The nation of Israel is fast approaching a critical point in its history as forces of right wing anti-Muslim hatred seek to gain control and force their nation to be outcast from the world. Labor leader and Defense Minister Ehud Barak said his party would seriously consider an offer from prime minister designate Benjamin Netanyahu to join his Cabinet. Barak said the good of the nation might require his party to join with right wing groups that have absolutely nothing in common with historic Labor views on Israel relations with Arab nations. Netanyahu is offering Labor some seats in the Cabinet, but in becoming part of this coalition, Barak risks associating his party with right wing demagogue Avigdor Lieberman who is hated in the Arab world and not respected in Europe or, most probably, in the United States.
MK Shelly Yacimovich, said aligning with Netanyahu risks giving a seal of approval to “the worst government in the country’s history” and most probably will result in the end of the Labor party. Which way, Labor, join a right wing group bent on destroying Israel’s reputation in the world or standing apart and hoping to make the people of Israel aware of dangers facing their country with Netanyaju and Lieberman in charge?
