Behind the visit is prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who in recent years have associated the cordial ties to a number of political leaders and movements that previously were considered taboo in Israel. Salvinis critics in Italy and Israel chastise him for his denial – that nyfascist. But Netanyahu chooses to draw attention to other characteristics of the Salvini: his support for Trump, his criticism of the EUROPEAN union, his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and – in the Netanyahu followed – his reorientation towards the central european nationaliströrelser.
Netanyahu increasingly intimate relations with the baltic states and to Poland, the Czech republic, Slovakia and Hungary Brussels-hostile regimes has been a profit. The EU, the israeli nationalists chagrin constantly ”was panting us in the neck”, and criticized the occupation, has in recent years ceased to act in palestine. The initiative is pointless, because such a large part of member states opposes them.Benjamin Netanyahu and Viktor Orban in Budapest last year. Photo: Balazs Mohai/AP
embrace such conclusions. The forces that constitute Israel's new friends have not been arrested by some sudden love and understanding for jews. Some of them are nodding in agreement to the Netanyahu government's rhetoric about getting tough on islam and the arabs, but it is not the main point for people that Salvini and the austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who recently discussed with Netanyahu.
For them, and for Poland's and Hungary's governments, Israel is valuable as karaktärsvittne. The israeli prime minister's visit and vänskapsbetygelser is the closest it is possible to get remission of sins – for the historical crime, the old klavertramp and contemporary accusations of anti-semitism.– It is not possible to come along and say, ”We admire Israel”, and at the same time be nyfascist. Those things do not go together and we can't accept support from such a hold, said the president of Israel Reuven Rivlin recently to CNN. Photo: Darko Vojinovic/AP
party Likud, is at least as militant when it comes to big-Israel and its borders as Netanyahu. But in his eyes solkar Israel down then it brings itself in on the crass barter with forces whose past and whose message is in a grey zone between democracy and anti-semitism. The other day he said to CNN:
" It is not possible to come along and say, ”We admire Israel”, and at the same time be nyfascist. Those things do not go together and we can't accept support from such a hold.
There has been an intense traffic of controversial populistledare to Jerusalem at a later time, among them the Philippine's strongman Rodrigo Duterte, whose praises of Adolf Hitler, Netanyahu was forced to ignore, and the Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban, Netanyahu's most active ally in the EU.Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro has promised to break or downgrade diplomatic relations with the palestinians and move to the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem.

is another noisy, the head of the government who have spoken warmly of the Netanyahu of Israel. He has promised to break or downgrade diplomatic relations with the palestinians and move to the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem. Both of these reforms are difficult to implement, partly because Brazil's arab population is large and influential, in part because its more than a hundred thousand jews are deeply divided on these issues.
another question, where Matteo Salvini and Benjamin Netanyahu have found each other is the perception of migrants and asylum seekers. Israel has, in effect, pulled out of their commitments when it comes to assessing asylum claims. Very few cases are tested, and only a vanishing part of the trial is granted – basically the same model as the Salvini commend for Italy.
For many israelis is the Netanyahu shift in the embarrassing and shameful. But many of his voters are in the mood. Rather than languish in vain to be accepted as a full member in the western democracies exclusive club, so to create Israel, a new ideological environment, where new and less scrupulous allies will accept it without the constant censure of the occupation and the requirements of the peace process.
