PM Yitzhak Rabin on 'Yihyeh B'seder' ["it will be OK"].

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin on 'Yihyeh B'seder' ["it will be OK"].

"One of our painful problems has a name.

A given name and a surname.

It is the combination of two words - 'Yihyeh B'seder' ["it will be OK"].

This combination of words, which many voice in the day to day life of the
State of Israel, is unbearable.

Behind these two words is generally hidden everything which is not OK.

The arrogance and sense of self confidence, strength and power which has no
place.

The 'Yihyeh B'seder' has accompanied us already for a long time. For many
years. And it is the hallmark of an atmosphere that borders on
irresponsibility in many areas of our lives.

The 'Yihyeh B'seder', that same friendly slap on the shoulder, that wink,
that 'count on me', is the hallmark of the lack of order; a lack of
discipline and an absence of professionalism; the presence of negligence; an
atmosphere of covering up; which to my great sorrow is the legacy of many
public bodies in Israel - not just the IDF.

It is devouring us.

And we have already learned the hard and painful way that 'Yihyeh B'seder'
means that very much is not OK."

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin warning remarks to the IDF Staff and Command
School - August 1992

Rebroadcast on Kol Yisrael 9 October, 1995
