Police State Israel


Israel is unfit and unsafe to live in.

by Stephen Lendman

Israeli Arabs always knew what increasingly affects Jews. Israel is unfit to live in. It's unfair, unjust and unsafe. 

Rogue leaders control things. Wealth, power, privilege and dominance alone matter. Militarism and violence are prioritized over peace. Social justice rights go begging.

Dissent and resistance aren't tolerated. Last summer, Moshe Silman self-immolated. He died for justice. He left a note saying:

"The state of Israel stole from me and robbed me. It left me helpless."

"Two Housing and Construction Ministry committees rejected me, even though I had a stroke."

He was disabled and disheartened. He couldn't survive on his $582 monthly allowance. 

"I can't even live month to month," he said. "I won't be homeless, and so I am protesting."

He blamed "the state of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, for the humiliation that the weakened citizens go through every day, taking from the poor and giving to the rich."

In summer 2011, Israelis protested nationwide for social justice. Hundreds of thousands participated. People chanted "We want justice, not charity."

"Taking from the poor, giving to the rich, what a country of corruption."

Growing social and economic inequality affects most Israelis. Since the 1980s, policies disproportionately favored privileged elites.
