    hope it works & leads to something better

    Meanwhile, more delightful news from the Israeli right from yesterday's protest:

    The ill-will felt towards the Israeli left could be gaged well among the group of right-wing protesters that the police corralled in a separate part of the plaza. They continually shouted “Death to the leftists” and expressed hope that “a rocket from Gaza” would kill them. In addition they merrily sang “Why is there no school in Gaza? Because no more kids are left.” Some protesters tried to convince this group to stop singing these songs as they were detrimental to the message of support for the IDF that they were trying to promote, but to no avail.
    this is from the Forward. Is this a reliable source? It's shocking.

      WTF, I knew Israel was full of hardliners but I didn't know they had the same incipient fascist problem as us.

        That's the same toxic soil that 20th Century European fascism grew from.  Add religion and it only gets worse.

        Domestic politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.
