Innocent and angelic victim (and to this I would add that self-criticism is not one of the strengths of the Arab countryside). The foreign reader is unaware that the Country Email List Israeli extreme right with which Netanyahu has allied himself is of a different nature from the parties that usually receive that qualification in Europe. Itamar Ben-Gvir, leader of the far-right Otzma Country Email List Yehudit (Jewish Force) party, had a portrait of Baruch Goldstein in his house until recently. Goldstein was an American doctor who, while living in the colony of Kiryat Arba (Hebron), murdered 29 Muslims who were praying in the Cave of the Patriarchs. Ben-Gvir, for his part, is a lawyer and defends Country Email List Jewish terrorists and perpetrators of hate crimes. The Lehava organization, closely associated with Otzma Country Email List Yehudit, has as its mission to prevent interfaith marriages and the mixing of "races". Israel's president, Reuben Rivlin, someone who however cannot be said to have the left at heart, has historically described Lehava's attacks on interfaith marriages in no uncertain terms: members of that movement, he Country Email List has said , are like "rodents undermining Israel's Jewish and democratic common foundation from within ". Likewise, Lehava makes public (in order to expose them to shame) the names of Country Email List Jews who rent houses to Arabs. Such an ideology is comparable only to that of the American Deep South of the early 20th century. Netanyahu has become his natural political ally and has thus Country Email List veered towards the most extreme forms of right-wing radicalism. These groups fan the flames of civil war by spreading racism within Israeli society, shouting "death to the Arabs." It is necessary to underline that these groups do not represent the whole of Israeli civil society, whose members have Country Email List worked very hard to create bridges between Jewish and Arab societies. Mordechai Cohen, director of the Ministry of the Interior, posted on his Facebook page a video reminding the Israeli Country Email List public of the many patient years of work his ministry has devoted to integrating Arabs into Israeli society and creating deep ties between both populations.
