Hasn’t Netanyahu struggles in the last two elections?
He’s struggled through the last four elections (in two years) and is about to bring Israel to its fifth election in a few months.
After every election Netanyahu is given the first chance to form a government, he can’t, so he remains PM until the next election. Rinse, lather, repeat.
I wish Israel knew it is more than one man.
That's not going to happen forever. If he doesn't win more convincingly next time, it's unlikely he'll be asked to form a government again.
Does this guy get paid every time he smears the normals with “right-wing” in this screed ?
Assassin piece on Israel.
Sicko Gwynne Dyer is FIXATED on Netanyahu.
Anti Bibi BS! I've never heard of the source. But is sounds like a leftist liars den. "The Pioneer"? (it is an Indian Newspaper)
The Pioneer was founded in Allahabad in 1865 by George Allen, an Englishman who ran a tea business but whose sharp mind ensured the newspaper exercised great influence in British India. Not only that, Sir Winston Churchill was The Pioneer's war correspondent while author Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), in his early 20s, worked at the newspaper office in Allahabad as an assistant editor from November 1887 to March 1889. The newspaper remained a primarily Lucknow-based paper until 1990, when it was purchased by the Thapar Group, under L. M. Thapar, who made it a national newspaper. Mr Mitra carried on the baton, not just fanning out into the heart of India but also to the east and coast. His two terms in the Rajya Sabha helped him develop an insight for a macro-oriented view of India and its place in contemporary dialogue.
Never heard of this antisemitic author “Gwynne Dyer” but I thought demographics has become destiny in Israel as far as rhe steady rightward shift i.e. the more religious especially recent immigrants have far more kids while the secular leftists thankfully don’t reproduce (thankfully this is the case in America as well).
Some aspects of Israel are reminiscent of South Africa — high fences, lots of guns, and large, unfriendly dogs — and religion has played a big role in politics in both countries. But the caravans are moving in opposite directions: South Africa towards democracy, Israel away from it.
Sounds like Jimmuh.
<< perpetual subjugation of its Arab population >>
Total BS, as is the entire article. Arabs hold at least a dozen seats in the Knesset. They also have equal voting rights, and in fact Israel is one of the few places in the Mideast where Arab women can vote.
The only legal distinction between Jewish and Arab citizens is that the latter aren’t required to serve in the Israeli army, yet many still do.
Yes, for the most part the two populations are segregated, but it’s not govt mandated. They CHOOSE to live apart.
Not surprisingly, the author pens articles praising Biden for his “sensibility” and fear-mongering about “climate change.”
OMG! The Rubes!
Yes, but not surprisingly, he's got fans here on FR.
“ The only legal distinction between Jewish and Arab citizens is that the latter aren’t required to serve in the Israeli army”
And when they become a majority are they allowed to make Islam the official religion?
As of a couple years ago, for the first time in Israeli history, the Jewish fertility rate surpassed that of the Arabs. There’ll be no Arab majority in Israel. ...unlike (eventually) in Western Europe.
There was a tempest in a small teapot recently, as Human Rights Watch (HRW) …Screed dies right there.
I see he has a Stalinazi Fascist Sheep-Fisting Salute poster on his page.
