Although Israel has stockpiled nuclear weapons and it attacks and kills the Palestinians on a daily basis, the world powers do not intervene to stop Israel's crimes, it said.
Israel promotes Arab hatred, it spurns rule of law principles and other democratic values, and prioritizes war for regional dominance, it said.
Netanyahu heads Israel's most extremist ever government. He exceeds the worst of Ariel Sharon and previous hardline leaders. He's unfit to serve. He spurns democratic values. He deplores peace. He menacingly threatens to wage war against others, it said.
Israel wages intermittent war on Gaza. It murders innocent civilians. It uses illegal depleted uranium, chemical and other weapons. Nuclear missiles and bombs are stockpiled. It plans more war now, it said.
Lieberman is an ultranationalist extremist. He represents the worst of Israel's lunatic fringe. Critics call him an embarrassment to legitimate government.
Lieberman is a modern-day Kananist. Kahane headed Israel's racist Kach Party. In 1988, Israel banned it. It was too extreme to tolerate. In his youth, Lieberman was a Kach Party member. He remains true to its ideological roots.
As long as these rogues govern Israel, Palestinians face horrific persecution short of total expulsion or outright extermination. But those possibilities can't be ruled out, the think tank said.
On October 25, Haaretz headlined "Netanyahu, Lieberman to unify parties ahead of upcoming Israeli elections.
Netanyahu may have a "super-party" in mind too strong to unseat. He'll have more latitude to further his destructive, hardline agenda. Lieberman will be his second in command. Together they menace Arabs, Jews, and others alike.
Netanyahu heads Likud. It's hardline, anti-democratic, racist and militant party. Founded in 1973, it united the right wing revisionist Herut party with Gahal and centrist Zionist parties. Its former prime ministers included Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir, Netanyahu (during his 1996 - 1999 tenure), and Ariel Sharon.
In 1999, Lieberman founded Yisrael Beiteinu "(Israel is Our Home)". It is "ultranationalist and revisionist Zionist" party. It represents the worst of Israel's hardline right wing.
This is especially troubling since the federal government has conducted more warrantless surveillance over the past two years than the entire previous decade. This court decision can only be expected to increase that already troubling number.
Federal judge blocks FBI's attempts to hold back information on troubling surveillance program ~ link ~ It's good to know that at least one federal judge values the US Constitution. Stirling
