Honesty and Jewish solidarity can come before being politically correct
A. I’m for democratic-religious competition on Judaism in Israel.
B. I’m for Muslims in the government, not to be just on the menu.
C. I’m for a civil marriage option, and the obligation to teach secular stuff.
In other words, I seem a lefty. So, why won’t I trash Netanyahu and Deri?
1. Trashing them just enlarges disunity, and that hurts the People.
2. It really seems to me the Israeli justice system has been unfair to them.
3. Let’s talk issues (capitalism), not people (fake flashpoints).
4. To talk badly about fellow Jews for no constructive purpose is a big sin.
5. These two have great merits that I don’t want to throw overboard:
When corona started, the Jewish capitalist Netanyahu chose for being a Jew/humanist first. He held: first save lives, then the economy. (Trump did the opposite and well over 1M USers died.) He also warmly welcomed the Likud’s openly Gay MK Ochanah. Those are great accomplishments.
Deri always looks out for those with little money, both Jews and Muslims. So, he’s neither a capitalist nor a chauvinist. Those are great qualities.
I won’t vote for Netanyahu because I find capitalism a cruel system. And I won’t vote for Deri because I’m for separation of State and Religion. But I also refuse to trash them. We have already enough Antisemites doing so.
So, the Right assumes I’m a lefty. But, many left-wingers assume I’m a right-winger since I refuse to trash the Right or to glorify the Loony Left. The Right sees me as left and the Left as right. I’m not the tame centrist falsely equalizing Right and Left. I see myself as a radically centrist.
