Democracy, in Israel, as far as survival goes, has become at best a ludicrous bad dream, or, worse and most probable-- a nightmare -- a weapon used by Fifth Columnists aimed at destroying Israel as a democratic Jewish country. Israeli politics, like in the rest of the Western world, has become driven by one-sided Political Correctness - as if in an alternate world; a "twilight zone" has taken root in Israel, the USA, and the EU. Yes indeed, we have entered the Era of #ScienceFictionPolitics.
Israel's biggest threat is not from the might of foreign armies, but rather from an enemy within, an enemy that is using the privileges of democracy to bring about its very demise.
Israel, a country the size of a ranch in the US or Australia, and whose very existence sits on a fence -- a pointy picket fence -- wishes to be a super-power in the Science Fictional World of Political Correctness, so adamantly, that she is willing to risk Her very existence.
So in the spirit of this ever-emerging absurd "Russian Roulette" style of law, a style that takes democracy to its outer limits, Israel welcomes into Her parliament (aka Knesset), those that fight daily to destroy Her. Yes, they are paid Members of Knesset that rake in their annual salaries and benefits, paid by Jewish taxpayers of Israel -- paying for their daily activities aimed at bringing Israel to disaster.
And as weird as it may seem, I may get into trouble for describing the situation as it is -- such is the status of "freedom of speech" these days. Much like in the USA today where one is considered a racist for describing the ongoing atrocities around the globe as "Islamic terror" - even when the terrorists themselves claim it is. The alternative to speaking one's mind about this, is to go silently into the night - so I speak, que sera sera.
Horse #1 Achmad Tibi Former Adviser to Arafat
Israel pays Arab Knesset members to lecture in the halls of the enemy, to say things such as:
> "...Welcome to the thousands of shahids (martyrs)..."
> "...and blessings to our shahids within the Greenline..."
> "...those that the occupiers call terrorists while we say there is nothing more admirable than those that die for the homeland..."
Hard to believe? Here, take a gander: Ahmad Tibi - Israeli Arab MP, former adviser to Father of Modern Terrorism, Yasser Arafat, giving this speech:
Horse #2 Haneen Zoabi
"...I don’t consider myself just a member of Knesset. We are part of the national project..."
"...Arab Knesset members are part of the 'Palestinian national project,' not Israel's political system..."
Hanin Zoabi tells Lebanese media she doesn't feel part of the Knesset, and her only role is to represent Palestinian 'struggle.'
