Twitter debate comes to life: It's hard to believe two serious journalists are behind "Israel II" articles

Dr. Avishai Ben Haim and Baruch's series of articles read Nesuba around an argument about a half-baked thesis promoted by Ben Haim, according to which Netanyahu is actually a representative of what he calls "Israel II" and therefore so beloved by her. A thousand counter-examples from Kara will not convince him And the argument between them goes nowhere

Television is an art of imagery, and so Network 13's quirky article series about supposedly "second Israel" relations and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took on a distilled allegorical dimension in several scenes that documented the series' creators engaged in an argument between them while life went on as usual. Thus, Dr. Avishai Ben-Haim and Baruch read passionately about Netanyahu and "Israel II" on a staircase in the middle of the street, and as they quarrel people continue to pass in front of the camera, as if they did not exist. In another scene, the two begin to interview someone, but Even before it is enough to answer the argument between them, while the interviewer waits patiently for his turn to answer, this is to illustrate how this tweeter debate, at least half of the troll, concerns reality and life itself.

The series of articles revolves around an argument over a half-baked thesis - intellectual amusement, political propaganda, and optical illusion - promoted by Ben-Haim, according to which Netanyahu is essentially a representative of what he calls "Second Israel" (= Eastern periphery, in fact) and therefore persecuted. And so the "other Israel" follows him in the fire and water, because hurting him is hurting her. A thousand counter examples will not convince him. Read tries to contradict him, not very successfully, and the two go out into the world to try and find out which one is right. The contradictory positions of the two are clear, but instead of violating - the argument between them leads nowhere.

This series of articles is in many respects hard to believe how two generally serious and experienced people like the two stand behind it. The first failure is actually the definition of the concept - not really an invention of a lifetime. The latter defines "Second Israel", among other things, as an environment that clearly supports Netanyahu, and is now waving that the group that is defined as supporting Netanyahu, well, really supports Netanyahu. Indeed an exceptional thought exercise.

But this is also a fundamentally flawed concept: as a thousand commentaries on Netanyahu and the Likud (and they are growing day by day) have made it clear, and as it has been clear when it comes to the ruling party for decades, Likud has been supporting people from all sectors and classes in Israeli society. The mere pretense of identifying the source of her power with one group is foolish. And if we were already convinced that there is a political identification of the right with the periphery, on the contrary, there is no way to describe the grouping of the interviewees by another word other than puzzling, and often the questions they choose to ask them.

The series also confuses questions such as whether there is a "second Israel" discriminated against for the first time (almost a rhetorical question: there must be discrimination) - and the connection between this phenomenon and the three indictments facing Netanyahu. By the claims of "exile violence" by the regime against protesters, "Third and Fourth and Fifth Israelis", Israelis originating from Ethiopia, ultra-Orthodox or of course Arabs - groups whose support for Netanyahu is at least questionable, and can really claim discrimination in enforcement, do not even appear on the screen. They probably create a more complex reality from Netanyahu's flow chart against the anti-periphery anti-left elites against Netanyahu and back.

In recent years, the shelf has been filled with significant televised works on the Israeli establishment's attitude toward Mizrahim, on the Eastern power in the Likud for generations, on Menachem Begin and, of course, and perhaps most importantly, on Benjamin Netanyahu. It's not that the issue is not in question or, heaven forbid. But Ben Haim and Read preferred instead to find valuable conclusions to conduct another futile Twitter discussion, only this time in prime time.
