce New Products

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Several kosher food manufacturers and distributors introduced new products in time for the Jewish holidays as part of an overall push to gain an edge over competitors. For some, the timing of the introduction was designed to coincide with what several termed “a period of time when you have the customer’s attention.”

In the major kosher markets, orthodox Jewish newspapers and magazines featured expanded editions full of ads by kosher food manufacturers and retailers. They included Klein’s Ice Cream, Shneider’s, Golden Taste (horseradish without vinegar during the sweet New Year and subsequent holy days), Norman’s (three new Greek Yogurt flavors), Lieber’s (new box drinks for children), Abe’s Pareve Ice Cream, Golden Flow (new fruit juice blends) and some of the regulars like Kedem.

Obama Golfs and Bibi Eats Ice Cream – How Much to Indulge Leaders?

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Personal expenses for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu soared 80 percent in the last year, according to figures that his office were forced to release after it ignored a formal request and acquiesced only after a petition for disclosure was filed in court.

The anti-Netanyahu Israeli press, which is just about all of the local media, jumped on the Prime Minister and his wife Sarah for freely spending the taxpayers’ money at a time when the government is carrying out austerity measures to reduce the budget deficit.

The attacks are somewhat populist, but that does not detract from the fact that some of the Netanyahus’ spending habits are from frugal.

However, compared with President Barack Obama, the Israeli expenditures are peanuts.

Of course, comparing the United States with Israel is like comparing Wyoming with New York, but there also is one other very basic difference: Israel loves to hang out its collective dirty laundry in full view of the public.

The Israeli society is nothing if not open. Thanks to the official list of expenditures, we now know that the Netanyahus spent approximately $40,000 for gardening last year at the family’s official home and two private residences.

Cosmetic and haircut and hairdo expense rose last year from $9,250 to nearly $18,000.

We don’t know how much the White House spent on keeping Obama and Michelle’s hair neat and prim, but you can bet your bottom shekel that $18,000 barely paid for a shave and after-shave.

In Israel, the principle often is more important than the principal, and the public indeed needs a leader who can be an example of a bit of modest spending at a time when the government wants to hike taxes and lower services to the public.

Netanyahu earlier this year was embarrassed by the disclosure that he asked for $2,700 to lap up ice cream, one of his weaknesses. He put a stop to his habit, at least not at the public’s expense.

Last week, he had to order a halt to the use of a special airplane bedroom that was installed for the price of $125,000 when he and his wife flew to Britain for the funeral of Margaret Thatcher. The special room will be removed, except for trans-Atlantic flights.

In the United States, President Obama has been has attacked for his costly habit of playing golf. His recent outing with Tiger Woods cost $78,000 just for security.

ABC’s Jonathan Karl asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney how much is spent for President Obama’s golf tours?

“Well, the president is the President of the United States,” Carney replied. “And he is elected to represent all of the people. And he travels around the country, appropriately. I don’t have a figure on the cost of presidential travel. It is obviously something, as every President deals with because of security and staff, a significant undertaking. But the President has to travel around the country. He has to travel around the world. That is part of his job.”

“How much does it cost for him to go and play golf?” Karl insisted.

Carney never answered the question.

The large outlay for political leaders’ quirks raises the question of how much they need to be pampered to keep from collapsing under the strain of public office.

“Bibi is king, and in a monarchy, when the king and queen fly, price is no object,” political commentator Sima Kadmon wrote in Israel’s Yediot Acharonot.

The president’s total impersonal expenditures are estimated at $1.4 billion a year, and that more or less is the same level of spending in the Bush administration.

But there is a limit, morally. Can Prime Minister Netanyahu function without so much ice cream, even without taking into account that he can do without the calories?

And does the White House really have to spend more than $250,000 a year on flowers, the figure that is an official government statistic?

Battering Netanyahu is popular and often justified, and the results are positive. Bedroom flights to Europe have been scrapped, and the ice cream budget has melted.

Now let’s see if Obama starts playing less golf.
