What is happening is not right anymore

This is a message to my dear friend and all the other liberal democratic Likud supporters. This has gone too far – what is happening is no longer simply “right” and “left”. It is not “right” to annex people without giving them the vote. It is not “right” to dismantle the political and judicial checks and balances for personal gain. It is not “right” to belittle people because of their sexual identity. It is not “right” to provoke people and risk the lives of soldiers and civilians for photo opportunities. It is not “right” to let other people define who is a Jew. This is not “right” anymore – this is extremism. It is time for you to stand up for what YOU believe is right. I’ll see you at Habima on Saturday – I’ll be waving an Israeli flag.
