I am no expert on the israeli politic but I see the politic changing to a part in response to where the initial israelies came from and where the newer ones are coming from. A diffrering response to socialism being found in the newer peoples.
I don't see a direct result from WW2 but a mindset response. A way of thinking, that being extreem in its nature has extreem response in its nature.
As american in response to concentration camps did establish their own concentration camps for japanese americans sans the killing but still heinouis and dispicable. REplicating a similiar response with Guantanamo in a way...a group of peoples with no rights to challenge their detention. So one precedent leads to a extension and application on another.
So I see the current Israel doing things that are not in consideration of a free way of doing things.. This latest surpression of vocal dissent is a good example. That is usually the first move in any totalitarian regime or apartheid regime, which is where it appears they are headed.
So I disagree. REnt problems..... I see as little to do with the arab revolutions. And as mentioned I fully expect this to be coopted by the extreem right, not now but shortly.
I can see more economic problems in the future..EVentually... like south africa.... these things will pose problems and the people will have to change their views to accomodate reality. They can stop a boycott in their nation, but as they get more extreem will be the response more extreem. More peoples will abscribe to it.
More stoppage of aid ships to palestinians and more nations will stop and say...what is going on here.
They are their own worst enemy and little realize it. But that is how things end with those that depend to much on force to get their way.
Gradually the politic will have to change.
As in the americas..... america will stop their heinous aggressions..because they eventually run out of money. Not because the people suddenly become enlightened or informed. So seeing the writing on the wall..they change their politic/ideology to reflect the reality.
So will Israel eventually...but I see it not with this.
You could be right...I will not state it has to be my way or to my opinion....I just in my opinion don't see that change in mindset yet.
It will come...with economic pressure will come people pressure and politic change. To early yet...the right is to strong to my opinion yet.
Boycott is the key to this thing. With efforts on UN palestinian statehood, they are finally coopting the higher ground moral ground.
Israel trying to outlaw such things as boycott, even the mention of it...plays to the contrast. They should be acting conceilatory.....they are doing the opposite. Force and right wing authority work short term very well...long term not so well.
