Bibi Netanyahu will undoubtedly become the next prime minister of the state of Israel. Of course, he will become prime minister and completely lack any concern about one out of five citizens of this country because they are of the Muslim or Christian religion. He sunk to the lowest form of politics in his quest for power. Throughout the campaign he appealed to the forces of hate in Israel who simply do not regard anyone other than a Jew as a human being. I hate to make this analogy, but exactly what was different from the Nazi claim that Jews were a lower race than Netanyahu depicting Palestinians as lacking the qualities of human beings. He argued they were lower forms of people.
President Obama spoke the truth: “The United States and this administration are deeply concerned about the rhetoric that seeks to marginalize Arab Israel citizens” and undermines the democratic process. I am certain many American Jews support Netanyahu. The problem is that it is impossible to be a Jew and hate Arabs. I realize Bibi wants to wait out Obama and expect the next American president will just love his hate. Will that person believe that hate is the path toward Middle East peace?
