Re: Replying to an athiest by Michael Moriarty (March 14, 2005)

"Many of the citizens of Israel are socialist now."

C'mon now. That hasn't been true since about 1970.

The Labor Party (sic) maintained the trappings of socialism through inertia until about 1990 such as observing May Day. But when the Russians started to come, they got rid of those fast. Long before that Labor had become the party of the wealthy and established classes.. I am from Canada and worked in a large air conditioning factory in the mid 80s. All the ordinary workers down to the last man were Likudniks. The only Labor Party people were bosses and union officials.

In the big Sharon-Barak faceoff in 2002, for head of state only, when Barak was totally wiped out, his only support came from affluent communities and neighborhoods.

More than that, for the past three or four years, Likud finance minister Netanyahu has brought in a series of Thatcher-like measures to erase all traces of the old socialist legislation.

What is called the hard left today consists of mainly of rich people out to appease the Arabs. Property always seeks quiet at all costs. Social issues are beyond their ken. Their support runs to less than 10 per cent of the Jewish population, and that includes big money kibbutz interests.

I touch upon this at one of the current events pages at my site.
