Op-ed:"Netanyahu allying himself with far-right settler extremists has sparked violence in Jerusalem and risks all-out chaos

The Israeli prime minister’s decision to side with extremist settlers for political gain, along with attacks on Palestinian worshippers, have led to possible war with Gaza and “civil war” inside Israel itself.
The events that transpired at Al-Aqsa mosque (Temple Mount) compound last Friday, when hundreds of armed Israeli police attacked Palestinian worshippers, injuring 200, triggered an explosion of violence that had been close to boiling point since the beginning of Ramadan.

Why has Netanyahu allowed for a Palestinian uprising?

Lehava, the extremist settler group that organised the racist demonstration weeks ago, is headed by a man named Bentzi Gopstein. Although the group would previously have been allowed no legitimacy by the Israeli government, Gopstein’s lawyer, Itamar Ben-Gvir, is a member of the Knesset and a close ally of Israeli PM Netanyahu. Ben-Gvir heads the Jewish Power party (Otzma Yehudit), which falls under the Religious Zionism slate led by Bezalel Smotrich. It’s no surprise, then, that Lehava feels they have been accorded a sense of legitimacy, when they witness Israeli members of the Knesset and allies of the prime minister standing beside them in Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one critical question it appears that Netanyahu; the Mossad the Knesset; and the IDF seem to not want to address; what happens if the planned "air/ground assault" against Gaza cannot put the "genie of suppressed Palestinian rage" back into the proverbial bottle?!?

What then?!?

The unintended consequences of not having thought this all the way through, may well come back to create an horrific outcome for the state of Israel, through these planned and announced actions against Gaza.
