Facebook resistance — Yitzhak Laor on the silence of the Israeli left

Missing

Yitzhak Laor's latest Ha'aretz article is a searing critique of the state of the Israeli left and the replacement of grassroots activism with online petitions and billboard ads:

Israel's streets are silent. Supporters of the left can be found mainly on Facebook and on Internet petitions. There you can sign as much as you want and under any name. The political context is not forming the resistance but granting approval to what exists. "Like" — as you say on Facebook when you like something — is the name of the neoliberal game.

Yitzhak Laor is the author of The Myths of Liberal Zionism.
