    Netanyahu is the person throwing kerosene on the right wing extremists and then when something bad happens he tries to distance himself from it. He remained silent at his own political rallies when people held up posters of Rabin in a Gestapo uniform and never spoke out about the demonization of Rabin and Rabin lost his life. It is Netanyahu who planted the seeds for the right wing extremism that is enveloping Israel now. Haaretz is a left wing site. On other Israeli sites posters praised the price tag terrorists and the ones who said they should also go after left wing Israelis and burn their houses and property received dozens of posts agreeing with them. Israel has a leader now that has encouraged extremist behaviour that will soon result in an act so heinous that it will cause a conflagration in the region and many innocent people on both sides will pay the price. Netanyahu has encouraged the right wing extremism that is growing every week and unless the maddness is stopped now much worse things are going to happen. Leaders who encourage hatred against anyone who does not agree with them are not fit to serve. They bring out the worst in their people as Netanyahu is doing now.
