A Roman bivouac, even if lasts 200 years, is still a bivouac. Ceasaria lies on the coastal plain, midway between Tel Aviv and Haifa. A ruined Roman viaduct serves as shade for local beachgoers. A boombox blasts distorted Beatles music. The old ruins are hemmed in by upscale gated communities indistinguishable from Indian Wells. Netanyahu has his personal residence here. If he’s channeling the ghost of Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect in charge from 26 – 36 AD, he’s not spendinglavishly enough.
“Expenditure on Netanyahu's personal home in Caesarea (as opposed to the official residence in Jerusalem) was NIS 183,000 in 2013, sharply down from NIS 318,000 in 2012, and comparable with NIS 184,000 in 2011.”
What a piker.
