Itamar Ben-Gvir, a member of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, even before he pulled pulled a gun Thursday evening and tweeted for Israeli forces to “kick the crap out of the enemy” in Israeli-occupied Sheikh Jarrah.

While in Sheikh Jarrah, he also shouted, “If they throw stones, shoot them.”

Though some continue to claim that Ben-Gvir has moderated his positions over the years, he remains imbued with both fanaticism and narcissism. “Over the last year I’ve been on a mission to save Israel,” Ben-Gvir recently told journalists.

“Millions of citizens are waiting for a real right-wing government. The time has come to give them one.”

Polls indicate that Religious Zionism could potentially be the third largest party in the Knesset.

Democrats and Republicans alike can be expected to keep the military aid to Israel flowing no matter what transpires on 1 November. All outcomes point to the continuation of apartheid for Palestinians.
