COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

Response to a reader referring to Israel’s democracy:

Democracy?

Where do you see that?

Israel is exactly as much a democracy as the former American Confederacy or former Nationalist South Africa.

They, too, had elections and legislatures and the window dressing of democracy.

Unfortunately they also had millions with no rights, no vote, and limits on what they even could own.

Well, that unarguably describes modern Israel.

We can only be glad there are not more such democracies in the world.
