Having just been tasked with forming a government, Lapid, Bennet, et al have come to a place of real opportunity.
This eternal “Left versus Right” ideology is very close to the “them versus us”, a historically well-known blight on nations.
Our government should reflect our population and this includes the Arab sector. Our government should include Left and Right, not one or the other.
Two years and four elections later the cancerous internal discord could wipe out Israel. I suggest we celebrate our differences and take advantage of plurality.
Consider the novel idea of reversing the Ostrich Approach to Diversity: Pulling your head out of the sand — a timely answer to the renewed urgency for diversity information, and quick implementation of the action. And all this is just considering internal issues. What about the Diaspora? Does anyone notice that half the world’s Jews live outside of Israel? These Jews, by and large Reform or Conservative are augmented by some Orthodox and secular Jews and none of them appreciate being castigated as non-Jews. This is being written at a grade school level on purpose. What ideological machination or alleged economic advantages would not stand up to common sense?
Besieged ay our borders by existential threats, our streets marred by daily violence, and our circle of friends versus circle of enemies orbiting around us, leave us little room to maneuver.
Now there is an opportunity to form a real democracy!
And now is not the time to go down the 1920s German rabbit hole. It ended rather badly.
I seize the opportunity! This may not come along for a long time.
