Israeli Defense Minister, Moshe Ya’alon, Resigns as Netanyahu Embraces Right­-Wing Extremism

In-depth Report:

“To my great regret extremist and dangerous elements have overrun Israel and the Likud party”

Mr Ya’Alon is being replaced by former nightclub bouncer, Avigdor Lieberman, leader of the hard-­Right, Yisrael Beitenu party to create the most extremist Right-­wing government in Israel’s chequered history.

Mr Ya’alon said that extremism, violence and racism were threatening Israeli society and had entered the IDF. He urged IDF generals to voice their opinions, even if they contradict government policy, while warning of militant views creeping into mainstream discourse.

Both the Conservative and Labour Friends of Israel in our own Parliament, including the Prime Minister, would do well to reconsider their allegiance to the alleged extremist government of Binyamin Netanyahu lest they be ‘tarred with same brush’.

Furthermore, those who support, fund and arm the extremist government of the undeclared nuclear-­armed, State of Israel, are on the wrong side of history and, as a consequence, probably on the losing side of any future nuclear war emanating from the Middle East.

“Dark forces are rising in the Israeli society,” So warns Israeli General Ya’ir Golan.
