Very revealing article and comments in feedback. Notice how people confuse the inculcating of "Jewish values" with "democratic values." This is a literal misreading of the article, which used the term "democratic values." Democratic values are universalist; they are about natural rights, not ethnicity or religion. The trends in Israeli society are toward fascism. This is why Palestinian citizens of Israel are under attack. The delusional nature of Israeli society at this moment in time lies in the unspoken wish to "cleanse" or to use an old Zionist canard, "transfer," the Palestinian citizens. Why? Because they exist and remind Israeli Jews that the birth of Israel came in and through the negation of the Palestinians as a people. Until Israelis can admit what occurred to plant a Jewish state in the middle of the Arab world and to admit the other that Israel expelled, Palestinians will always be a "threat," and Israeli Jews will always live in fear.
