Israel’s democracy

Uri Dromi is supposedly a friend of Israel. However, his May 26 Other Views column, A master class in Israeli politics, could have fooled me.

Dromi writes a hypothetical scenario with Bibi Netanyahu and his son, Yair, in which the father speaks with his son to brag about his dirty politics and scare tactics in order to be re-elected and implies the father setting the country up for his dynasty for life. Dromi obviously didn't favor Bibi’s re-election and that’s fair, but to mock the only democracy in the Middle East, such as Israel, when it is surrounded by dictators and ayatollahs who routinely rule for life is disgusting, misleading, anti-Israel and, dare I say, anti-Semitic.
