New York Times on Israel's Democracy
NYT deplores democracy.
by Stephen Lendman
The Times is a longtime imperial apologist. It's no different on Israel. On July 21, its editorial headlined "Israel's Embattled Democracy."
Instead of discussing the real Israel, it did more to defend than criticize it. The Likud/Kadima divorce occasioned it.
In early May, unity was announced. Ten weeks later it dissolved. Collusion between Israel's two major parties dealt another blow to its faux democracy.
Netanyahu was called "a disappointing, risk-averse leader." Saying so conceals his real faults. He's Israel's worst ever prime minister. He's a world class thug.
He heads a racist, repressive government. He contemptuously ignores the needs of his own people. Moshe Silman self-immolated in protest.
