Israel's 19th Knesset
Israel elected its most extremist government in history.
by Stephen Lendman
On January 22, Israelis elected 120 19th Knesset members. Over 80% of its members are extremist hardliners.The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) assessed prospects ahead.
Israel's current body is its most extremist. Future prospects look worse. Polls suggest "we may be heading towards a more hardline" body.
Current legislators enacted numerous anti-democratic laws. Warning flags are raised. Flashing red lights signal worse times ahead.
Civil liberties and human rights are on the chopping block for elimination. Few people have a clue about what's coming. They have themselves to blame. Others more informed are dismissive.
Governments unaccountably get away with murder.
