The Mirage & Facade Of Israeli Democracy:”Elected Despotism” Tolerates/Encourages Militant Jihad. The Whys & Wherefores. Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

BEFORE assorted enemies of Israel – the homeland of the Jewish people – pounce on this site’s assertion that the country is not a (normative) democracy, it must be clarified: When compared to its jungle-like neighbors, yes, Israel is indeed a democratic entity. Not only that, its top leaders bend over backwards to ensure that unbridled multiculturalism – an anything goes mentality akin to the “wild west” – is their calling card. Concomitantly and paradoxically, an increasingly hostile and dangerous Arab/Muslim minority holds the whip over the majority Jewish public as a result of said obsession. Leftists alike. Effectively, the leaders are hell bent on proving their liberal bonafides. Resultant, they continuously trample on the rights of the majority (secular and religious) Zionist public! Credo quia absurdum.

MORE specifically, countless conflate (and confuse) Israel’s liberalism – for granting unfettered civil and human rights to the gay community and its minority citizens – with the sine qua non of Israel’s democratic veneer. Mind you, as if THAT, in itself, qualifies for its hallowed mantle. Hogwash. In fact, while many (other than those who despise Israel just for surviving, regardless of all else) prefer to believe in this fairy tale, few dare ask the most salient question: Since the majority Zionist public ushered PM Netanyahu – a supposed “right-wing” leader, having won 3 elections since 1996 via said creds – into power, how can it be that this same majority’s wishes are ignored, time and again?

MOST tellingly, it is the right-wing public which stands behind a muscular response to domestic Arab/Muslim militant jihad, still yet, PM Netanyahu holds back from said tactics! In other words, as previously noted:

To pre-empt this escalation and freeze the current wave of attacks, Israel’s military and intelligence chiefs have put forward a 7-point plan of action:

  • A general lockdown on Palestinian-populated areas of Judea, Samaria and Hebron for an indefinite period.
  • This lockdown would extend to the Palestinian districts of East Jerusalem.
  • Its borderline would run roughly along the defense barrier. Electronic tracking devices would be installed in the gaps with security personnel deployed according to need.
  • The roadblocks thrown up on the side roads leading to Palestinian villages and towns along the main highways, like Route 60 in the Gush Etzion and Hebron districts, have proved ineffective. The Palestinians find ways of circumventing them.
  • Blowing up the homes of Palestinian terrorist killers has proved disappointing as an effective deterrent to the spreading violence.
  • Military and intelligence experts are of the opinion that the desired effect of a de-escalation will only be achieved by an ultimatum: Give up terrorism or be cut off from Israel, so losing your jobs and your major sources of income.
  • Reservists will need to be mobilized on a large scale for this plan’s implementation.

{The list of terror victims could fill a book, yes, they are the “sacrifices for peace” coined by Israel’s addled “elder statesman”, Shimon Peres.}

SO, what the hell is going on in Israel? Well, instead of taking concrete PROACTIVE measures, the so-called right-wing leadership are always REACTIVE, at least when it comes to the domestic fifth column. This investigative journalist defies anyone to prove otherwise. Perversely and non-democratically, the majority public (who elected him) is relegated to listening to macho posturing and ever more bold-faced lies from “Bibi and Co.”

In a speech at the site of last Friday’s shooting attack in Tel Aviv the prime minister did seem to adopt a hint of Liberman’s often-harsh rhetoric on Arab citizens of Israel, vowing to “dramatically increase” police enforcement in Arab towns and root out “pockets of lawlessness” in the Arab population.

ASSUREDLY, almost always, the security services catch the terrorists AFTER the fact. However, dead is dead, and as far as anyone can tell they have yet to be resurrected. 

Amazing Israel's photo.

 

CONSEQUENTLY, the mirage and facade of Israeli democracy must be explained and placed in plain view. An effective starting point can be accessed here: The Paradox of Israeli Politics: Vote Right, Get Left.

COUPLED with said primary lesson into the dysfunctional morass which passes for Israel’s political system – akin to an insane asylum – it is imperative to hear from the master of this domain, Professor Paul Eidelberg.

The Brainwashed People of Israel

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Various passages of Alexis de Tocqueville’s unfinished work The European Revolution, where he discusses France under Napoleon and Rome under Augustus Caesar, indicate that Israel, especially under the reign of Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu, approximates a democratically elected despotism!

Since 30 and more parties compete in Israeli national elections, and since 8 parties win seats in the Knesset, Israel has never had a majority party at the helm of state!

As a consequence, and virtually unknown to Israeli political scientists, who may simply be steeped in the political complacency, no vivid normative public opinion really exists in this country. This means that the Government of Israel has no clear and coherent national purpose conceptually and existentially related to Israel’s Jewish heritage. Hence the Government stumbles along, pursuing improvised and placid, if not docile policies toward friends and foes.

Israel’s enemies are therefore free to pursue their designs against the Jewish state with hardly any concern about Israel’s reaction, since Israel’s timid government rarely takes the initiative in foreign affairs, leaving the public in a mental fog.

In other words, the Government of Israel has given our enemies a free ride. Israel’s Prime Minister hardly needs to worry about public opinion in this country. This was shockingly evident on June 14, 2009 when Mr. Netanyahu endorsed the creation of a Muslim Arab state on the land of Israel without a whisper of protest from the brainwashed sheeple of Israel.

This passivity, nay, servility, has been the modus operandi in Israel since 1993, when the Rabin Government recognized Yasser Arafat’s PLO. And this servility has been entrenched and unshakable since 1995, when Netanyahu became PM and passively adopted the inane and insane policy of “territory for peace” with the PLO, the murderous disciples of Muhammad.

The brainwashed sheeple of Israel, lacking a government with any clear and coherent national policy rooted in the Jewish heritage, and having no political analysts to warn them of the consequences of this ideological void, have become amenable to prime ministerial dictatorship. This became transparent on June 14, 2009 when PM Netanyahu, without Knesset or public debate, endorsed the creation of a Muslim state on the holy land of the Jewish people without a whisper of public protest from this brainwashed people, including its orthodox religious Jews!

In view of his endorsement of a Muslim-Arab state in the land of Israel without any discernible public protest from the brainwashed people of Israel, there is virtually nothing Netanyahu need fear doing for the sake of his peace process, including sharing sovereignty over Jerusalem with the Palestinian Authority!

BOTTOM LINE:

LET there be no doubt, if requisite procedural (political) prescriptive measures aren’t taken, suffice to assert that more and more dead Jewish bodies will pile up. The onus – for time immemorial – will land at the feet of Israel’s so-called democratic leaders. Indeed, this mantle will be justly deserved!!
