For years, the loony left has tried to get rid of Netanyahu. It didn’t work at the polls. Disputed court cases against him are going nowhere. But now, maybe a winning approach has been found.
- Tell the public that Netanyahu’s approach against corona is wrong.
- When the public disobeys, say: See, the government has no authority.
- Then the pandemic gets deadlier, but don’t blame the public but Bibi.
- When the pandemic tapers off, say: Bibi’s stringencies are killing us.
The Israeli public, good people, but it resembles someone in an early stage of dementia. They talk about their youth and ask for their parents who died decades ago but can’t make out their children so well anymore. Israelis remember the Holocaust as if it was yesterday. And the War of Independence, the Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the Second Intifada, but not what happened last year/month/week. (Something happened?)
In the first few corona months, Bibi was the public’s hero. No one remembers that anymore. Let’s hope that when the pandemic has ended, no one remembers the scandal of how the opposition undermined health experts’ advice, over the back of thousands of deaths, just to oust Bibi.
I don’t like everything Netanyahu ever said or did but he’s done a lot of good and still. Compare that to politicians whose only dream is replacing him at any cost. The only other leader who showed character and principle is Gantz. He could succeed him. The rest are just self-centered egotists with no talents and no morals but to sling mud and promote themselves.
My opinion. That I don’t read or hear anywhere. Someone should say it.
