Israel's Dissenting Voices Get Lost in the War Echo Chamber

•, Neve Gordon

For several days now, some of my neighbours have suggested that the time has come to "destroy them"- meaning either Hamas or Palestinians – "once and for all". The rockets being fired from Gaza clearly do have the effect of raising the level of hysteria within Israel.

However, not only have the dozens of Grads been fermenting the spirit of war – government ministers, members of Knesset and leading media commentators have also been consistently pouring oil onto the fire. Indeed, it seems the only vocal criticism against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is that he is too soft on the Palestinians. There is no public debate about the necessity of another war, but only about how punitive Israel should be.
