After the decline of the Name of the Father, and confronted with the empire [...]

Eventually, a large right wing party won the elections and is about to form coalition with ultra-orthodox Jewish and extreme right wing parties, in order to form the most right winged government ever to exist in Israel. On the agenda, new [...]
