I truly wonder why so many approve of Netanyahu's tactics. [View all]

He is a RW extremist. He has been prosecuted for corruption and dismissed from office, only to come back again.
He changed the courts eroding democracy so he could have more power.

Why are his beliefs about the decimation of Gaza the right ones?
