If there are attacks against Jews then the Jews will attack the Arabs these attacks are currently being heighthened by the ongoing escalation of tension between Israel and Gaza and add into this fetid brew the on / off election of a new leadership in the West Bank.
The original creator of HRW was himself Jewish he would go on to resign his position due to the singular focused attention Israel was receiving and the skewed views within the HRW .
Having lived here for 43 years I have not witnessed any Apartheid system that is not to say that all Jews love all Arabs no more than all Arabs love all Jews
These NGO reports make headlines and make superb soundbites they get contested then more or less fade from view as the foundations they are created on usually have shakey ground
An annual Religious event made even more hectic by the dropping of COVID restrictions ensured that thousands of Ultra Orthodox Jews made their way to a given area , it appears that one more than likely stumbled , the one behind him then fell over him and the crowd unknowingly surged ever forward , it is similar to another disaster in Mecca where thousands are being herded into a confined space and they move ever forward not knowing if people in the front are on the ground or not .
In our case there is apparently a Police Report stating that such a disaster was waiting to happen
Not one of them had a mask.
These are a large group of people who only listen to their various leaders / rabbi's they do not , will not conform to the standards You and I accept or understand , they have NO internet, read only proscribed news papers , their phones are strictly only for calls no internet, they have no radios or tv's and live their lives in prayer, learning and ghettoes .
They are threatened by the secular society and its norms and they retreat from anything that they feel threatens their way of life , the Police are referred to as Nazis and you cannot enter their areas unless you are modestly dressed .
They are by choice a people apart
Netanayu was unable to form a coalition Government and the mantle is now passed to the next largest winner in the recent election.
The last few years have seen Netanayu run the country to suit himself and do all he can to avoid the upcoming legal problems that beset him , his supporters have tried to change laws , have challenged the courts and have attempted to create a state specially formatted to protect BB it has failed (Thank Gd)
Whether we can see the next contender create a government only time will tell but whilst there is life there is hope .
He's out of power? Completely?
If the Party now tasked to form a Government ( a coalition) cant then there has to be another General Election of course it is more than possible that Netanayu could win the next election it is also possible his Party - Likud could decide that enough is enough with him wriggling away trying to find cover from his court program (he is charged with 3 offences)
So he is still acting PM unless the opposition can form , coerce parties to join them
