Jewish Settlers Attack The Israeli Police, And Throw Rocks And Firebombs At Israeli Officers

Here is yet another example of Jewish extremists attacking their fellow Jews. This time it was in the case of an evacuation of Jewish settlers who were squatting on privately owned Palestinian land. The IDF soldiers were working to evacuate the squatters out, but they were met with violence as the settlers threw stones and firebombs at the soldiers. As we read in Haaretzs:

lashes broke out on Wednesday morning at the Oz Zion settler outpost in the West Bank, as dozens of Israel Border Police teams and Civil Administration forces evacuated buildings erected by settlers on private Palestinian land.

Settlers set fire to tires and a car, and threw stones at the police, who used crowd dispersal measures. After the evacuation, settlers threw firebombs at the forces and hurled stones towards a road in the area, hitting a vehicle belonging to an Israeli military officer.

The deployment of forces to the outpost evacuation, where enforcement had not been carried out for over two years, was determined due to anticipated violent resistance and nationalist criminal activity that could occur in the area.

During the evacuation, some settlers barricaded themselves inside buildings by cementing their feet into the concrete, but ultimately the evacuation proceeded.

You can see footage of the aftermath, with flames and a stubborn settler kneeling on a military vehicle:

After two years the squatters were finally pushed out, but only because the violence on the property was getting bad enough to demand action. Apparently there was violence between Palestinian and settler, and to prevent a further escalation, the settlers were removed. According to the Israeli media outlet, Srugim: “very serious actions against the law and public order have recently taken place in the area of ​​the hill, with an emphasis on harming the residents of the area, and recently even caused a real risk to the residents of the settlement recognized by the decision of the political cabinet as security – the nearby Hill of Assaf. In light of the danger that the place poses and the fear of destabilizing the area, the head of the Civil Administration, Brigadier General Hisham Abraham, led a quick and orderly procedure to evacuate the outpost.”

After the forced evacuation, the settlers made a statement affirming that the settlers being pushed out is a crime that will not be forgiven:

Despite our appeal at the beginning of the evening to Minister Smotritz to prevent the planned destruction which is within his area of ​​responsibility – the destruction is being carried out at this very moment. In the days when our soldiers are killed in battles, the right-wing government chose to damage and destroy buildings in the Land of Israel. The war against the pioneers who settle the land and with their bodies stop the Palestinian takeover of the land of our ancestors is a disgrace and a crime that will not be forgiven.

Notice the words that are used. Even though it was privately owned Palestinian land, the squatters believed they had a right to squat because it is “the land of our ancestors”, and thus because the government forced them off the land, the politicians responsible cannot be forgiven. Knowing that these tribalists don’t mind violence against their enemies, and given that they don’t mind attacking Israeli security forces, it is not difficult to foresee a civil war in Israel between fanatic and moderate. There are really two Israels, and this divide is made clear by the presence of the settlements. They are expanding Israel’s frontiers, but this is to the ire of many Israelis who see them as troublemakers and provocateurs. The rift is made apparent, and the two camps already despise one another, and this was made clear in the massive demonstrations (done by both pro-Netanyahu and anti-Netanyahu, respectively).

Its not just the settlers who are a ticking time bomb, but the ultra-orthodox Jews who will eventually be a part of the military life of Israel. This will make way for the Jewish ISIS. While they are Yeshiva students who have no fighting experience, with military training, with guns, and armed with a Jewish supremacist ideology, they will become a violent force of fanatics. There is already an ultra-orthodox military unit known as the Netzah Yehuda (Judah’s Victory Battalion), and they are the most supremacist of the battalions. If Germany has its nazis, Israel has its Netzahs.

The Israeli Supreme Court just decreed that Israel’s ultra-Orthodox (known as Haredim) must be drafted into the military, as we read in Haaretz:

Israel’s High Court ruled unanimously on Tuesday that ultra-Orthodox Israelis must be drafted into the Israeli army and that yeshivas should not receive government funding if their students do not enlist – a ruling that is likely to have a significant impact on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling coalition.

The ruling of the extended panel of nine High Court justices, led by acting president of Israel’s Supreme Court Justice Uzi Vogelman, stated that “In the midst of a grueling war, the burden of inequality is harsher than ever and demands a solution.”

