In the 12 yrs I lived in Israel, it was weak then. It is even weaker now. It has never, in the history of the country, had any influence whatsoever and it is more reviled today.As more Jews in the diaspora become increasingly disenchanted and alienated from Israel, Israel has consistently turned to the right. The only moment in the country's history, where there was an outcry against the actions and brutality of the military was in the mass demonstration in Tel Aviv protesting Israel's role in the Sabra/Chatilla massacre during the Lebanon War. Now such people are considered fifth columnists and they would be silenced, if they were there to protest at all today.
