Dying for Justice in Israel


Israel is one of the most repressive, socially unjust states.

by Stephen Lendman

Among developed countries, Israel is one of the world's most socially, politically, and economically unjust. It mocks democratic values and social justice. 

It's run of, for, and by privileged elites. Ordinary people don't matter. Extreme wealth disparities, eroding social benefits, and security force harshness reveal a declining nation in decay.

Its ideologically hardline neoliberal, repressive, and corrupt. It's no fit place to live in. No wonder so many Jews vote with their feet and leave. Many others prepare by securing foreign passports.

Israelis want longstanding grievances resolved equitably. Issue one is social injustice. Street protests highlight growing anger. Moshe Silman expressed outrage by self-immolation death.

In December 2010, Tunisian Mohammed Bouazizi set himself ablaze. He protested in front of Sidi Bouzid government offices. At issue was police confiscating his merchandise for operating without a permit. He was a street vendor. He sold vegetables.
