No Paseran? It already has.

Before its closed down by Israel's zealots and the Jewish Brotherhood, its worth reading Haaretz, if only for pieces like this about the growing reign of terror by the Israeli far right.

Now violence is being privatized. In typical Netanyahu fashion, individuals on the radical right are given the push, the encouragement and the authority to take the "Operation Price Tag" route, with much more than winking approval. The days that preceded Rabin's assassination as a "traitor" are returning. Rabbi Dov Lior, who by dint of receiving tens of thousands a shekels a month and controlling an Israel Defense Forces hesder yeshiva is a direct extension of the Israeli government, is not alone. The method of delegating revenge against traitors to private hands, after incitement by the leader, is growing stronger and more focused.

Menachem Livni, the head of the "Jewish underground" terror organization, who when he was convicted of multiple murders testified that he had acted on behalf of Lior, now has a vineyard and a winery. Now, anyone who does not want to directly fund Livni is a potential target for "price tag" actions from him, and without being subject to the restrictions of the criminal code and the attorney general. Now, in addition to the weapons entrusted to him by the IDF, Netanyahu is giving Livni and the Yitzhar thugs the weapons of civil prosecution, with no need for proof of damages.

Those who are against the occupation and who refuse to cooperate with the criminality of the settlements will now have to pay huge sums for their unwillingness to cooperate - in addition to paying their taxes, which fund the illegal settlement enterprise. Navot must pay for being put to death by Ahab.

Our own Captain Ahab is leading the boat and the whales to disaster. Removing him from power is becoming a top global priority.

And from the wannabe settlers? Hush, they are silent and they are acquiescing.
