Likud and other right-wing parties force-feed austerity. Neoliberal extremism affects Israel like Western states. Voters perhaps don't understand. They have themselves to blame. They favor parties harming their own self-interest.
On January 18, Haaretz headlined "Garbage time: The Likud-right-religious bloc ahead by a large margin," saying:
It's "a foregone conclusion."
"It didn't have to be this way."- Advertisement -
"The bottom line remains unchanged."
"Likud-right-Haredi bloc is" way ahead. "Likud-Yisrael Beiteinu (looks) set to win" about double "as many seats as the next-largest party."
Netanyahu will get four more years. Imagine what's likely after all the harm he caused. He'll get public affirmation to inflict it. He'll take full advantage. Jews will be harmed like others.
State terror will remain policy. So will neoliberal harshness. Hard times will get harder. Regional war perhaps looms.
Military strength will be prioritized. Iran is targeted. It's falsely called an existential threat. Syria boils across the border. Occupation harshness continues. Gaza remains isolated under siege.
