Gideon Saar and company undermine Israeli elections

In all their anti-Netanyahu hatred, Naftali Bennett, Yair Lapid and company are going out of their way to push laws that can undermine parliamentary democracy, concocted as this one was by Gideon Saar:
Former prime minister and Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out against the coalition on Monday a day after it successfully pushed a bill through a Knesset committee that would limit a prime minister to only eight years in office, denouncing it as "Iranian" in a speech to a meeting of his Likud faction.

"The government's polls numbers are tanking, and the opposition's are rising," Netanyahu told fellow lawmakers. "So what do they do? They have tried to pass an Iranian-style law that would create a situation in which they would stay in power even if someone else wins an election."

This kind of law "does not exist in any parliamentary democracy," added the former prime minister. "In a democracy, the public gets to elect its leaders, not some arbitrary law."

The speech came a day after the Knesset Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted unanimously in favor of the bill. It must now pass several other Knesset votes in the plenum before becoming law. The bill seeks to limit a prime minister to two four-year terms and includes non-consecutive terms if less than three years separate them.
What we have here is an Israeli example of the left and their useful idiots doing everything they can to ensure continued power for themselves, as the left abandons any respect for democracy they ever supposedly had, in favor of autocratic measures. A sad reality that was bound to happen sooner or later.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
