Keeping with the theme of the day….Israel, has been billed the ONLY democracy in the Middle East, that is the biggest damn lie on record.
Equality is part of the principles of a democracy……the US is one state vote away from ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)…..I bring this up because that fake democracy in the Middle East has offered its version of equality….the problem is there will be NO vote…..
Israel is an apartheid state, but you don’t have to take my word for it. All you have to do is take a look at the actions of the lawmakers in the Israeli Knesset, the national legislature of Israel.
On June 5, the Knesset issued a press release stating that its Presidium (a group consisting of the speaker and deputy speakers) voted to disqualify a proposed bill that called for Israel “to be defined as a state of all its citizens” to be placed on the Knesset’s agenda.
By its own admission, the Knesset mentioned that this was an “unusual move,” since it is the “first time proposed legislation has been disqualified before being discussed in the plenum (the entire assembly of Knesset members) during the past two Knesset terms.” This means that such a swift shooting down of legislation has not occurred in at least five years.
In a rare act, the Presidency of the Knesset (a ten-member group representing most parties) last week disqualified a bill moved by Israeli Palestinian parliamentarians from coming to a debate or vote. The bill in question was named “Basic Law: Israel [is a] State of All Its Citizens.”
As the names hints, the bill would have declared that Israel belongs not to its Jews but to all its residents. The Knesset Presidency decided the bill was too dangerous to come to a vote.
That is right this nation of cowards and bullies will not let the chance of equality for its citizens to even come up for a vote.
So please stop calling this band of criminals a nation of democracy….they will NEVER be a democracy….at best just an extension of fascism. Please stop using the “D” word when referring to Israel…the land hate created.
