    On the betrayal of the ideals of the French Revolution and the Power of Corruption William Blake wrote, " {France, France}, thou’rt bought and sold And sold is thy happy morrow; Thou gavest the tears of pity away In exchange for the tears of sorrow". Bibi conjures up imahes of 1938 oten. Using his own imagry he and Lieberman are recasting Israel's own "Sorrow and the Pity" (French: "Le Chagrin et la Pitié"), a 1969 documentary film by Marcel Ophüls about the French Resistance and collaboration and degeneration of French democracy by he Vichy government during World War II. The reasons include racism, fear and preservation of power at all costs Bibi is right., It is 1938 all over again. The gates of democracy are once more threatened by the tide of hate filled nationalism and religious fervor. With this new Lieberman -Netanyahu Axis of "strengyh, power. and firmness", we will soon no longer be able to tell the difference between "them" and us"
