Israeli “Intellectuals”: Bibi Netanyahu Causes Anti-Semitism
A letter signed by some 30 leftist academicians, artists and Israel Prize winners urges Labor Party members to quit the coalition, arguing that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government encourage anti-Semitism and endanger world Jews.
“Netanyahu is the center of the far Right’s bad wind, which encourages anti-Semitism, endangers Jews in the world, and threatens to raze Israel,” the letter read.
The letter says that Labor’s presence in the government serves as a fig leaf for Israel’s current government, charging that “Netanyahu is the man who enforced party discipline for the sake of ruining democracy in establishing a Knesset hunting party to pursue civilians.”
The letter’s signatories charge that Netanyahu encourages what they term “racist Knesset legislation” and add that “Netanyahu government funds subsidize inciting rabbis and their ministers.” Both the Labor Party and Kadima must stand up to Israel’s “dangerous regime,” the letter read.
