Hardening Israeli Fascism
Israel, like America, is heading toward full-blown tyranny.
by Stephen Lendman
Israel's war on Palestine and Israeli Arab citizens reflects it. So does extreme hardline governance. Pre-election polls show Netanyahu's Likud/Yisrael Beiteinu coalition favored to win.
They'll partner with likeminded extremists. Most Israelis remain shockingly indifferent. Many are ideologically supportive. Haaretz sounded the alarm.
On January 3, its editorial headlined "Danger - extreme right," saying:
Naftali Bennett's Habayit (The Jewish Home) shows increasing popular support. Post-election, he may become one of Netanyahu's coalition partners. Increasingly it looks likely.
With Yisrael Beiteinu, Shas and United Torah Judaism, worse than ever right wing extremism will dominate. Current Netanyahu coalition partners support belligerence, neoliberal harshness, and racist hate. So does Naftali Bennett's Habayit Hayehudi party.