The justices noted in their ruling that when many soldiers are sacrificing their lives, “Discrimination regarding the most precious thing of all – life itself – is of the worst kind.”

Some may think that the Haredim will resist, that they will not comply with mandatory conscription. But here is the reality: the Haredim have adapted to changes in the past, and they will most certainly adapt to the decree obliging them to join the military. Israel’s recent history can now be broken down to “pre-October 7th” and “post-October 7th” Israel. After the October 7th nightmare, a path was paved for a new Israel, a metamorphoses of the Jewish land. Fanatics and zealots got their argument, that purging out the Arabs to make way for Jewish settlement in Gaza is the way to go. With a war with Hezbollah getting worse and worse, faced with a major regional power, Iran, the militarist spirit of Israel is growing intensely. In the midst of all this, there are tens of thousands of young, able-bodied Haredi men (around 80,000) who are not in the military. In the minds of Israelis, they need to be drafted to fulfill the need for the country to be war ready. Regardless of the resistance, the ultra-orthodox will adapt. There was an observation made about this topic by the Israeli journalist Anshel Pfeffer:

this new generation of Haredim will prove, as has happened before in history, that they are willing to adapt to changing circumstances in the world around them.

Just as the “Lithuanian yeshivas” were founded in the 19th century as elite academies and boarding schools to counter the threat of universities opening to Jews and attracting bright young students. Just as at the start of the 20th century when middle-class Haredi parties began sending their daughters to secular gymnasiums and the rabbis were forced to endorse the Beth Yaakov network for schools which had originally been ostracized for trying to teach girls Torah and general studies.

Just as, after the foundation of Israel, when the center of Haredi life had been uprooted by the Holocaust from Eastern Europe, they were forced to accept the democratic rules, form parties, take part in elections and build political power in the state of Zionist heretics, a new Haredi generation is beginning to accept that they must serve as well.

But how will this new Israel look like, with so many ultra-orthodox Jews in the military? While it will benefit Israel in the sense of having more soldiers in its ranks, drafting the ultra-orthodox into the military will pave the way to a Jewish ISIS. For one, in Israel the ones who are having the most children are the ultra-orthodox. If demographics are the future, the future of Israel is zealot. The IDF already has an ultra-orthodox military unit known as the Netzah Yehuda (Judah’s Victory Battalion), and it is known as the most brutal of the units, notorious for committing egregious acts, even sexual torture. For example, in 2021 the Times of Israel reported:

Israeli Military Police arrested four soldiers from the religious Netzah Yehuda battalion suspected of beating and sexually assaulting a Palestinian suspect, according to a Wednesday report.

As the suspect was held by troops in the back of a military vehicle after his arrest in the West Bank, he was allegedly beaten en route to an army base, the Ynet news site reported.

At the military camp, the abuse continued, allegedly including one of the soldiers placing the barrel of his gun on the suspect’s backside, the report said.

There is also the story of Omar Assad, a 78 year old Palestinian-American (he ran a grocery store in Milwaukee) who died while in custody under Netzah officers. He was taken out of his car, bound, gagged and forced on the floor for an hour in which he died.

In 2021 there was another incident in which Netzah soldiers pulled a man out of his car and beat him so badly that he ended up shaking and passing out. “They pulled him out of the car and beat him like crazy,” said a soldier who was not a Netzah. “At some point there on the road, the driver started to shake, and they saw that he was passing out.” “There were people there who tried to treat the Palestinian, who was in bad shape because of the beating,” the same soldier recounted. “They yelled at the Netzah Yehuda medic to come help, but he refused, claiming he was a terrorist. They even refused to provide the water they asked for to treat the Palestinian. It was an insane incident.”

Many officers from the battalion were there, “but none of them said anything,” the soldier added. After being detained for two hours, the driver and his family were allowed to leave, but they couldn’t find their car keys. They asked the Netzah soldiers if they had seen them, but they said that they had no idea where they were. “For more than an hour they searched for the car keys,” said a person who was present at the scene. “Only an hour and a half later, when the deputy battalion commander showed up and started to search, did they find the keys at their outpost, near the rooms. For an hour and a half they lied to the entire world, and this didn’t bother them at all.” So not only are these Netzahs tyrants and perverts, they are thieves. The Netzahs claimed that they stopped the car because they were afraid that he would try a ramming attack. But the Shin Bet security service, the police and the army’s Central Command ruled out an attempted attack. The Netzahs are known for their sadistic streak. “We would go out on routine operations in the villages, and suddenly one of the guys would throw a stun grenade at a home or a passing car. It’s usually just for laughs and because of stories they’ve heard about what battalion veterans have done,” said a Netzah Yehuda soldier who left the army some years ago.

