They always fret about how "Israel is losing it's democratic character". This is a quote from a New York Time Editorial:
http://www.haaretz.com/news/national...-lost-1.452639“One of Israel’s greatest strengths is its origins as a democratic state committed to liberal values and human rights. Those basic truths are in danger of being lost,” the newspaper says
I have news to them. If what they say is true, then they and their ilk bear the greatest guilt for that trend. I say this from personal experience. In my younger days, I used to be a lot more of what they tend to describe as free thinking "liberals". Now, thanks to the unfair treatment that these so called progressives have been dishing out to Israel, particularly since 1967, they drove a whole generation of us into the arms of the right wing. And they can put this into their pockets. I am glad they did. Because I consider the centre right to be on the side of common sense. And the ilk of the New York times are the extremists.
Just my opinion.
