From Stuxnet to Nyet

Forget Iran, Hizbullah, or any of the other armed-and-raring-to-go hostile countries and terrorist organizations. According to Peace Now’s Director-General, the biggest threat to Israel is…Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman.

Thousands of activists from left-wing movements and human rights organizations marched in Tel Aviv on Saturday in protest of the Knesset’s decision to set up a committee of inquiry to probe the funding sources of leftist groups.

The protest march, under the headline “Demonstration (since it’s still possible) for democracy”, left from Tel Aviv’s Meir Park toward the plaza in front of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, where a rally took place in which Knesset members from Kadima, Meretz, and Hadash as well as officials from Peace Now and human rights groups delivered speeches.

Protesters chanted in support of democracy and free speech, and carried signs with slogans such as “Awaiting Democracy”, “Danger! End of Democracy Ahead”, “Fighting the Government of Darkness” and “Democracy is Screaming for Help”.

Peace Now Director-General Yariv Oppenheimer said during the rally that “the Lieberman threat” is more serious than the Iranian threat.

“The Lieberman threat should worry us all. It is a greater threat than Iran. We must go out and protest,” said Oppenheimer.

If only Israel could invent something like Stuxnet to deal with this stupidity and moral bankruptcy.

  1. When it comes to Israel, this is what bugs me most about my fellow lefties. Just a little rational perspective would suggest that Hamas, Hezzbolah and their buddies the Iranians are far worse than the Israeli foreign minister. I'm with the left on tax policy, gun control, reasonable banking regulation and other government intervention of business practices, stopping the wars started by that bloody, bloody George W. Bush….but when it comes to Israel, I'm in a different place. A nice place. A place where everybody knows your name. A place they sings songs about.

    1. Most of Israel is leftist economically. Only Likud and parts of YB and Kadima are anywhere near market liberalism ("right").

      1. So you're saying there is some hope for our good friends the Israelis after all. But aren't there also political hillbillies in Israel, too? You know, the kind of folks that lack critical thinking skills and are reactive by nature like those in the American tea party movement.