In 2019, a Netzah Yehuda soldier attacked Bedouin at a gas station in southern Israel “without provocation, and while they were trying to call the police” according to military prosecutors. Another group of Netzahs got off a bus and “while they were carrying their weapons and for a few minutes struck people at the scene and aimed their locked and loaded weapons at them,” the indictment by military prosecutors reads. The soldier who led the attack got a month and a half in prison, while the rest got disciplinary action.

While the Netzahs are officially a part of the Israeli Defense Forces, they act as if they are their own army. As Israeli journalist Yaniv Kubovich observed: “The battalion has become a kind of an independent militia that doesn’t obey the army’s rules.” The former Netzah soldier attested to this: “It’s important to someone in the battalion to constantly show that they’re a different force in the sector – that we, unlike all the brigades that are replaced every few weeks, live this sector and know what to do.” The IDF has had to repeat the rules of engagement to the Netzahs, but to no avail. For example, in the town of Sinjil, Netzah soldiers smashed the window of a home, broke inside and threatened the family with a gun . For example, Palestinians in the town of Sinjil near Ramallah reported that Netzah Yehuda soldiers smashed the windows of a home, broke in and threatened the family with a gun. “There was an inquiry into this incident; the whole thing was improper operationally,” a source at Central Command said. “At the end of the inquiry, the orders and regulations were clarified to the soldiers,” but this was yet another event in which the Netzahs accosted people, and this was yet another investigation into their behavior, and another attempt to remind the Netzahs of the rules, which bore no fruit. In 2022 there was a meeting for Central Command following another violent incident by the Netzahs, in which it was suggested that the Netzahs be dissolved. But this was ruled out, because the Netzahs are so liked by the settlers in the West Bank, and to remove the Netzahs would have been seen as a declaration of war by the settlers. The whole thing is a quagmire of fanatics that will metastasize into a horrendous hoard. “We very quickly realized that dissolving Netzah Yehuda would be a declaration of war for the settler leadership,” a defense official said. “Their view on the ground is that this battalion belongs to them, that it’s a force that works for the settlement enterprise.” “In routine times, the heads of the settler leadership show up at the battalion freely and talk to the soldiers,” the defense official said. “Rabbis come to the post and move around freely, give classes and talk with the soldiers about operational incidents. It’s a kind of phalange [a militia]”. The problem is rooted in Jewish fanaticism, the type that murdered Christ. It is a type of fanaticism that causes division between the very people the fanatics claim to be with.

For example, in June of 2023, a police officer came to stop fighting between Palestinians and settlers near the unauthorized outpost of Oz Zion. But the Netzah Yehuda soldiers yelled at the settlers: “Screw this Border Police cop now,” and riled them to attack the officer. A few days later there was fighting between settlers and the police in the Shiloh Valley. “The soldiers from Netzah Yehuda began shouting at the police and security forces, ‘Don’t incriminate fighters,’ ‘traitors’ and ‘Jews are being evicted,'” said a military source with knowledge of the incident. “One soldier spit at the forces.” Netzahs have not only been violent towards Palestinians, but against Israeli officers as well. As one Israeli officer said: “On weekends, more than once, soldiers from Netzah Yehuda showed up and took part in the violent incidents against Palestinians or security forces who came to the confrontations”. They not only want to fight other Jews, but also to purge out the Arabs from the West Bank.
“There was an operation at a village next to Ramallah,” one official said. “In the briefing, the soldiers were told that they were passing through Palestinians’ farmland in Palestinian territory, so they had to act accordingly.”
Then one of the Netzah commanders declared to everyone present: “This is land of the Jewish people and it will soon return to the Jewish people.” They want to ethnically purge out the Arabs, and this is rooted in the Talmudic ideology of the rabbis. One senior Israeli military official lamented:

“It’s impossible to continue this way; everyone in the IDF agrees. It’s an issue that has come up so many times, but there hasn’t been anyone willing to take the flak from the rabbis and [politicians] who benefit from this situation.”

