Israel has been infected by the seeds of fascism, former prime minister and defense minister Ehud Barak said during a TV interview on Friday night.
Responding to the resignation of Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon earlier in the day, Barak said that it should be a red light for all of us regarding whats going on in the government.
Life-sustaining Zionism and the seeds of fascism cannot live together, Barak told a Channel 10 interviewer.

(You cannot invade the mainland US. There'd be a rifle behind every blade of grass.)
It’s an ethno-state with a fairly controlled economy and a robust military. None of that is new. Leftists just love to throw out the F card when they run out of arguments.

Israel is on a war footing every f’g day! They can do whatever they like/choose.

Ya'alon's resignation is "the end of a chain that began with the case of the soldier who shot [a wounded Palestinian assailant to death]," Barak said.
So that's all the evidence Ehud B. can scrounge up for Israel becoming fascist? ONE IDF soldier shooting a wounded enemy jihadi and the resignation of Ya'alon does not a fascist country make. Not even close.

The prophet Isaiah foretold of these self-hating, unbelieving, leftist Jews in Israel. Their politics and lack of faith will cause the rising leftist leaders of Israel to sign an agreement with the Anti-Christ (Daniel 9) and usher in a holocaust even greater than WWII. Pray for revival in Israel and a turning back to the "tried stone, the precious corner stone, the sure foundation" that brought the Jews back from the dead...
Isaiah 28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! 2 Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. 3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet: [...] 6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate. 7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment. [...] 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. 14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. 15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge* shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: [...] 17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

More like a hero turned traitor, like Benedict Arnold. He tried to give away half of Jerusalem and 30% of Israel to Yasser Arafat, in exchange for nothing.For some insane -- and blessed -- reason, Arafat said no.
people like him have never shown the slightest ability defeating the enemy, even when they win a battle they go directly into appeasement mode and squander the victory ( no matter how miraculous) — and right back to enabling the enemy regroup ( often on Israeli territory), rearm ( with all the latest, Worst weapons including From Obama nowadays) , and reattach Israel yet again. In brief, people like this guy (intentionally Or Not) weaken and sell out their country Given this unfortunate fact about the Israeli left, I no longer listen to them. I imagine that when Israel finally loses patience or finds it really must eliminate the enemy, this fellow will blow his “ fascism” whistle at full volume. And guess what? It won’t matter one way or the other. If however he starts helping solve things - like repatriating the enemy population to their own lands ( that is, places they’ve already invaded and subjugated), plus eliminating the threat from without — which will require some serious bombing not the usual day or two “air raid with video show” -——__ -— then thus guy and folks like him will become part of the solution. Right now, he and the Jewish left are only making everything worse

Yes Israel is still not the promised Kingdom. It is mostly secular as Ehud Barak, demonstrates by his comments. May YHVH shine His face on the leadership of Israel; do not go back to Ehud’s ways...
“Life-sustaining Zionism”. I think he means socialism.

Sounds like a Demwit in the US. Same mental process going on, same demagogic tactic. Israel's Labor Party used to follow Ben-Gurion, who always said, "anyone but Likud" -- and it was Labor that nearly destroyed Israel through stupidity and hubris prior to the 1973 war. The Labor consensus started to shatter as a consequence of that close call and costly conflict, and Begin wound up the first Likud PM. Thanks Olog-hai.
