Bennett deplores truth and full disclosure. He opposes left of center journalism. He criticizes all forms of "excessive activism." He's against prosecutorial/judicial efforts short of hardline. 

"Excessive legalism" language flashes red lights. He wants Supreme Court authority weakened.

"We will act to decrease judicial activism and the court's imbalanced interference in laws passed by the Knesset, and in central decisions by the state and army," he says.

He wants non-Jews excluded from Israel. He's against employers hiring "foreigners." Platform language calls them "infiltrators," a "time bomb."

His platform says "IDF soldiers and commanders must follow all orders fully, even if they do not like them."

Polls show growing numbers of Israeli centrists and right-of-center moderates support Habayit Hayehudi.

"They must understand that they would be voting for a party that is much more extreme than the image it presents," said Haaretz. 

"A dangerous ideology, intended to undermine democracy and the rule of law in Israel, lurks behind Bennett's smile."

Netanyahu/Lieberman are ideological allies. Palestinians are ruthlessly persecuted. Daily reports reflect Kristallnacht harshness.

On January 3, the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) headlined "Likud Officials Call On Government to 'Annex C Area' in West Bank," saying:

Its territory comprises over 60% of the West Bank. Hardline officials consider it sovereign Israeli territory. Senior Likud members want it "officially regard(ed) as part of the state of Israel."

Information and Diaspora Minister, Yuli Edelstein, and MK Zeev Elkin said Israel must usurp sovereignty.

"Judea and Samaria must be in the hands of Israel forever," they insist. Other hardliners express similar views. They want revenge. They condemned Palestine's UN upgrade.

They spurn rule of law principles. They want settlement expansions continued. They claim Israel's right to all valued Judea and Samaria territory. They call it "state land." They want Jerusalem as Israel's exclusive capital.  

They want the right to have whatever they wish. They want Palestinians marginalized and denied. They support harsh crackdowns against resisters.
