Israel is no longer a light unto nations nor does it resemble Ben Gurion's Israel anymore. It is a nation where anyone who dares question the treatment of the Palestinians, the Israeli government, the actions of the IDF, or supports a settlement freeze and a two State solution is branded an enemy of Israel, an anti-semite, a self hater, who should be imprisoned or deported. A democracy does not behave this way and more and more Israel is morphing into a clone of Putin's Russia. Israel did not become the country it is by suppressing freedom of speech, expression, and thought and by descending into darkness the Israel of today is losing its soul where all critics are disparaged and calls for war against its neighbors prevail.
