Alan Elsner stated that Netanyahu is undermining ‘core democratic principles.’ Let’s look at that from the perspective President Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms.”
1-Freedom of Speech-in the last dozen years in Israel over 500 new podcasts were created. No media outlet has been shut down and Haaretz among others, hits on Netanyahu daily.
2-Freedom of Religion-All religions are accepted; a far cry when the Arabs destroyed synagogues in the Middle East and now constantly persecute minorities.
3-Freedom of Assembly-Israeli Arabs are marching daily against the regime.
4-Freedom from Want and Fear-Israel has the highest standard of living in the Middle East. Jews rightfully have never been without fear in the last two milleniums.
AIPAC as opposed to J Street will support any Israeli government. True lovers of Israel are not carrying the weight of American politics unto Israeli shores.
