Anticipating Close-in Threats

Reader comment on item: Biden's Emerging Foreign Policy
in response to reader comment: Israeli Freedom at Stake as Much as Any Aspect of Preserving Sovereignty

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 7, 2021 at 12:14

After the swearing in of Isaac Herzog, there is the sense that the political environment is going to be making it definitively a change government all around in Israel, the potential for greater divisiveness apparently becoming the tool of governance; it seems like it is taking a political page from the change government in America, where democracy as a tool has been modified to enforce government management that interferes with personal liberties in order to make whole populations conform to a sinister autocratic will not seen since Iosif Dzhugashvili, though most modern attempts pale in comparison to the more dramatic means by which the power he seized was accommodated.
His modern day contemporary demonstrates a more restrained demeanor, though do not be fooled; his ambitions are directed in a way that should not be misinterpreted as it seems to be by leaders if Israel and the American 46th Administrative Chief Executive and his own apparatchiks.
Earlier remarks about Israeli freedoms are tendered in the same caution as Israeli sovereignty; doing so by understanding one cannot be secured without the other; both at serious jeopardy by attacks from all corners of the world, but more in danger from close in with the government now in place.
The threats are much closer; even at the door: who is watching the door, Mr. President?
