The Voice of The People is The Voice of God
Are you already fed up with your voice disappearing as soon as you have sent your representative to represent you in any government forum? I am sure you are or just about to be.
The majority of people in Israel, as well as the USA, strongly disapprove of the performance job their governments do. In the USA, it is just about 20% of the entire population that still think the government is doing a good job. In Israel, the winds of dismay in the way the government has been conducting itself are blowing strong. There are clear indications that there is a growing distrust of the way the government has handled itself these past twenty years.
The Israeli oligarchy, mainly with liberal-Leftist ideology is now facing growing opposition. These governments do not represent the people as they should and in fact, they make the people's life rather miserable. Most people find the people at the top to be self serving individuals with rather miniscule concern to what is happening to the person in the street.
The government system in Israel is a democracy. Democracy, is generally defined as a form of government in which all adult citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. Ideally, this includes equal, and more or less direct, participation in the proposal, development and passage of legislation into law. It can also encompass social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of Political self determination.
The majority of Israelis agree that their government does not follow the description of a democracy. As the picture is unraveling at present in Israel, for the past two decades, the dominant force, rather undemocratic, has been the Left that had brought about, intentionally, tens of thousands of "victims of peace." They have imported to the land of Israel genocidal terrorists and approve them a new nationally, "Palestinians," which did not exist before 1967. thus took away the right of the real Palestinians, the Jews, the right to the land.
They signed meaningless and disastrous agreement with these beasts, thus gave them the right of way to kill Jews and demand land for themselves from underneath the Jewish nation's feet. That land does not belong to them, however, each concession the failing government of Israel made to the terrorists, gathered under the Palestinians Authority entity, the more ground of demands they gained. And the world went along with the terrorists, supporting them with every mean possible. That was not the case of the world's attitude towards Israel, which was and is far less supportive, in fact hostile.
What took place in Israel, during these past two decades, is inculcated pain and suffering on every level. The Arab jihad, the Left brought to the land of Israel, killed and wounded many. For the land concessions Israel made, in order to have peace, thousands of productive Israelis became homeless, overnight, and many have not recovered from their uprooting. The government's actions demoralized the nation and have brought to the surface many questions; the credibility of the government has been tarnished and the trust in it dwindled.
And what was the cost to the Arab-"Palestinians" for the government of Israel's irrational and ambiguous, rather schizophrenic actions? A simple gain. They in fact were encouraged by the way the Israeli leadership acted and have worsened Israel's position in the international arena.
Domestically, the Jewish nation has disunited in regards to the way the nation needs to act in the war the Arabs have lunched on Israel for the past 63 years and even before. Many now woke up to realize that the Israeli leadership promised peace was a mirage, a delusion they bought into and dragged the entire nation into with disastrous consequences. What did the Arab-"Palestinians" do to comply with their agreements with Israel?
Not only that they have not begun the peace process, not only that they have not comply with one clause in the Agreements, they began a systematic and extensive political and media terrorism against Israel. They have launched a successful delegitimization campaign against Israel to which many all over the world have joined. Along their demands and whims, they have controlled the non existing, and in and of meaningless "peace process's" negotiations they held with several, consecutive, Israeli leadership and have left the Israeli public behind to ponder, what is happening to us?
Since the Oslo Accords, which was signed on the White House lawn on 13 September 1993 and the Road Map, its closing statement was made at the Red Sea Summit in Aqaba, Jordan, on June 24, 2002, no USA administration, neither the rest of the world, have ever punished the Arab-"Palestinians" for their vile behavior, for their terrorism and ongoing killing of Jews.
But most important, they have utterly ignored and have not complied with any and all of what they have agreed to and signed for, agreements that were and are still so greatly revered by all the nations who pressured the parties, especially Israel, to sign for.
The non-existing peace partner the world designated for Israel, and Israel went along with, kept on its wretched behavior for which it was and is rewarded. On the other hand, Israel, that complied with the agreements, and beyond, all with the hope in the heart of every Israeli that peace will come to fruition, was reprimanded, pressured and punished for, even isolated by the International community.
The delusional "peace process" the Israel government began with the Oslo Accords have released worldwide anti-Semitism sentiments and brought to surface the eternal hate of Jews that was somewhat concealed since WWII.
Nothing good came from neither the Oslo Accords or the Road Map. It was a financial and emotional waste in which Israel invested great resources and much energy. These two agreements turned to be Israel's punishment. Israel had and is being condemned, reprimanded and constantly pressured by the powers of the world to comply with what her partner to any agreement, whether the Oslo Accords or the Road Map, will not.
Everything the Arab-"Palestinians" do is against the bejeweled "Oslo Accords." While the USA, the EU and the UN dictate to Israel to comply with these agreements, its, supposed to be partner to peace is free of any obligations. A classic case of appeasement, one for the books.
So now, the Israelis are waking up to realize that the people who are representing them have cheated them of way too much and have caused them and their country untold harm. Thus, they are now in the process of undoing the domination of those who have harmed them and want to harm them further. The position and faulty rule of the elite, the Left-unJews, the oligarchs in Israel is, slowly but surely, being undone and new, more realistic officials are gaining power.
Israel is NO democracy; rather it is a light tyranny in the guise of democracy in which the few control all. The pretence needs to change.
It will take time to undo the harmed that was done and still being done but the process has started and that is the most important.
It is time to lift the political titanic off the Israelis' back.