And if people in Israel don’t want to face the rabbis due to their influence, imagine the future Israel when the ultra-orthodox population will be even bigger than they are since they are now having the most kids? If Germany has its Nazis, then Israel has its Netzahs. Make way for the Jewish ISIS. Make way for the Masada generation. And they will be like those zealots about whom Josephus wrote, who murdered other Jews they deemed as not extreme enough, and who decades earlier called for Christ’s crucifixion. They will butcher people because of their race (they want to purge out the Arabs), they will butcher people because of their faith (they are anti-Christian) and they will attack other Jews who they see as not Jewish enough. Together with the settlers — and their fanatic “hill top youth” — the ultra-orthodox soldiers will become a frankenstein for Israel.

“It shall come to pass in that day that a great panic from the LORD will be among

them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor, and raise his hand against his

neighbor’s hand” (Zechariah 14:13)

When it comes to Israel, everyone is waiting for — more or less — the same thing: the next world war or the end of the world. Either way, humanity awaits for a major disaster when it gazes upon Israel. In Israel, the world discovered salvation, and at the same time, damnation. For some, Israel holds the land where redemption commenced, and for most, Israel is a source of insanity. Israel is a source of redemption in the sense that humanity’s Savior was murdered there; it is a source of insanity because humanity’s Savior was murdered there. The Man without sin was murdered in the land of Israel, where Greeks longed for Him but Jews despised Him. “Now among those who went up to worship at the feast were some Greeks.” (John 12:20) Surely, such a place is not one of serenity, but chaos. This present article will focus on this hysteria and how its presence ever lingers in our own time, intoxicating the souls of many. “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” (Zechariah 12:3) The Muslim burdens himself with Jerusalem, revering it as a holy site second to only the Kaaba; the Jew burdens himself with Jerusalem, seeing the city as his mecca; the Christian (typically those of the protestant or evangelical persuasion) burdens himself with Jerusalem since he sees it as the holy city of the Jewish people to which he is grafted in; and many secular people revere Jerusalem out of a zionistic attachment to Israel. Regardless of their diversity of beliefs, they all burden themselves with Jerusalem.

Do we need to elaborate on all of the blood that was spilt from Christians and Muslims fighting one another over this city? And we don’t need to go through a detailed lecture to know of the fighting between Israelis and Palestinians. The inciters of the West Bank and Gaza stoke up their people to war against Israel, because they burden themselves with Jerusalem. They look to the earthly Jerusalem, but are blind to the heavenly Jerusalem. “But you have come to the Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem” (Hebrews 12:22). During the Roman-Jewish war, the fighting was not merely Jews versus Romans; a huge part of that conflict was Jews fighting one another, and for what? To control Jerusalem. Time and time again we have seen the numerous examples of blood spilt over this city, and since mankind does not learn, who is to say that a civil war amongst the Jews could never happen again? There are voices in Israel — albeit they are few — who have been warning about an impending civil war, not between Jew and Arab, but amongst the Jews, between the Left-wing and the Right-wing. In the year 2016, the former director of the Mossad, Tamir Pardo, affirmed that there is a threat to Israel much worse than any of its Muslim neighbors — civil war amongst Jews. In a press conference Pardo was asked about threats to Israel and he replied:

“If a divided society crosses a certain threshold, you can reach phenomena such as civil war, in extreme cases… I’m afraid we’re in that direction … Threats to countries today are internal and not external. What you have in Syria, in Iraq, in Libya and in Yemen and in a lot of countries – you see the daily statistics of attacks.”

In other words, while external threats do exist, the greatest threat is within, and thus Israel could become another Syria where civil war has devastated the country. Israel is a country heavily divided between Right and Left, with the Mizrahim (Arab or North African Jews) being more in the former and the Ashkenazi (European Jews) in the latter. The Israeli activist and writer, Uri Avnery, agreed with Pardo and wrote on how this rift would not just be on ideological lines but ethnic lines as well:

“We don’t have a civil war yet. But ‘we are rapidly approaching it.’ Civil war between whom? The usual answer is between ‘right’ and ‘left’. Right and left in Israel do not mean the same as in the rest of the world. In Israel, the division between left and right in Israel almost solely concerns peace and the occupation. But I suspect that Pardo means a much deeper rift, without saying so explicitly: the rift between Ashkenazim (‘European’) and Mizrahim (‘Oriental’ or ‘Arab’) Jews. The Sephardic (‘Spanish’) community, to which Pardo belongs, is seen as part of the Orientals. The overwhelming majority of the Orientals are rightist, nationalist and at least mildly religious, while the majority of the Ashkenazim are leftist, more peace-oriented and secular. Since the Ashkenazim also tend to be socially and economically better off than the Orientals, the rift is profound.

