Israel welcomes a fascist into its government and the world stands silently by.
In many ways, this may be a positive move towards the growing international isolation of the Jewish state. Avigdor Lieberman advocates the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and Arabs. He has demanded that Israel bomb the Aswan Dam.
Many around the world will begin to see that Israel, now partly governed by a man and ideology – comparable to Iran’s president, according to Haaretz – that finally does not speak in code. He wants a pure Jewish state without Arabs.
A long-term Israeli philosophy, regularly couched in diplomatic niceties, is revealed (though I’m sure Zionists will remain silent in the face of such a menace.) The Arab, Muslim and Palestinian world will react appropriately. Once again, Israel’s political elite accelerates the country’s demise.
