Israel's toxic policies and deteriorating morality have reached the point where even current and former Israeli leaders are sharing their harsh criticism of where Israel is today. A day after Ya'alon resigned as defense minister and replaced with Lieberman, Ehud Barak made the following comments: 'there are no serious leaders left in the world who believe the Israeli government.' and Israel has been "infected by the seeds of fascism," And two weeks ago, Israel's military chief likened 'Revolting Trends' in Israeli Society to pre-Holocaust Germany: "If there's something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance it's the recognition of the revolting processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then – 70, 80 and 90 years ago – and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016." "There is nothing easier than hating the stranger, nothing easier than to stir fears and intimidate. There is nothing easier than to behave like an animal and to act sanctimoniously," he added. "On Holocaust Remembrance Day we ought to discuss our ability to uproot the seeds of intolerance, violence, self-destruction and moral deterioration," Golan said.