When Pardo was born (1953), those of us who were already aware of the rift comforted ourselves with the belief that it was a passing phase. The ‘melting pot’ will do its job, intermarriage will help and after a generation or two the whole thing will disappear. It did not happen. On the contrary, the rift is deepening swiftly.”

Right-Left tensions have not calmed down at all in Israel, but is only getting more and more exasperated, especially with the new government coalition that has now supplanted Netanyahu’s Likud Party. More than half of Israel still supports Netanyahu’s Likud Party, which is evident in the fact that it won the most seats and votes in both the 2020 and 2021 elections. A huge chunk of Israel, on the other hand, despises Netanyahu which is demonstrated in what just took place within the Israeli government in which a coalition of parties led by Naftali Bennet and Yair Lapid overpowered the Likud and removed him from power (46% of Israelis support the Bennett-Lapid government). But this does not demonstrate that Netanyahu is not popular, but only that Israel is intensely divided. The cult of personality surrounding Netanyahu has been in Israel for a long time. In 2002, three years after Netanyahu lost the premiership, he was told by Yair Lapid:  “there were people who cried and said they would kill themselves, and there were others who said they would leave the country if you were ever elected again.” Netanyahu rose to power in the midst of Jewish fanaticism. He first won office in 1996, just a year after a Jewish fanatic murdered the Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin, because he advanced the Oslo Accords which guaranteed the “right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.” Any move by the government to enact the demands of the Palestinians will be met with not just protest, but violence by Jewish nationalists. This was affirmed back in 1986 by professor Ian S. Lustick. He warned that if a governing coalition party could be in the position to appeal to Arab demands, there would be a very violent reaction, not just against Arabs but other Jews:

“Even if a governing coalition could be formed of parties willing to accept an agreement based on the principle of territory for peace, the implementation of that policy would trigger intense and widespread opposition and pose real challenges to the parliamentary regime’s ability to sustain itself. … In Israel such a crisis would almost certainly involve repeated demonstrations by hundreds of thousands of Jews, violence against both Jews and Arabs, challenges to the authority and legitimacy of the government, a host of rabbinical decrees opposing the government’s intentions, the creation of scores of new illegal settlements, threats of civil war, a sudden influx of militantly ultranationalist Diaspora Jews, and, as suggested above, attempts at spectacular actions such as the destruction of the Muslim shrines in Jerusalem.”

The new coalition that has removed Netanyahu is a mix of left-wing, liberal, rightist, nationalist and religious parties, and even an Arab party called Raam, — a partnership that Netanyahu described as “a dangerous leftist government.” That the new government included an Arab party as part of its coalition against the Likud Party is ominous of more political tension between Jews. For decades we have been fed the narrative of “Jew vs. Arab” as if this is the emphatic, black and white reality of the situation. What we are rarely told of is the division between Jews. When two different religious and ideological groups go head to head, it gets violent and bloody, but there is no war more vicious than those between people of the same group, of the same nation. The most vicious war that America was ever in was against itself; the worst wars that Europeans ever engaged in were the ones against themselves; the most devastating wars that Israel ever went through where ones in which Hebrew killed Hebrew, be it in Israel versus Judah, or when the Zealots killed the Jews not on their side. When the Romans and Jews warred against each other, it was obviously destructive, but it was nowhere near as devastating as the inter-Jewish fighting that occurred within the walls of Jerusalem. Catholics and Muslims had many wars against each other, but nothing was more destructive than when Catholics and Protestants — who had similar theologies — fought one another. Muslims will fight those of other religions, but when it comes to Islamic wars, there is none more cruel and ruthless than when Sunnis and Shiites war with each other. That a coalition of Jewish parties — some Rightest and some Leftists — are including an Arab party that represents the demands of Israeli Arabs, shows that Jews will side with those who have been portrayed as their worst enemies just to overthrow their Jewish rivals (in this case the Likud). The Right-wing Jews loyal to Netanyahu’s party are, expectedly, using the presence of an Arab party in the rival coalition as proof that these Jewish parties are traitors.

