Famous Israeli activist Uri Avnery, incredibly, was attacked while getting into a taxi cab with his wife as he left a demonstration. 12 rightist thugs attacked him in the cab and tried to drag him out of the vehicle he had gotten into with his wife, probably to beat him up. Earlier at the rally, a rightwinger throw a smoke bomb into the middle of the Earth, apparently trying to cause panic and make the demonstrators stampede and trample each other, causing injury or death. The demonstrators did not fall for it.
Columns by Leftwing opposition writers like Amira Haas in Haaretz regularly attract dozens of comments openly accusing her of treason and supporting the enemy.
In the wake of the flotilla attack, an Arab MP in Parliament received many death threats and had to be given police protection.
Neve Gordon, another activist, is victim of a campaign to get her fired from her university teaching job. A Facebook page calling for her firing now has 1,000 members.
This is getting really bad. Even peaceful opposition to the Rightist regime is becoming outright dangerous. That’s the hallmark of a fascist regime.
