The Israeli public's taking to the streets to express its anger illustrates the world's need to develop public opinion studies and analyze public trends, as polling companies reveal little quantitative information that needs to be explained, so countries continue to suffer from ignorance and lack of understanding of public opinion until the people's anger suddenly explodes and demonstrations, protests and strikes are the means by which public opinion is expressed, and facts appear that everyone is trying to ignore.

There are many forces that work to hide the facts from the trends of public opinion and prevent real studies and justify this by protecting national security, but these forces work to protect capitalism and impose its control over the peoples using ignorance, misinformation and deception, so they prevent real public opinion scientists from developing new scientific methods and tools to study the trends of the masses.

Why do revolutions ignite suddenly?

One of the most important facts that we can discover from studying the events of the past decade is that revolutions ignite suddenly, and then experts appear trying to explain the revolutions and explain the factors that prompted the masses to express their anger, so where were these experts?! Were they ignorant of the existence of these factors and did not know that they would lead to violence and anger?! Why did they remain silent and did not explain to the judges the seriousness of these factors, and that they constitute a latent public opinion that must one day express itself violently, because no one cared to read the trends of the masses in depth?

Although there are many advanced public opinion think tanks in the United States, they are surprised, like Third World regimes that ban public opinion polls, by revolutions raging in many countries of the world, and perhaps soon in America itself and in Europe.

Thinking outside the box of the West

Does this prospect seem remote and unrealistic? Israelis taking to the streets to express their anger shows that the coming days hold many surprises that will force the arrogant West to humble itself and discover dangerous and new truths that will affect the future of the world and rebuild the world order.

No one could have imagined that the Israeli people could take to the streets to express their anger, and that they suffer from a sharp division rooted in the history of a State that was founded on deceiving the world, falsifying facts and usurping the land of the Palestinian people, whose existence is denied by the Israeli Minister of Finance.

If this people has come out to express their muffled anger and challenge the brute force that their army has long used to oppress the Palestinian people, we can expect that there will be many people – even in America and Europe – who will soon come out defending their right to life and challenging the arrogant oppressors, no matter how powerful they are.

People are waiting for the spark

The media focused on describing the event and its image as the result of the process of controlling the judiciary that Netanyahu wants using a law he submitted to the Knesset, and that he wants to protect himself from prosecution on corruption charges, but that was a superficial reading of the event, so Netanyahu's judicial reforms were only the spark that ignited anger, and explained that the Israeli people were waiting for an event to come out expressing a latent public opinion that did not appear in the election results, and the Israeli media could not express it, and tried to hide information from The reality of division within the Israeli people and the sharp differences between their communities, on which no compromise can be reached.

Fairy tale oasis of democracy

Israel was able to use the global media system to deceive the world and spread the myth that it was the oasis of democracy in the Middle East amid a sea of dictatorships, and that image was one of its most important sources of strength.

Those who took to the streets to express their discontent were defending the country's democracy in the face of the extreme right, which is part of a coalition government led by Netanyahu and Ben Gvir that wants to impose the Jewishness of the state as an alternative to democracy.

The Knesset is subordinate to Netanyahu and did not reject the government's judicial reform law, and that was just the beginning of many laws that the extreme right wants to impose on the Israeli people.

Therefore, Haaretz described the reforms as a judicial coup, and that Netanyahu changed the Israeli system from democracy to dictatorship, and Haaretz described the demonstrations as a secular awakening that Israel had been waiting for a long time, not only to protect the balance between the government and the judiciary, but the secular middle class was struggling to preserve Israel's character.

A theocratic state, not a secular one

Haaretz tried to provide a new explanation for the anger of the Israeli public that the middle class refuses to fund Torah school students who do not work and refuse to perform military service like its children.

In an article published by The Times of Israel, Nadim Kotich explains that religious extremism forms the basis of a self-portrayed Israel as a modern state, and that Netanyahu's government was the result of increased religious extremism as extremists came to rule.

The Jerusalem Post accused the far-right, which participates in the government, of planning to violently confront pro-democracy protesters, so the Nationalist Party leader warned that Netanyahu was determined to send the country to hell, while the Israeli president warned that the crisis posed an existential threat to Israel as it could lead to civil war.

