Israel today is acting in a fashion many would deem 'fascist' but it is not classic Fascism as there is no regimentation of society, labor and industry. Israel is merely engaged in massive and repulsively right-wing behavior. The religious right riots with impunity, Settlers commit any crime they desire against Palestinians, while peaceful demonstrators are clubbed. Such behavior is not the result of a government pulling the strings, but rather a government which cannot even restrain the most virulent, violent and puerile elements of the societies ultra-right. Israel is not turning 'Fascist'. Rather it is a society which has acquiesced to it's most depraved and degenerate elements. Israel has become an asylum run by it's inmates because no one else can or will run it.
