If you believe the NIF, Israel's radicals, Peter Beinart or many others, Israel is going through a crises of democracy, freedom of speech is under attack, oppositional organizations are being persecuted and things are generally going downhill in Israel. It's ugly.
It's also nonsense, as I've been describing relentlessly for quite a while.
Here's a description from a faraway land. It tells not about grandstanding and mooted ideas about changes to the laws that will never happen, but rather about laws that are already on the books, laws that limit the ability to organize freely, draconian requirements for total transparency about sources of funds for political purposes - and as a freebie, one of the matters that has sparked the discussion is the intention of the government to demolish homes of poor people to make way for rich folks.
I dare anyone to find Israeli laws that look anything like this, the ones currently on the book or the ones being discussed that will never be enacted.
The faraway land, you ask? The state of Washington. And Alabama. And 34 others.
