The Israeli Deep State's War on Binyamin Netanyahu

Super smart Jew Daniel Greenfield hits it right out of the park: 

As in America, leftists reject the democratic will of the people when the people decide not to vote left. They do not accept the peaceful transfer of power as final. They reject it and then start working to delegitimize the non-leftist leader. 

And, as Mark Steyn often points out, in America, the government may change, but change isn't really possible when the bureaucracy is permanent (and leftist). The same is true in Israel. 

"Labor’s deep state still runs much of Israel the way it did when Ben-Gurion was still alive. It doesn’t just have the media and academia, the non-profits and the elites, the way most national ‘lefts’ do. It also controls the old machinery of government that it spent generations running and robbing.

"Ben-Gurion’s tenancy may be a factoid to most, but it’s a sore insult to Labor. And its deep state is working overtime to force Netanyahu out of office using fake scandals, fake news and fake police."

"Labor failed to stop Netanyahu at the voting booth despite Obama’s experts working for them. And Obama isn’t around to restrain Netanyahu. A deep state coup against democracy is its last option."

"The people won in America and Israel. But that just means that the deep state in both countries is becoming more ruthless in its efforts to defeat the voices, hopes and dreams of Americans and Israelis."
