Netanyahu’s big mistake was caving in to the Covid Cult


PROTEST marches in Israel have generated many headlines this past week

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently proposed significant judicial reform for the country, provoking much hyperbolic indignation. Centred on decreasing the court’s power over the Knesset (parliament) as well as granting government control over the appointment of judges, this is vitally needed to restore some sense of political balance.

Much as in Britain, Israel’s judiciary is dominated by the left. So too are the establishment media, outraged that Israelis had the temerity to vote yet again last November for Netanyahu, a perspective shared by their global counterparts. Despite being mired in corruption charges, he still managed to win 64 Knesset seats out of 120. The mainstream media’s animosity towards the Likud Party leader is such that it neglected to report on a recent counter-demonstration of more than 100,000 Israelis in support of judicial reform. 

Claims that the reform will cause Israel to descend into a theocracy are woefully misguided, as are accusations that the new coalition government is ‘far-right’, an insult hurled by the left at their ideological enemies. These protests have little to do with judicial reform or Israel’s obtuse responses to Covid-19, and everything to do with a giant temper tantrum by the Israeli and global left. Even the troublesome ‘override clause’ does not warrant such remonstration.  

Netanyahu’s much-needed judicial reform has now been stymied by the protests. Sadly, Israelis have shown that they are no better than Britons when it comes to capitulation to enemies. Anti-Semitic NGOs operating in the Jewish state, financed by organisations including the United Nations, the Quakers and European Union, have inflamed the protesters in their attempts to bring down Netanyahu and his government.  Aligned with them are ‘progressive’ US Jewish associations such as the insidious J-Street, which is funded by George Soros’s Open Society Foundation. J-Street’s rage against Israel is matched only by its unhinged hatred of conservative politicians such as Netanyahu.

US President Joe ‘Beijing’ Biden has capitalised on this collective anti-Israel agenda. He is obsessed with the Jewish state and not in a good way, given the Democratic Party’s endemic anti-Semitism and appeasement of Israel’s enemy, Iran. He has led the global left in condemning Netanyahu, a favoured ‘villain’. Biden’s assertion that the judicial reforms are undemocratic is deceitful, especially when considering that the US government appoints its own judiciary. His true motivation, underpinned by irrational Jew hatred, is to weaken Israel’s governing coalition. A government torn apart by internal strife will lack the much needed resources to rally against the Democrats’ surrender to the mullahs of Tehran. 

The protesters and their enablers are wrong. The real threat to Israel’s democracy has already happened. Where were all these protesters when Israel’s democracy slipped away in March 2020? In lockstep with most of the world, Netanyahu stupidly instigated Covid-19 lockdowns and mass vaccinations on the instructions of Israel’s enemies at the World Health Organisation. Thanks to these policies the Israeli left, like its comrades in the West, is now empowered, and probably unstoppable. Netanyahu’s fatal mistake was not his judicial reform but his capitulation to the Covid Cult.
