Former PM Calls Israel’s Regime Fascist

by Stephen Lendman

On Friday, former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak called appointing ultranationalist extremist Avigdor Lieberman defense minister “a red light for all of us regarding what’s going on in the government.”

“What has happened is a hostile takeover of the Israeli government by dangerous elements. And it’s just the beginning.”

Netanyahu’s government is “infected by seeds of fascism.” It “needs to be brought down” before it destroys Israel…There are no serious leaders left in the world who believe” in it.

He blasted legislation similar to what Turkish lawmakers enacted Saturday – lifting immunity for Knesset members to eliminate Arab MKs critical of Netanyahu’s regime, falsely claiming they support terrorism.

He failed to explain zionism harms Jews and non-Jews alike. Israel treats its own Arab citizens ruthlessly, along with West Bank, Gazan and East Jerusalem Palestinians – a policy far more discriminatory and vicious than what occurs in Western and most other societies.

The late Israel Shahak wrote extensively on how Israel mistreats Arabs in virtually all aspects of their lives, including what he called most important – “residency rights, the right to work (and) equality before the law.”

The intention is obvious, he said – to achieve maximum Jews and minimum Arabs. Zionism is violent, anti-democratic, repugnant and indefensible.

Netanyahu is Israel’s most polarizing leader, exceeding the worst of his predecessors, a fascist by any standard, heading the nation’s most extremist ever regime – hardened with Lieberman’s appointment as defense minister.

It’s just a matter of time before he unleashes full-force fury on Palestinians throughout the territories and causes greater alienation of Israel than already.

“We will…have to pay the price for (his) appointment,” said Barak, adding he “pray(s) that the price won’t be too hefty.”
