A group of progressive Democrats in the United States Congress has called on President Joe Biden to “shift” American policy on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, saying that US aid should not be used to fund abuses of Palestinian rights.
The protests roiling Israel represent a struggle over its future. The traditional elite is in an existential fight to maintain power, while the ascendant religious-nationalist majority seeks to redefine the state.
Israeli democracy is in danger, demonstrations include very few Palestinians. It’s not a movement for equal rights. It’s a movement to preserve the political system that existed before the coalition took power - to save liberal democracy for Jews.
