RACE OR RELIGION?:

The democrats vs. the non-democrats (ALON LIEL, 01/23/2011, Jerusalem Post)

The hawks-doves battle is practically over at this stage. Barak’s union with the Likud is just the final proof. A new ideological battle has begun and it no longer has anything to do with peace. This time it’s between democratic and non-democratic forces.

It is the battle against the possibility of one state with two types of citizens – the Jews with full rights, and the Palestinians with partial rights. On this issue, politicians cannot coexist anymore in the same political nest.

The split in Labor is only the beginning; Likud and Kadima are next. Politicians will now have to position themselves not as hawks or doves, but as democrats versus non-democrats.

We will soon see this happening all over the political map. Unfortunately, I do not foresee the democrats gaining the upper hand.
