is israel going fascist?

from a poll reported in haaretz, via angry arab:

67 percent of these Israelis believe that strong leaders can be more beneficial to the country than laws and public debate. Fifty-one percent of the Jewish subjects said that Israeli Arabs should not be allowed to be elected to the Knesset; about 30 percent of the subjects approve of nonviolent forms of civil revolt like demonstrations without a permit and refusal to serve in the territories, actions that involve disobeying the law; 24 percent support violent revolt, as compared to 9 percent who approved of this in a study that was conducted a number of years ago.
this follows a report last week that 44% of americans polled favor restricting the rights of muslims in this country.

repeat after me:
israel is a democracy.
the united states is a democracy.
israel is a democracy.
the united states is a democracy.

israel is a democracy.
the united states is a democracy.
