A deep dive into Israeli stamps

A deep dive into Israeli stamps

If you have been following the Israeli “submarine affair” scandal, in which leading businessman and officials close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are being implicated in corruption regarding a multibillion-dollar government contract to buy submarines from Germany, you may have been asking yourself: How do these new submarines fit into the history of Israel’s underwater navy?

Luckily for you, the Israeli Post Office is releasing a series of stamps delving just into that topic: A salute to three different Israeli submarines entered into Israeli service over the decades.

Israelis feeling outraged by the scandal and compelled to mail a letter to a legislator or newspaper in protest do have another stamp option, issued the same day, that might be appropriate: a series devoted to Israeli snakes.
