Oz isn't the only concerned figure. Six former Shin Bet heads expressed candid opinions. They did so publicly for the first time. They're concerned for good reason. Their fears are well justified. They're uneasy about Israel under Netanyahu.

Yuval Diskin headed Shin Bet (General Security Service) from 2005 - 2011. He called Netanyahu unreliable. His judgment is sorely lacking.

He "shirk(s) responsibility." He represents "a crisis in leadership here, a crisis of values and total contempt for the public. Maybe people will think I'm exaggerating, but I'm telling you. From close up it looks even worse."

Netanyahu has messianic ambitions, he added. He's-over-the-top and dangerous. He wants his stamp put on history. He wants it written the wrong way.

He menaces Israel and regional states. He's untrustworthy and dangerous. He created "a false picture on Iran."

"When I see the current leadership," he added, "I am worried about" Israel's future. He, Oz and others have just cause for concern. 

The Jerusalem Post is unabashedly right-wing. On January 10, it headlined "A Strong PM, a strong Israel?"

"In 1999," it said, Netanyahu "fell in love with the term 'strong.' His slogan was "A strong leader for a strong nation."

Today he says "A strong prime minister, a strong Israel." He's "romanc(ing)" Israelis because he's "weak."

"He doesn't know it, but his staff knows it. The weak love to look strong." They follow political handlers' advice. Netanyahu relies largely on Arthur Finkelstein. 

He gets bad advice. "(B)ecause Netanyahu is so strong, he does everything Arthur says." He doesn't have a mind of his own.

He's weak, incompetent, unreliable, and dangerous but won't admit it. Israelis aren't wise enough to know better.

He represents triumphant hard-right politics. America, Canada, and much of Europe have the same affliction.

In 1932, Mussolini declared the 20th century a "Fascist century," saying:

"It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the 'Right,' a Fascist century." He claimed it would "sav(e) Western civilization." For what he didn't explain.
