    Bradley, you have hit the nail on the head! Lieberman is the incarnation of all values diametrically opposed to those espoused by a democratically-anchored State. He is the epitome of the fascist philosophy come alive under the guise of nationalism - how well do we remember those demagogues of the not so distant past who employed the same ruses and cloaked themselves in the same mantle of ultra-conservative and exclusionary policies while appealing to the dormant fears and paranoia of a great segment of society - particularly in the special circumstances existing in Israel. It is heartening, though, to see that even Israel's right is slowly awakening to the very real threat that Liebermann is posing to Democracy and to Israel. Hopefully measures will be taken soon to curb him and his outrageous and destructive stampede towards racist and fascist implementation of measures which would lead to the destruction of what so many before him have fought and died for and what Ben-Gurion and the founders had envisioned in the Declaration of Independence: a State of Israel based on democratic values administered to ALL of its citizens.
