Haaretz: “Netanyahu is crazy”

ISRAEL (OBSERVATORY) – “From Natalie Portman to Iran, all the signs bet that there is a lack of space for the Israeli authorities,” the Israeli daily Haaretz was quoted as saying.

The Israeli daily Haaretz quoted Hannah Arendt, a German journalist and philosopher, as saying that insanity was a precondition for imposing a totalitarian regime.

The newspaper writes:

“Thanks to Twitter! Without the decision of this social media giant to suspend the account of Knesset MP Bezalel Smotrich, his tweet, in which he demanded that Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi be shot, preferably in the lap, would have passed almost unnoticed. Moreover, the total lack of reaction of the statesmen to the call of a deputy who had asked the Israeli military to commit what is essentially a war crime was not only shameful, but rather a sign among others betraying the madness in which Israeli statesmen are suddenly sinking. In addition, no one has forgotten the hysterical reaction of the Israelis to Natalie Portman’s decision to boycott the Genesis Award ceremony to protest the crackdown on demonstrations in the Gaza Strip. What if it is not the sign of a generalized madness? The Israelis also heard the call of a Likud MP, Oren Hazan, demanding that Natalie Portman be stripped of her Israeli nationality. For political observers, all these signs indicate that the Israeli authorities are missing a box. In such an environment, it is hard to believe that decisions on the most important issues are made in a logical and reasonable manner. What if it is not the sign of a generalized madness?

Is it really normal that Iran-obsessed Benyamin Netanyahu is pushing Donald Trump to give up the nuclear deal despite opposition from the international community and the risk of a regional war? Is it normal for the Israeli Defense Minister to directly threaten Russia, as Avigdor Lieberman did on Tuesday, as if Vladimir Putin did not have a minimal military capacity as is the case? Hamas and Mahmoud Abbas?

This folly can be attributed to the paranoia of a prime minister who tries to evade his indictment or the cumulative effects of 50 years of denial of an occupation that still exists under the nose of Israel. However, the symptoms of this madness are not confined to a single geographical area. Since Donald Trump took office in the United States, everyone has to pinch each passing day to make sure his scandalous tweets are real and not a nightmare that repeats itself regularly.”

Haaretz’s article , published on Tuesday, April 24, continues:

“It remains to be seen whether it is a collective virus or a disease that is intentionally propagated for malicious purposes, because madness, after all, is one of the prerequisites for the imposition of a totalitarian regime. Totalitarian movements attempt to represent a coherent world, more adapted to the needs of the human mind, even more adapted than reality itself.

A day will come when the public will be tired of this dementia imposed by the regime and reject it.”

Haaretz finally concluded that Benyamin Netanyahu was known to “distort facts, deceive and fabulate”.
