not a democrat. Although Israel is not officially a religious state. By declaring itself a Jewish state it is just that a religious state. Slowly, but surely religion has taken over in Israel. Also history shows us that an occupying state becomes arrogant. We should also remember, that a large number of the people that McCarthy persecuted were Jews. It was easy for him to hide his hatred of Jews behind the mask of calling them communists. McCarthy like the right wing in Israel uses fear as an instrument to galvanize the populous to their cause. Netanyahu uses the Iranian nuclear syndrome in this manner. Israel is now under siege from all it's friends. When the people realize that little Israel can't fight the whole world, they WILL rise up, and halt Israels slide to McCarthyism in its track.
