Prof. Paul Eidelberg
The founders of the state of Israel had a simple problem: how to disempower the people in the process of creating what everyone will think is a democracy.
Simple: establish a parliament based on Proportional Representation with a low electoral threshold. This will multiply the number of parties such that none will ever receive a majority of the votes. This will FRAGMENT the people.
There’s a Latin term for this: divide et impera.
This is why No Mk will support a system whereby members of the Knesset are individually elected by and accountable to the voters in geographic constituency elections – the practice of the eighty plus democracies I surveyed back in 1980.
“Israeli democracy” is no less a fraud than the “peace process”!
There is a way to undo this fraud, but it will take three things: (1) a patriotic statesmen comparable to George Washington (who had as his “prime minister” the greatest statesmen of the age,” Alexander Hamilton); (2) Big Bucks, and above all (3) God’s blessings.
The People of Israel need to understand that the founders of the modern State of Israel were intellectual dwarfs compared to America’s Founding Fathers, the greatest assembly of statesmen in history.
To rectify the inherent flaws of the State of Israel, we need a Yitro just as Moses needed a Yitro, to organize the ancient Republic of Israel.
That ancient Republic was deemed the greatest Republic in history by both Protestant and Catholic Hebraists like Bossuet, Sigonio, and Cunaeus, and more recently, by William Gladstone (1809-1898), one of Britain’s greatest prime ministers, who declared: “The American Constitution is, so far as I can see, the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man.”
Israel has been governed by a hoax, and it could not possibly exist were it not for the unseen hand of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
