Arab voters will ‘shake the security’ of the state — Netanyahu undermines Israel’s p.r. | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Arab voters will ‘shake the security’ of the state — Netanyahu undermines Israel’s p.r.

An Israeli actor and anchor named Rotem Sela expressed civil courage beyond the call of duty earlier this week when she attacked Minister Miri Regev directly and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu indirectly, writing:

“[W]hen in hell will someone in this government tell the public that Israel is the state of all its citizens. And that all people were born equal. And the Arabs, God have mercy, are humans. As are the Druze. And the gays, by the way, and the lesbians, and also – shock – the leftists.”

By writing these words, even as the Likud and its supporters bombard the public against the very idea of a government including the Palestinian-Israeli parties, Sela showed considerably more courage than that shown by the three former Army Chiefs of Staff and the TV personality who lead what purports to be the main opposition party, Blue White. Naturally, as soon as Sela dared to write her abominable heresy, she received the well-known right-wing treatment. No death threats have been reported yet, but surely they’re on their way. Solidarity, Rotem, and be strong. One hell of a shit hydrant is turned your way, but take comfort in the fact we’re in an election season, and it will be soon turned somewhere else.
