During his previous terms in office, Benjamin Netanyahu oversaw some of the most brutal attacks on Gaza, attacks that caused thousands of civilian casualties. He was also indicted on corruption charges, and yet enough Israelis found him suitable to return to the post of Prime Minister, and he was elected with a comfortable majority.
In the United States, Netanyahu is respected in spite of his 2002 appearance in the U.S. House of Representatives saying that, If you take out Saddams regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region. The Iraq War cost countless lives and billions of dollars and caused disastrous reverberations in the region.
KAHANE DISCIPLES IN POWER
What is most disturbing is that Netanyahu owes his return to power to the students of the racist, Arab-hating thug Meir Kahane. Kahane founded the Jewish Defense League, which the FBI designated a terrorist organization. Kahane preached for the forced transfer of most of the Arabs from Palestine and the creation of Jewish only beaches, schools and towns. Much of what he preached is already reality in the state of Israel, but the brashness of his discourse was too much, even for Israelis.
Kahane was elected to the Knesset in 1984, but he was completely shunned, and even though there was a right wing government in place at the time, he had no chance whatsoever of getting a seat at the table. A government post for him could not have even been considered. Fast-forward to 2022 and the very disciples of Kahane not only ideologically but actual disciples are not running the tables. Itamar Ben-Gvir who studied at Kahanes yeshiva in Jerusalem (yes, Kahane had a yeshiva in Jerusalem where he taught hate and violence to young Israeli Jews) is a racist thug who enjoys tremendous popularity among the countrys youth, is going to be a major part of the next Israeli government.
