I've been reading Baseless Hatred- What It Is and What You Can Do about It by Rene H Levy, Publisher: Gefen Publishing House in order to review it. The media-supported anti-government demonstrations don't appear to be related to "social justice." Actually, they seem to demonstrate more "baseless hatred." In an In Jerusalem-Jerusalem Post article, Pushing the boundaries By SETH J. FRANTZMAN, which I can't access online because it's in their pay-for Premium category, there's a quotation by a protester:
Seri thinks that one solution might be withdrawal from the west Bank. "If we leave the territories, the country will have more money to take care of the people. A different government, I think, might be willing to leave the Palestinian areas."Duh!? How would that save money and make housing cheaper? Just before that, Seri complained about housing costs:
Seri, who is an engineer, thinks the solution is "to open the lands and lower the taxes."How could shrinking the available land and adding more people in need of homes fit his solution? That's a recipe for higher prices. And considering what it is costing Israel to defend itself in the south after banishing Jews from Gush Katif and giving it to the Arabs, how can anyone think that expelling hundreds of thousand of Jews from their homes in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley would improve Israel's financial situation? And I'm not even going to get started on the security situation...
Even worse, more proof that there's baseless hatred behind all of these faux social justice demonstrations. My Israel, a right wing group tried to join on the condition that the National Anthem, Hativka would be sung, but the organizers refused.
I heard the reaction of their protest leaders when some Israeli Right tried to join, and I was horrified. They were rabidly opposed. It was pure hatred. Even the journalist interviewing them seemed surprised and tried to get a logical reason why they were restricting their demonstrations.
This news report gives an idea of how the Left-wing protest leaders aren't interested in anyone who doesn't follow their party line. Of course the clip gives the impression that the government is spending money on housing in the yishuvim. That's false, but the picutes are powerful.
I'm pretty sure I heard it on the radio and can't find anything to link as proof. If you can help, please add it in the comments. by chance I found something, but I'm still looking for more. Thanks
