Netanyahu has been demonized like no other politician in Israel’s 74-year history. And for the past 30 years, no politician has come close to Netanyahu in terms of public support. For 30 years, the establishment media have waged a war-to-the-death against Netanyahu, the most popular politician in Israel and its most visionary statesman.
Insisting that new elections would be the ruin of the country, Bennett betrayed his voters and formed a post-Zionist government with the left and with the Muslim Brotherhood party. He now clings to power with a minority coalition that cannot pass basic legislation. These are Bennett’s Orwellian two minutes’ hate. And if they go on, and if the media continues to participate, then together with Netanyahu’s trial, they will be the death of Israel’s democracy.
