What perpetuates the dysfunctional and treacherous government of Israel is its reputation as a democracy in the United States. The myth of Israeli democracy endows the government with legitimacy and its ruling elites—politicians, judges, academics, journalists—with respectability. Expose this myth in the U.S. and it will be immediately felt in Israel, especially among the elites. This is the most expeditious way of initiating basic institutional reform and regime change in Israel. For this, a well-financed and professional organization is needed in America, either in New York (perhaps better in Washington, D.C.) as well as a parallel organization in Israel.
