  •  Yes YB (0+ / 0-)

    They are for a strong Israel. The party maintains an anti-clerical mantle and encourages socio-economic opportunities for new immigrants, in conjunction with efforts to increase Jewish immigration.

      stands on you know... things like RACISM? Uber nationalist Loyalty Oaths? Income inequality and cronyism in Israeli society? Little things like that.

      YB is close to fascist. And this comes from someone who is very familiar with their platform and stances on issues. I am not some Kossak that just likes to blame Bibi for the sky falling - you know this.

      •  YB is not perfect but is NOT facist either (0+ / 0-)

        They understand the need to keep Yisrael Jewish.  A safe place for Jews to go to when the world turns against us (See rise of Anti-Semitism in Europe).  As such there is a need to keep Yisrael Jewish.

        I also question why noone ever mentions the land for the FICTIONAL (as in NEVER existed) state of Palestime that Jordan took.

        There is NEVER any outrage over this as the sole purpose is to drive Jews from the region!  This is why all the pro-pal talk is just dog-whistle HATE!  That is why a astrong party like YB is needed!

          who live in the Territories?

          The whole "Jordan is Palestine" thing is not right. Jordan is Jordan... Israel is Israel and the Occupied Territories should be in part a Palestinian State.

          Ehud Olmert had this one right. Part of the West Bank + land swaps are the only way this gets solved peacefully.
