Israel prides itself on being the only democracy in the region, yet no democracy silences dissent from its own intellectual class. This is a familiar trait of more restrictive regimes.

From the article originally published in Hareetz, “People with a similar political profile to mine have the feeling that we have been defeated and that we will no longer be able to exert a meaningful influence in Israel. In a profound sense, we do not see a horizon of repair, of true peace or a life of quality. A great many people understood this and looked for another place to live. There is something quite insane in Israel, so to look at it from a distance is at least a little saner.”
