- Democracy is a pretty crummy, dangerous form of government.
- It's the rule of idiots.
- The majority isn't always right.
That's making me very nervous concerning the upcoming Israeli Elections.
- It's frequently totally wrong.
Jewish History is full of incorrect majority decisions. In the Bible ten out of twelve tribal leaders decided that it was too dangerous to enter the HolyLand causing the forty years (minimum) of wandering in the wilderness.
European Jewish leaders, both rabbinic and secular, in the 1930's recommended staying put as the Nazi anti-Semitic holocaust crept in eventually causing the death of at least six million Jews.
These aren't the only examples in Jewish and secular history.
The Israeli Left, Herzog, Livni, the media and the Obama government have been doing their best in a well-funded campaign to dump the Likud's Binyamin Netanyahu, and if voter turnout from the Left is high, they may succeed, G-d forbid.
I am not a great fan of Bibi's but he is the best we have right now to lead the country.
The only way to save the country right now is to get out and vote for Likud, Bayit Yehudi or Yachad.
