Quotation from Yehoshafat Harkabi “Any opposition … is attributed either to ignorance ...or to base motive they are anti-Semitic” — 1982

Former General Commander of Military Intelligence and Professor of Strategy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Author : Thematics :
" Demagoguery, engaging in chauvinism and national boasting, portrays Israel as consistently righteous and mighty. Being strong, Israel supposedly does not have to fret over the outcome of its policies and can allow itself to confront the world. Any opposition to Israeli policies is attributed either to ignorance (we have to “explain” to them) or to base motive (they are anti-Semitic). "
