When is Democracy not Democracy?

Itamar Ben Gvir has come under attack in the last few days for being anti-Democratic. The most recent verbal assault came from that august body “The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI). This questionable voice for free speech has tried to silence free debate when that free speech is exercised by the Right and, in particular, Otzmar Yehudit’s leader Itamar Ben Gvir.

These paragons of virtue hide behind the mask of ethics and morality, pretending to be enlightened humanists and true democrats. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are hypocrites on a massive scale. These deceivers are cynically clever working hand in hand with the leftist media. They attempt to control the minds of Israel’s citizens. They would have you believe Itamar and the other leaders of Israel’s authentic opposition are somehow a threat to the State of Israel and a danger to its democratic institutions.

When in truth, the leftist / woke gang show time and again that when their interests are threatened, their precious liberal values melt away. Swept away is democracy, and the rule of law and ethics are quickly abandoned in self-preservation. All means are justified in defeating authentic Jewish values.

And so we are left with these political pygmies bent on undermining the only natural political alternative on November 1. Try as they will to inject into the body politic moral confusion and doubt. They will not succeed as long as there are Jews who still believe in the Zionist dream.

Yosef Yigal Drever

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)

    Kol HaKavod, Yosef Yigal! You stand straight and strong and fearless for the truth, with every article you write about Itamar! I am getting positive feedback from some people in my OY groups for Anglos, so your writing is not falling on deaf ears!
