Since Yeshayahu Leibowitz the term “fascist” is used on a regular basis by Jews to describe Israeli politics. The Likudniks are called totalitarians, the rabbis are called racists, our soldiers are called Judeo-Nazis. It is an inflationary term, used by polit-clowns who are playing verbal theatre in order to provoke but has nothing to do with reality. The fact that Burston can write what he wants belies him even more. If this government was fascist it would first and foremost silence the shmoks. The Germans called it “Gleichschaltung”, i.e. a tight control over all aspects of society. Each reader of Haaretz may judge himself how close we are to a totalitarian society.
