To look at it in a scope, Israeli democracy, no matter it being left or right, is known as a dove! A dove that is very easy and could compromise no matter what.
But these easy going attitudes might as well harm Israel for what it is, a democracy. Many people, exteme left wing, anti-zionist and Arabs rally against the state and it harms Israel's intrest.
Especailly when a democratic nation allows reisdents in Kfar Qassam and Kfar Kana to hold Land day celebrations which they wave PLO flags. Another is the constant fear of going inside your own country, Israel, to arab cities that might be hostile....how can Umm El Farhm be dangerous city in Israel for the jews...is it a militant stranglehold?
Another part is that when we get bashed, we take it to the polls and sometimes the polls, being the world or us, does not really do any good to the nation...
so is Israeli democracy, hurting Israel itself?
