Former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon: Benjamin Netanyahu is fostering “fascistization”

Moshe Ya'alon: “If there is something that I lose sleep over, it’s the cracks in Israel’s society, the erosion of basic values, the attempts to harm IDF soldiers and their commanders. It is a fact – the leadership is tempestuous and being dragged.”

Ya’alon: Benjamin Netanyahu is wrecking Israel.

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

Benjamin Netanyahu has recently gotten hit by a political bullet, and this is coming from former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon. Netanyahu, says Ya’alon, is fostering “fascistization” in Israel and much of the West.

Last April, Ya’alon declared Netanyahu “‘should have resigned a while ago’ as a result of the ongoing criminal investigations against him… Ya’alon said that Netanyahu’s refusal to step down despite being a suspect in two criminal investigations was a result of the problematic ‘political culture’ in Israel.”[1]

Ya’alon, who was also a senior leader in Netanyahu’s conservative Likud Party, declared elsewhere:

“If there is something that I lose sleep at night about, it’s not the truckloads of weapons in Syria and Lebanon or Iran’s attempts to wage terror – Israel has the capabilities to deal with these forcefully and with sophistication.

“If there is something that I lose sleep over, it’s the cracks in Israel’s society, the erosion of basic values, the attempts to harm IDF soldiers and their commanders. It is a fact – the leadership is tempestuous and being dragged.”[2]

Ya’alon added: “This is a matter of political culture, obviously there is no smoke without fire.”[3] And the man behind the fire is Benjamin Netanyahu himself. “With great sorrow, senior politicians in the country have chosen incitement and divisiveness of the Israeli society instead of unifying and connecting,” said Ya’alon. “It is unacceptable to me that we be divided because of cynicism or craving for control, and I expressed more than once my opinion on the matter — from a position of sincere worry for the future of Israeli society and future generations.”[4]

Obviously Ya’alon’s critique here is not compatible with the Zionist ideology which Zionist organs like the Washington Post have been perpetuating. Netanyahu has been polluting the political order since he took office. In fact, he writes books postulating “fascistization.” In his 1995 propaganda book Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists, Netanyahu posited the claim that

“The best estimates at this time place Iran between three and five years away from possessing the prerequisites required for the independent production of nuclear weapons.

“After this time, the Iranian Islamic republic will have the ability to construct atomic weapons without the importation of materials or technology from abroad…The first phase of construction and electrical work will be completed within three to four years.”[5]

That was 22 years ago! Iran still doesn’t have the bomb. On the contrary, the intelligence community has universally declared that Iran dropped its nuclear programs a long time ago.[6]

But the sad thing is that the mad man in Tel Aviv is still perpetuating the same thing as if people of reason didn’t pay attention to what he said back then. Fighting Terrorism was hailed as a breakthrough by the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Detroit News, etc.

Have those Zionist outlets apologized for praising the bold lies in the book? Have they apologized to thousands upon thousands of readers who plunked down the money to buy it? Have they chastised the mad man in Tel Aviv for perpetuating the nonsense?

No.

    Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the world’s leading anti-semites of our age. Many Israelis are not aware of this but younger generations might be.

    So on one hand we are facing the fanatics speaking from the TALMUD position and on the other hand we are dealing with the fanatics speaking from the Sharia Law position. Thank to the MSN and our governments who are obeying the deep state both of these lunatic and murderous philosophies are occupying the worlds time and endangering us with WW3. I am not prepared to die for the Talmud or the Sharia Law people. My position is very simple along with the people of earth. A pox on both your houses. Get out of the way. We will have peace on this earth and if you do not understand that then perhaps we shall introduce you to our God and he will judge you.

    Netanyahu has forged a coalition government that could be toppled if even one member decides to change sides. To hold that coalition together, Nutty has made some rather unpopular decisions, the latest of which may fracture the already fractious Israeli society. Recent demands from the Ultra-Orthodox parties include: the government must halt all repairs of railroad tracks during the Sabbath, full control of conversions to Judaism must be regulated by the state rabbinate (controlled by the Ultra-Orthodox), and the Western Wall compromise that allowed women to pray at the wall must be reversed. A good summary of the issues with links to articles in Israel’s media is here: http://news.antiwar.com/2017/06/30/netanyahu-i-had-to-give-in-to-ultra-orthodox-demands-or-lose-government/

    Israel is fast becoming a fascist theocracy armed with a substantial nuclear arsenal and the best conventional weapons that US taxpayers can provide.
