Here are only the latest warning signs:
Last week, the Likud party elected a list of candidates for Knesset that is as close to the party's virulently right-wing component, "Jewish Leadership" ("Manhigut Yehudit"), as it is to party leader, Binyamin Netanyahu.
Here's just a sample of what "Jewish Leadership", led by Moshe Feiglin, a Likud candidate for Knesset, stands for:
- Stage one: Israel's annexation of the West Bank and the denial of all civil rights to its Palestinian population (while maintaining Palestinian "human rights", we are told!).
- Stage two: State-sponsored "encouragement" of Palestinian emigration.
- Stage three: The eventual expulsion of all Palestinians from Israel/Palestine when this becomes "feasible".
But "Jewish Leadership" is not the only manifestation of Jewish racism in Israel.