With the replacing of Netanyahu has come an intensification of rage. This was pointed out by Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security service director Nadav Argaman:

“We have recently identified a rise in increasingly extreme violent and inciteful discourse particularly on social networks… This discourse may be interpreted among certain groups or individuals, as one that permits violent and illegal activity that may even cause physical harm”

This is happening regardless of the fact that the presence of an Arab party in an Israeli coalition could actually help accelerate the deepening of ties between Israel and her Arab neighbors, a trend which we have been seeing in recent years. Nonetheless, the alliance between Arabs and Jews to defeat a rival Jewish politician indicates one thing: the rift between Jews is more seething with hatred than the divide between Arabs and Jews. In fact, when Netanyahu entertained the idea of making an alliance with the Arab Raam party, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, the spiritual leader of the United Torah Judaism party, commented that “cooperation with those who respect religion and Jewish tradition is better than those who persecute religion.” By those who “respect religion” he was referring to the Islamist Raam party, and by those who “persecute religion” he was referring to the secular Jews.       

The tensions between the Right and the Left, between the religious and secular in Israel, has been ongoing for many decades. In 1970, the Jewish Orthodox professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz stated that it was likely that Israel would eventually come to a split between the religious and the non-religious: “we will likely split, against our will, into two nations, not marrying into each other, each pursuing its own historical path, feeling profound hostility toward the other.” Leibowitz envisioned that these two nations would be the Jewish nation and “the non-Jewish Israeli people.” (See Passig, The Fifth Fiasco, p. 159) Yuval Diskin, the 12th director for Israel’s Shin Bet, warned in 2015 that if the Israeli government, to make a compromise with the Arabs, ever decided to force Jews out of the settlements that a civl war would break out between settlers and the government. He made mention of this prospective insurrection in an interview with Dror Moreh:

“As the threat of people having to leave their homes increases, we’ll see more and more people, and not on the outskirts, supporting or joining actions which ultimately might lead to use of force — including against the army, including against the police — and this could also lead to another political murder.”

When Moreh asked Diskin to elaborate further on what he meant by a civil war, he explained:

“There are situations in a people’s life where the option is either to split up — establishing the Kingdom of Judea and the Kingdom of Israel —or to go for a situation where one side enforces its opinion and defeats the other side fully and absolutely.” (Moreh, The Gatekeepers, p. 361)

We are not predicting a forced eviction of the settlements, but the words of Diskin reflect how explosive the political and ideological atmosphere in Israel really is. Another sign of Israel’s political ticking time bomb are the demographic trends. The ultra-Orthodox in Israel have more children than any of the other Jewish factions. They have a fertility rate of 4.2% as opposed to the 1.2% birth rate of the non-Orthodox Jews. The majority of the immigrants making aliyah (Hebrew term to signify Jews moving to Israel from other countries) are religious and nationalistic. Two out of three immigrants to Israel are from Ukraine or Russia, a previous source of both nationalist and religious Jews to Israel. As these trends continue, another thing that continues is the growing domination of Right-wing ideology in Israel. The fact that Right-wing nationalism is extremely high amongst Israel’s youth is very significant, since when an ideological movement is confided to the elderly, it is a sign of its impending death, but when youth advance a cause, it will continue on and thrive. As we read in a report from Statfor:

“Israel’s right-wing attitudes have come to dominate the overall youth vote, with most of this demographic rejecting a Palestinian state and favoring military deterrence over diplomacy with militants.”

With such zeal for a militarist Israel against Palestinians, a compromise with the Arabs would be a prospect for throwing a match into a room full of gas; any such move is a potential catalyst towards bloodshed. The same report by Stratfor warns of political instability due to the intensification of nationalist sentiments: “The right-wing drift will have potentially negative consequences domestically and abroad, such as political unrest and international isolation.” This political unrest, if it goes on unchecked, would inevitably escalate to inter-Jewish conflict.
