Naftali Bennett is not our savior

It seems that the center and the left have found themselves a new savior – Naftali Bennett.

After he managed to wrest the position of Prime Minister with only five mandates, and sat in the Prime Minister’s chair for almost a year (although in practice he did not manage the government for a single moment), a few statements and videos during the terrible month of October 23’ were enough for a large part of the public to pick Bennett as a leader and savior.

Unfortunately, our collective memory is very short.

Naftali Bennett is one of the main people responsible for the situation in which the State of Israel is in today. Bennett is up there at the top of the list. Responsible for the decay of the public systems, division, incitement, rift between portions of this countries and brainwashing.

If you recall, Naftali Bennett served as Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff until 2008. After he was dismissed (along with his partner Ayelet Shaked), then he moved to the position of CEO of Moetzet Yesha Council.

As CEO of Moetzet Yesha, together with Shaked, he founded “My Israel” organization, a cover organization for the actions of the Yesha Council, an organization responsible for several incitement campaigns starting in 2010.

As part of the “My Israel” campaigns, they attacked artists who expressed liberal views, attacked Gali Tzahal and defined it as “Hamas station”, presented themselves as if they supported the “Tent Protest” in 2011 together with “Im Tirzu” organization, but in fact worked for the governments’ interests, they attacked the US Secretary of State, John Kerry for his demand to stop construction in the settlements and much more.

This method of work was taken from the textbook of the conservative right in the USA about their many issue organizations, research institutes and conspiracies.

Bennett, as Minister of Education, worked to re-educate the secular public, and introduced the subject “Tarbut Israelit” (“Israel culture”) into the compulsory curriculum in state education, which aims to indoctrinate elementary school students of religious right-wing agenda. He also strengthened the “Masa Israeli” program, the purpose of which is religious right-wing indoctrination, which replaces the annual trip of the 11th graders.

Another of his enterprises in the Ministry of Education is the strengthening of the “Gareinim Toraniim”, whose goal is to engage in brainwashing of the secular public in dozens of localities where they are located, while taking control of public resources.

Among other things, during his tenure as Minister of Education, Bennett called for the release of Elor Azaria, prevented “Shoverim Tishika” to hold lectures and a host of other things hostile to the liberal camp in Israel.

As is well known, in Israel since 2009 an entire factory of incitement and brainwashing has been launched, including organizations, “research institutes”, media outlets, “journalists”, Gareinim Toraniim and indoctrination programs in the education system – Naftali Bennett was one of the main architects of this massive campaign that brought Israel to this low point in its history.
