Here''s one example of why those who are left-wing ideological and cultural icons are doing in their own political chances to influence:
"What will follow these elections is this country''s demise," predicted Yoram Kaniuk, a prominent, left-wing Israeli author and Tel Avivian..."Bennett reminds me of the European politics of bygone days," said Mr Kaniuk, alluding to the rise of the far-right led by demagogues in the 1920s and ''30s.
"This is what my father escaped when he fled Europe."
That is wrong. It''s ridiculous. It''s inciteful. It''s fanciful. It''s discombobulated thinking.
And it is dangerous.
