But together with that, I understood that the right to vote, especially when it is not given to everyone, is not enough to determine a democracy. Citizens, together with their right to vote and especially in our problematic political situation, must also choose other ways of direct action that confront their reality.” : The greatest weapon of present Israeli State ideology is that Israel and its citizens are not connected to others in any fundamental sense. Your act makes that untrue in fine. And it is untrue in many, overwhelming ways, as well. The dominate, State active ideology imploys enforced blindness.
