Gideon Levy

... The only place on earth that Donald Trump is beloved, admired, adored, and appreciated is Israel. The only place that Benjamin Netanyahu is admired, adored, beloved is the United States. If this is not shared values, what is shared values? ... The first very deep-rooted value [among Israeli Jews], let’s face it, is the value that we are the chosen people. Secularists and religious will claim so. Even if they don’t admit it, they feel so. The implementation is very simple ... International law, wonderful thing, it doesn’t apply on us. It applies on any other place on earth, but not on Israel because we are the chosen people ... The second very deep-rooted value is obviously the value of “we the victims,” not only the biggest victims, but the only victims around.
