The atrocities in Libya send an unequivocal message to the world: Patriotism lies with democracy, not with the regime. Citizens are allowed to fight an arbitrary, racist rule. Seventy years after the atrocities in Europe, the Middle East is sending a clear message about the moral necessity of international intervention to promote democracy and civil rights, and combat racism and oppression.
Israel, because of the history of violence against Jews, should have been the leader on that path, but official Israel instead chose the opposite direction - the Liorian one.
Faced with the inanity and injustice of the regime, every Israeli citizen and every friend of Israel outside of its border - whether Jewish or not - should support a democratic Israel in line with the promises of the Declaration of Independence, within its independence borders, known today as the 1967 borders. The racist entity that is taking over Israel must be resisted. This regime, too, must be toppled.
