Thomas Friedman: Likud controlled by far-right arrogant activists
The New York Times' top political analyst Thomas Friedman criticized Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party claiming its old leadership has been "swept aside a rising group of far-right settler-activists."


Friedman claims that the party no longer views the Palestinians as a threat thanks to the Iron Dome system and the separation fence. "I fear the wall and the Iron Dome are also blinding Israelis from truths they still badly need to face," he wrote. (Ynet)
