More murdering land thieves (they call themselves "Settlers") get picked up.

Police detain six more suspects over extremist settler rampage in Huwara.

Sadly Benji will likely make sure that they only get a slap on the wrist.

Israel's liberal supporters speak out against Netanyahu, but they're still in denial.

When the New York Times featured an opinion article by billionaire Michael Bloomberg this week, it harmonized with a crescendo of other recent pleas from prominent American supporters of Israel. Bloomberg warned that Israel's new governing coalition is trying to give parliament the power to "overrule the nation's Supreme Court and run roughshod over individual rights, including on matters such as speech and press freedoms, equal rights for minorities and voting rights." Such a change would, Bloomberg added, undermine Israel's "strong commitment to freedom."

Strong commitment to freedom? That would sure be news to the more than 5 million Palestinian people living under Israeli occupation in Gaza and the West Bank.

The pretense is that what's happening now with Israel amounts to a surprising aberration from its natural state. At times, the denial even rests on the tacit and absurd assumption that Jews are less inclined to commit atrocities than any other people. But recent events in Israel are continuing a long Zionist process that has been propelled by mixtures of a valid yearning for safety and extreme ethnocentrism, with terrible results....

While Benji is pushing to be V3.0 will the people let him? Here's an opinion on the question from inside.

Netanyahu Is Leading Israel to Civil War?

For almost three months straight, Israelis have been protesting in the streets with steadily increasing fervor against the government's proposed "judicial reform"—or what the opposition calls a "legislative coup." The so-called reform proposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his coalition partners would give members of Israel's government the power to overturn rulings by the Supreme Court, collapsing the separation of powers. For the protestors, which include myself and many others not affiliated with the Left, this would fundamentally undermine Israel's democratic character....

Would be dictator, Benji, is having trouble on his way to authoritarian rule.

Is Netanyahu trying to pivot security apparatus to side by demonizing anti-reformists?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu upped the ante on the conflict within Israel’s security forces on Sunday when he directly called on the various security chiefs to support his policies in the face of opposition.

Of course, Netanyahu framed the order he issued in terms of IDF chief-of-staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi cracking down on IDF soldiers “refusing.”

Netanyahu framed the order he issued in terms of IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Herzi Halevi cracking down on soldiers’ “refusing.” To Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) Director Ronen Bar, he framed it in terms of cracking down on incitement to violence against the prime minister and other ministers.

His verbiage regarding the police was that they should prevent anti-Netanyahu protesters from blocking highways.

All of the security chiefs in one way or another were being called on to help him “fight the anarchists” and restore regular life in the country.....
Why is it that the real "anarchists" of this world keep on blaming their oppositions for being such?

Terrorist and wannabe dictator, Benji, (just like others of his ilk) can't admit to where the real blame lies.

Netanyahu said to slam Herzog, holding him responsible for potential civil war.

Even Joe had words for him.

Biden voices concern over judicial overhaul in ‘candid’ phone call with Netanyahu.

Benji just won't learn as he continues on his perilous journey.

Knesset panel to resume vote on reservations to judicial appointments bill on Sunday.

Netanyahu seeks to soothe U.S. concerns over settlement law repeal.

But some are getting fed up with him and his ways.

PM’s failure to secure calm on Israeli front hastens inevitable breakdown in US ties.

Palestinians and Israelis clash at UN over Netanyahu actions.

Quite frankly Benji and his mob are nothing more than murdering thieves who need to be brought to justice.

I wonder if crooked little Benji was expecting that reception.

Protesters greet Netanyahu as he meets U.K. leader in London.

But will Sunak pull him up or just ignore his murderous and thieving ways?

It's not just the people of Israel telling Benji to stop.

Halt Israel legal reform, urges defence minister.

And the president's proposal explored.

I don't think that that will be enough Benji to quell the unrest.

About time some movement was made.

Democrats Pressure Biden to Shift U.S. Policy Toward Israel.

President Joe Biden is facing pressure from members of his own party to "undertake a shift in U.S. policy" to investigate Israel's new far-right government, according to a draft of a letter obtained by Newsweek.

The letter, written by Democratic Representative Jamaal Bowman, urges "immediate action" against the administration of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose cabinet members "are pushing repressive, anti-democratic policies and escalating violence towards the Palestinian population."

So far, it has been signed by nine other congressional progressives, including Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Cori Bush, Summer Lee, Andre Carson and Betty McCollum, as well as Senator Bernie Sanders, who is mustering support for the effort in his chamber. A spokesperson from Bowman's office confirmed the details of the letter to Newsweek.

The undated letter comes as Netanyahu is facing protests at home over his plans to overhaul Israel's judiciary, which would grant more power to the nation's parliament and remove some of the courts' oversight of the governing body. It would give the party in power, which currently is Netanyahu's Likud, greater authority.....

It's not the celebration that Benji the terrorist expects as the protests continue on.

Israelis protest legal changes before nation's 75th birthday.

An analysis wonders.

Has Netanyahu divorced himself from US Jewry?

If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s goal was to sever the already frayed cord between Israel and United States Jewry, then so far, he is doing an excellent job.

There is nothing that speaks to the disconnect between his government and the largest Jewish Diaspora community than Netanyahu’s decision Sunday to cancel his participation in the Jewish Federation of North America’s annual convention, known as the General Assembly, which this year is meeting in Tel Aviv.....
Is Benji afraid of hearing things that he doesn't like?
