    Is fascitization of society and a fascist regime the same? Are the encating of certain discriminatory laws in the frame of a bitter national conflict racism? European countries are enacting discriminatory laws and are leaning to the right. Those are ugly discriminatory laws , however, that is far away from fascism and from a racist regime. IN Israel and Europe the populations are shifting to the right because they are fed out of multiculturalism and of group rights to minorities. Neither Israel nor European countries will go through fascist revolutions that will drop away the liberal state. The minimum preconditions for fascism do not exist. The whole fascist elephant is simply non existent. Golan and the likes will be free to protest and claim whatever they want, here and Europe. However, they indeed have a problem and that is that the great majority of the population are fed up with their discourse.
