Transparency International Poll

Transparency International Poll - Knesset is ranked second-most corrupt institution; Israelis think government efforts to fight corruption are not helpful.

Transparency International - Israel released a poll on Thursday, which showed that Israelis think that political parties are the most corrupt institution in the country.

Nearly 90 percent of Israelis said that parties were corrupt, giving them a score of 4.5 out of five possible corruption points. The Knesset was ranked as the second-most corrupt institution, with a score of four. The IDF was in last place, with 2.6 out of five points.

The report also showed that Israeli citizens believe the country in general is not particularly corrupt, giving it a score of 3 out of 10, but Transparency International's experts gave Israel six out of 10 points for corruption.

According to the poll, 82% think that the government's efforts to fight corruption are not helpful. Israel is tied with Ireland for the highest rating amongst OECD countries polled. Luxemburg received the highest percentage (68%) of support for anti-corruption legislation.

In the organization's Global Corruption Barometer, Israel was ranked in the lowest category for bribery, along with the US, UK, and Germany, with less than six percent of respondents saying they had paid a bribe "to receive attention from...different service providers in the past 12 months." According to the poll, The police are the institution who most often received bribes worldwide.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
