Fascism Wins Big in Israel
Inaccurate reports say Israel elected centrists.
by Stephen Lendman
Israeli election results hardened fascist rule. Dominant right-wing parties control 102 of 120 Knesset seats.
Israelis have themselves to blame. They elected Israel's most extremist government in history. Militarism, belligerence, state-sponsored terrorism, occupation ruthlessness, settlement expansions, and neoliberal harshness reflect official policy.
Peace is a non-starter. A so-called process never existed and doesn't now. Israel won't tolerate it. Netanyahu scorns it. He calls it a waste of time.
Palestinians and Israeli Arabs have the greatest cross to bear. They're marginalized, denied, persecuted and brutalized.
Institutionalized racism terrorizes them. Their rights are off the table. Israeli Arabs are enfranchised in name only.
