Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing coalition has been accused of trying to turn Israel into a “dictatorship” after it introduced legislation to tame senior judges and human rights groups opposed to its settlement construction policies.
The good people of Israel need to boot him and his party from power while they still can. Pretty soon he’ll declare himself king and lord and strip the citizens of all their rights.
Members of the Kadima, the principal opposition party, waved black flags to mourn the “death of democracy” after Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, passed two bills that will tilt the balance of the country’s Supreme Court sharply to the right. The legislators involved in the protest had their flags confiscated before being expelled from the Knesset’s chamber at the orders of the speaker. The passage of the bills has prompted outrage among many Israeli politicians who see them as an assault on the independence of the judiciary, one that would undermine the country’s cherished democratic foundations. Tzipi Livni, the leader of the opposition, accused Mr Netanyahu of an “attempt to transform Israeli into a type of dictatorship,” while her Kadima party claimed that the legislation represented the “gravest” challenge to democracy since the establishment of the state in 1948.
Bibi is the world’s most dangerous man. He’s a danger to the Middle East; he’s an enemy of peace; and he’s a danger to his own people. George Bush was a better person and a better leader than Bibi.
