High-ranking Central Command officer sees attacks lasting for months, doesn't rule out further escalation; Ya'alon: Israel will expand West Bank fence.01:56 26.11.15 | 1 comments
There were 3 sponsors of the bill against "boycott speech". 1. Ze'ev Elkin: Grew up in Russia (to age 19) and is also religious. He represents two sectors of the right wing, Russians and Religion, people who object in principle to free speech. 2. Dalia Itzik: Born in Israel, but to a poor Iraqi family. Iraqi culture and free speech don't go together. (Check with Saddam, or any Arab country.) 3. Aryeh Eldad, son of Israel Eldad, chief ideologue of Lehi (Stern Gang). The man is a genuine hardliner, of the type that would have prevented the establishment of the state (by objecting to Partition), and assassinated people with different ideas (such as UN mediator Count Bernadott). Israeli democracy is now endangered by these elements which truly represent the Right Wing.
