(LONDON) - Israeli press reported today that 12% of Israelis paid a bribe in the past year, and political parties and religious organizations are perceived as Israel's most corrupt public institutions, according to the Global Corruption Barometer 2013 published today by Transparency International.

12% of the respondents said that they paid a bribe in the past year. Almost one in ten Israelis (9%) who came in contact with government real estate services said that they paid a bribe.

In ‘the only democracy in the Middle East’, 89% of the population believe that personal connections or the use of power are essential for promoting their interests vis-à-vis the authorities. This is the highest percentage of all the countries covered by the Global Corruption Barometer; the global average is 63%.

Considering Israel being The Jewish State, we are entitled to assume that the above statistics tells us something about Jewish culture and politics. It certainly helps us to grasp the Jewish Lobby’s operational mode. Money makes the world go round and AIPAC, CFI and CRIF know it too well.
