Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s kingmaker, has adopted the election slogan “Make Israel Normal Again!”
You should know that normalcy is one of Israel’s worst psychological flaws. Not that I blame Israelis for what our enemies inflicted on us.
After the Holocaust, the was no time for anyone needing psychological attention. You were fit to help build a state or you could be ignored.
First victims, of course, are people needing psychological help and the GLBTQ+ community. But really, under such a philosophy, everyone suffers who wants to be authentic — especially young children.
We wonder not only what the Gay Caucus of the Likud and Blue and White think of this but also the Gay Caucus of the Nyet Party — in jest because the party of Russian immigrants has no Gay Caucus. Echoing the situation in Russia under Putin, where being positive about homosexuality is outlawed and men are allowed to beat their wives.
Just when you hoped that Lieberman would lead the country to liberate itself from religious domination, he comes out a reactionary bigot. A real alternative might actually lies with the united Zehut- New Right list.
