Various passages of Alexis de Tocqueville’s unfinished work The European Revolution, where he discusses France under Napoleon and Rome under Augustus Caesar, indicate that Israel, especially under the reign of Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu, approximates a democratically elected despotism!
At best, public opinion is no guide.
Since 30 and more parties compete in Israeli national elections, and since 8 parties win seats in the Knesset, Israel has never had a majority party at the helm of state!
As a consequence, and virtually unknown to Israeli political scientists, who may simply be steeped in the political complacency, no vivid normative public opinion really exists in this country. This means that the Government of Israel has no clear and coherent national purpose conceptually and existentially related to Israel’s Jewish heritage. Hence the Government stumbles along, pursuing improvised and placid, if not docile policies toward friends and foes.
Israel’s enemies are therefore free to pursue their designs against the Jewish state with hardly any concern about Israel’s reaction, since Israel’s timid government rarely takes the initiative in foreign affairs, leaving the public in a mental fog.
In other words, the Government of Israel has given our enemies a free ride. Israel’s Prime Minister hardly needs to worry about public opinion in this country. This was shockingly evident on June 14, 2009 when Mr. Netanyahu endorsed the creation of a Muslim Arab state on the land of Israel without a whisper of protest from the brainwashed sheeple of Israel.
This passivity, nay, servility, has been the modus operandi in Israel since 1993, when the Rabin Government recognized Yasser Arafat’s PLO. And this servility has been entrenched and unshakable since 1995, when Netanyahu became PM and passively adopted the inane and insane policy of “territory for peace” with the PLO, the murderous disciples of Muhammad.
At worst: despotism and brainwashing
The brainwashed sheeple of Israel, lacking a government with any clear and coherent national policy rooted in the Jewish heritage, and having no political analysts to warn them of the consequences of this ideological void, have become amenable to prime ministerial dictatorship. This became transparent on June 14, 2009 when PM Netanyahu, without Knesset or public debate, endorsed the creation of a Muslim state on the holy land of the Jewish people without a whisper of public protest from this brainwashed people, including its orthodox religious Jews!
In view of his endorsement of a Muslim-Arab state in the land of Israel without any discernible public protest from the brainwashed people of Israel, there is virtually nothing Netanyahu need fear doing for the sake of his peace process, including sharing sovereignty over Jerusalem with the Palestinian Authority!
