In an exclusive interview with Abi Abelow of the Pulse of Israel, Ken Abramowitz, founder of Save the West and author of The Multifront War, said:
“The problem is the wheels are falling off of the democracies and dictatorships around the world. Half of the world is living in dictatorships and half of us are living in democracies. The battle between us is what I call World War III.
“Now, it is not like World War II, when bombs were exploding all over the place. It is more complicated, as the democracies have not declared war on the dictatorships. But, the dictatorships have declared war on the democracies by infiltrating America and undermining freedom of the press.”
According to Abramowitz, a balance of power is pivotal to any democracy, yet the Israeli Supreme Court has taken over the Jewish state and has too much power over the Prime Minister and the Knesset. He said, “I believe the Supreme Court was behind the charges against Netanyahu. This government is now illegitimate for several reasons. For one, the Supreme Court appointed itself. In the US, the President appoints the Supreme Court and the Senates advises and consents. Thus, the Supreme Court is appointing its own people and the people have no say. Israel should move to that system”.
According to Abramowitz, “It is the same thing concerning the Attorney General. And the Supreme Court systematically discriminates against Jews [due to its own biases]. The Prime Minister should select Attorney Generals and the Supreme Court like they do in America, and not the illegitimate way they do in Israel”.
The other issue mentioned by Abramowitz is the fact that groups like the Joint Arab List and Ra’am are permitted to sit in the Knesset, and yet from there, they try to destroy the State of Israel from within.
“When you have someone who does not believe in the Basic Laws of the State of Israel and then wants to join your club, you should say they came to the wrong club. Why should we let enemies sit and use the Knesset to destroy Israel?”
Abramowitz claimed that the US has the same issue with the Squad, who sit in the US Congress and try to destroy the Constitution and the Bill of Rights from within. He compares that to the situation in Israel, where, he says, “In Israel, you have an illegitimate Supreme Court and Attorney General working with parties that are not legitimate and try to have the government violate the basic law of Israel”.
