Weimar and Israel
אני קורא את רשימתו המחכימה של יוסי גורביץ על רפובליקת ויימאר הכושלת, וחושב על ארצי.

יום אחד, הסטוריון צעיר (כמו יוסי) יכתוב על נפילתה של הרפובליקה הישראלית. את משפט הסיום יוכל לגנוב מיוסי.

Current Mood: gloomy
Current Music: Wagner -- The Rheingold [Goodall]

כן, אני יודע. אבל לא נראה שאספיק לקרוא משהו בקיץ הזה. יש לי עוד שני סמינרים שאין לי אפילו מושג על מה אכתוב אותם.

My comparison was not focused on the German dictator, but on the Germans' lack of support for democracy. That, I think, is similar. I don't think Sharon is a dictator.

But Israel is not sustaining its democracy, don't you see?

Arab-Israeli citizens are still considered second-class, including de-facto discrimination (see the details about Arab towns in Gurvitz's article on the municipalities' crisis, for instance); left-wingers are close to being demoted to second-class citizens, too, as Aviv Lavie's article in Ha'aretz of some months ago showed; the people of Israel feel that it is permissible for the state to kill unarmed people without trial; all members of Knesset have long since figured out that they can get away with anything, without suffering electoral repercussions, et cetera et cetera ad nauseam.
