It is clear that this guy intended to do exactly what Carlo and Bradley have accused him of - stifle opposing views to the official line and demonise anyone who engages in the active promotion of dissenting views. In my opinion he is a true McArthyite and has admitted as much. His blending of government policy and the legitimacy of the state is a tired play to the angst that seems to permeate modern Israel and which is driving the state's drift to the right and, in my opinion, 'far' right.
