21st Century Israeli politics is always fun to read about for its Through the Looking Glass aspect. If Trump were an Israeli politician, he’d belong to the Pathetic Liberal Squish Party, along with the Israeli equivalent of Ken Burns. From The Guardian:
Prime minister reaches preliminary agreement with Jewish Home and Jewish Power parties
Associated Press, Thu 21 Feb 2019 01.44 EST
The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, on Wednesday reached a preliminary election deal with two fringe religious-nationalist parties in a bid to unify his hardline bloc before elections in April.
Netanyahu’s Likud party announced it would reserve the 28th spot on its parliamentary list for the Jewish Home party and grant it two cabinet ministries in a future government if it merges with the Jewish Power party.
Jewish Power is comprised of hardline religious nationalists who have cast themselves as successors to the banned Kahanist movement, which dreamed of turning Israel into a Jewish theocracy and advocated the forced removal of its Palestinians. …
Among the prominent figures in the joint Jewish Home-Jewish Power list are Bezalel Smotrich, a self-avowed “proud homophobe”, Itamar Ben Gvir, an attorney who has made a career defending radical Israeli settlers implicated in West Bank violence, and Benzi Gopstein, the leader of an extremist anti-assimilation group whose Twitter handle translates as “Kahane was right”.
The late American-born Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Jewish Defense League is considered a terrorist organisation by the FBI.
