This is why Netanyahu still surges

Before the leftists and radical critics takes the stage by hypocritically hailing Netanyahu’s victory as another instance of far right populism, let’s quickly and calmly settle down all existing scores by identifying the major circumstances surrounding Bibi’s re-emergence.

It’s without doubt that Bibi remains Israel’s longest serving Prime Minister, and obviously is on a fast track to becoming one of the world longest serving Leaders. While we must hail Bibi’s powerfully amazing diplomatic skills, fluency and charismatic leadership (though currently dogged by the yet to commence trial), one can’t help but notice that this is a World wide victory for conservativism, much more than it is a vote on the personality of the Prime Minister.

The world cannot continue leaving on negatives, having experienced the clear and obvious failure of Liberal democracy in standing up for the very ethics that formed the foundation of their Ideology, having watched the Media become hijacked and a tool for spreading the opinions of some few, having watched some bureaucrats try to steal power from the People; in the name of the people, by cleverly crafted propagandas and scheme’s, having watched democracy taken a new name as the “Government of the Few loud mouthed bureaucrats, by the excellent work of pragmatic Media gurus, and for the policies of some few,” Having watched what Sean Hannity called the deep state creeping through every corners of modern societies, the world have continuously time after time passed the verdict that only a return to the realistic fundamentals of Conservative democracy; “Which in reality create rooms for changes but only after such changes have been carefully tested by all necessary quarters,” can herald the peace and transquility the world actually deserves.

From Germany to Britain, to the United States, to certain parts of Asia, Africa and other Nations of the world, citizens have time after time voted enmasse as though taking a referendum on What Ideology should dominate the polity than merely on the individual whose personality was fit to lead.

The state of Israel haven’t ever been different in this regards, from the first elections in April to the Second in September and now to this just concluded polls, Israeli’s have time and again demonstrated not just some uncanny desire for change but a deep zeal for pragmatic developmental transformation, and not radical changes some tenets of liberalism portends.

Demonstrating that change ought to be a gradual process which; like Hegelian Dialectics should characteristically flow from ‘thesis to antithesis and then to synthesis,’ people the world over have realistically proven that this in reality is the way change ought to proceed than the radical societal overturn heralded by Liberalism, which gives no room for step by step trials, but ends up leaving the entire society in the lurch or in shambles whenever failure set in, thus making little or no room for adjustments and condemning all who refuse to accept their views as enemies of change. The people have again proven that change should be a product of ‘the people,’ and not a product of Governmental or selective political ideologies.

While some may see this elections as a referendum on the personality of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Which in a sense could be true), I tend to diverge a little, and thus inferentially see the results of this polls, in reality as part of the referendum by free citizens all over the world, on what Ideology should govern World Politics.
