Israeli politics seems crazy because it is run by its deep state gone rogue

Israeli politics seems crazy because it is run by its deep state gone rogue, by John Hinderaker at a conservative conference in the US.

For me, the most eye-opening presentation was Caroline Glick’s. In recent years, I have been puzzled by Israeli politics, with its endless accusations of “corruption” and seeming inability to maintain a functioning government.

Caroline explained it all: Israel is in the hands of its own Deep State. Unelected bureaucrats, led by a rogue Supreme Court that is not restricted to deciding actual cases, as in the U.S., but can issue orders more or less willy-nilly and somehow has gotten the power to name its own successors, dominate over the country’s elected officials.

What is happening is Israel, which seemingly can be countered only by mass political action, should be a warning to Americans as well as Europeans.
