Bibi and the Death of Democracy in Israel

The clock is ticking. It is only a matter of hours. Citizens of Israel. Jews and non-Jews, hold tight to the tail of a democratic Israel. If Netanyahu becomes head of government for a fifth term, Jews can begin sitting shiva in mourning for the death of our democracy.

His recently announced  decision to annex most of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) will not be limited to Area C. His hungry hands will reach out and grab every bit of soil. And when he could have annexed the Palestinian territory thirteen years ago, he did not.  But now, two days before our election, he made his annexation decision solely to get more votes. We are not stupid. We know his under-handed measures.

The citizens of Israel are not blind nor dumb. They see through his sick-minded plan and they will resist it. Every sovereign nation in the world will condemn us. Even Bibi’s pal Trump will not agree to it. Nor will most of the Jewish Zionists in America.

Electing Netanyahu to a fifth term will result in the death of what is left of our democracy. He and his main adviser Sara must go. Israel desperately needs new leadership to counter the destructive Netanyahu elements. Avner the good Netanyahu can stay. Yair, the product of an  encounter on an ElAl airplane in 1982, must go with his abba and ima in order to restore sanity to our country.

Freedom of speech and freedom of the press must be upheld and supported by the law. There must be an end to “fake news”, a product of American nonsense.

Bibi’s foolish declaration that “there will not be a Palestinian state” flies in the face of the demands of all democratic nations. His declaration is an insult to member states which have agreed upon a two-state solution. Netanyahu, single-handed, cannot turn the world topsy-turvy. He is not the king of Israel but only a pseudo emperor standing naked with no clothes.

Attempts to smear Gantz and Lapid’s Blue-and-White aspirations will fail. They must fail if we want to preserve our democracy. We dare not permit an Israeli Erdogan to exist. He must go willingly if it is the wish of the people or he must go by force.

Down with tyranny. Long live democracy !

Citizens of Israel, friends and comrades, examine your hearts before you slip the piece of election paper into the box.  In your hands alone lies the security and democratic future growth of our country.

Honor it. Respect it. Love it. Treasure it. Cherish it.    In the wrong hands our democracy will disappear.

Do not allow that to happen.   Defeat Netanyahu by the love you hold dear to our Jewish state.
