Awful Rightwing Extremism and Racism on the Rise
1 \ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been spending much of his time making sure a racist, xenophobic, Homophobic Ultra-Right wing fringe party which is the Israeli version of David Duke passes the electoral threshold & makes it into the Knesset in the April 9th elections
2 \ The name of this party is "Jewish Power" & its members are followers of Meir Kahana - former leader of "Kach" party which was banned from running in the elections in 1988 and was designated as a terror organization in Israel, the U.S., Canada and the EU
3 \ The leader of "Kach" Meir Kahana managed to get elected in 1984 and was boycotted by all the other parties in the Knesset. He tried to pass a law for stripping non Jews from their citizenship, a law for separate beaches for Jews and Arabs and other racist laws
4 \ Back at the time senior members of Likud attacked Kahana's draft bills and said they were similar to the Nuremberg laws passed by the Nazis before the Holocaust. It was actually a quite accurate comparison
5 \ The members of "Jewish Power" are all followers of Rabbi Kahana and his racist ideology. Some of them even said it on the record. Baruch Marzel – a senior member of "Jewish Power" was the chairman of "Kach" after Kahana was assassinated
6 \ Itamar Ben Gvir - a senior member of "Jewish Power" was convicted numerous times including for support for terror organization & incitement to racism. Michael Ben Ari – former MK from "Jewish Power" was denied entry to U.S. due to membership in a terror organization ("Kach")
7 \ Netanyahu is making a lot of efforts to get those guys elected. He is pushing privately and publicly all the different factions in the radical right in Israel to unite with "Jewish Power" and form one radical right party
8 \ Netanyahu wants a united radical right party with the "Kahanists" in order to make sure no right wing votes go to waste and to make sure the right wing block in the Knesset get at least a 61 members majority
9 \ Inside the Likud – the same party which boycotted "Kach" and Kahana in 1984 – nobody is sounding even the smallest bit of criticism against Netanyahu's actions. Some in Likud are even supportive of Netanyahu's efforts to get the Israeli David Dukes into the Knesset.

Rightwing extremism and hate is on the rise here in the US from followers of Trump. Sadly the US media does its best to downplay it.
