Ya’alon is the real threat to Democracy

Peace NowMinister of Strategic Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon (Likud) told a closed-door meeting of far-right activists last week that he was not afraid of the Americans and that Peace Now and the so-called Israeli “elites” are viruses… causing grave damage to the state of Israel.

Peace Now General Secretary Yariv Oppenheimer responded to Ya’alon’s statements calling them “dangerous” and adding that “they mark Peace Now as a target”.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak responded to the comments by saying: “Peace Now is an important part of the peace camp and an integral part of the democratic dialogue in Israeli society.”