Why did he suddenly become a hero?

The Israeli public's attitude towards Netanyahu's expulsion of Defense Minister Yoav Gallant illustrates other aspects, as some events can contribute to the formation of public opinion abruptly and increase people's anger, so opposition leader Yair Lapid described Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a danger to Israel and a threat to national security.

Lapid believes that Netanyahu managed to expel the defense minister, but he will not be able to exile the Israeli people facing the madness of the coalition.

Why did Netanyahu fire the defense minister? Gallant's position is clearly consistent with his awareness of a general trend within the military, where he said that the IDF is in an open revolt against the brutal legislative agenda, and in response Netanyahu expelled him.

Gallant knows there is anger within the military against the ruling coalition, which has led hundreds of officers to sign statements refusing to serve, threatening the unity of the military.

Galant's expulsion from the government turned him into a hero in the eyes of millions of Israelis, becoming a key player in deciding the future. And what role can it play in the development of events?

This brings us directly to an important question: Can the IDF also split? Haaretz provides us with important information that can contribute to increasing our ability to predict the future, as it says that it was the army that paved the way for Ben Gvir's rise, meaning that the far-right trend is strongly present within the army, and that the conflict can develop rapidly between secularists who support Galant and religious people who support Ben Gvir.

Has normalization with Arab countries contributed to the crisis?

There are many factors that need to study their impact on the crisis, including normalization with Arab countries, where Netanyahu felt his strength and that he was able to achieve for Israel a victory that it did not dream of, so it controls the entire Middle East region and manufactures events in it to achieve its interests, but what impact does this have on the internal situation in Israel?

Writing in The Times of Israel, Nadim Kotich offers a new explanation: extremism in Israel increases whenever there are signs of Arab-Israeli peace.

Kotich demonstrates that the Knesset has lifted restrictions on settlements in the West Bank, so what does this have to do with Netanyahu's plan to destroy the Israeli judicial system under the banner of reform that threatens to stop the rule of law and pave the way for dictatorship?

Kotich says that the attempts of Arab countries to achieve peace with Israel have been met with an increase in religious fanaticism and extremism, but we can add to this that the Israeli people began to feel safe a long time ago, and that Israel has come to control the region, so the extreme right-wing aspired to use this period to achieve their goals, the most important of which is the imposition of the Jewishness of the state, the expulsion of the Palestinian people, and the seizure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque to build the Temple.

At a time when young people are looking not to do military service, and young people increasingly support Ben Gvir and identify themselves on the basis of Judaism, there is no external enemy threatening Israel.

At the same time, secularists in the army felt that they were the ones defending Israel's security, confronting the Palestinian people in the West Bank, and protecting settlements inhabited by religious people who refused military service.

The middle class felt its standard of living diminishing as a result of funds channelling settlement construction to religious people and increased spending on their schools.

America is concerned

Israel is the most important American project of the twentieth century, the most important result of Western colonization of the Arab world, and the means by which America weakened the Arabs and prevented them from increasing their power.

Therefore, Netanyahu was keen to inform America of his decision to suspend his judicial reforms before he informed his people, as he is fully aware of America's keenness to preserve Israel and its shock at these events after paying hundreds of billions over 75 years to ensure Israeli military superiority, but today Israel faces - as its president says - the threat of civil war.

Therefore, the coverage of the American media limited itself to describing the event without analyzing and interpreting it in the hope that these events would end quickly, but it did not realize the seriousness and depth of the crisis and that it threatens the entire American project.

As for the media of the Arab countries, they tried to ignore the events and distract the Arab masses with Ramadan series, but these regimes have the right to be afraid, as the future holds many surprises, and the anger inherent in the hearts of the Arab masses exceeds the anger that exploded in Israel, and in all cases the masses are waiting for the spark that can come in any form.

Therefore, it is better for all systems to allow real public opinion scientists to measure the attitudes of the masses, to rationalize decision-making, and to deal with the masses wisely before anger erupts.
