    This is very Orwellian. It doesn't take rocket science to understand that there is no democracyvin Israel anymore than there is anywhere on the ME. Israel Beitenu led by the money launderer bouncer can be credited w/bringing the Soviet Union to Israel. What a shame, really, to want to discredit the most enlightened segment of the population which is trying to hold its country to account on such issues as torture, and ethical treatment. Since when does a Jewish state become synonymous w/ a fascist state? It's a slippery slope and I hope the bill will be resoundingly defeated. And to want to expose how each member votes! Oy vey! I am disappointed w/Dany Dannon, I thought he was a bright light, I am clearly mistaken. What is happening to Israel is Kafkaesque? Do they not see this? It really makes me sad. A very tarnished light unto the nations.
