Israel's war on liberal democracy


A spate of draconic new laws, policies and regulations reinforced by incitement campaigns against the Palestinian citizens of Israel and, increasingly, Jewish liberals is leading very quickly to an inversion of Israel's colonial project.

If, in the past, one could say that Israel was colonising the West Bank, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, today the governing strategies developed and deployed by Israel in these occupied areas have infiltrated and colonised the pre-1967 Jewish State as well. Indeed, the colonial leviathan is recoiling inward.

The initial assault against the veneer of liberal democracy included the current government's proposal of a new bill obligating human rights practitioners whose organisations receive foreign funding to wear tags when they participate in meetings at the Knesset or in other public venues.
