Boaz Albert, one other shame on Israel!

Binyamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister
Moshe Ya'alon, Minister of Defense
Yitzhak Aharonovitch, Minister of Internal Security
As a Jew, I am deeply disturbed by the way the government of Israel, that claims to be a democracy, treats its citizens, mainly the Jewish ones.
That the laws of Israel are antiquated, unJewish, backward and stupid is one thing. But they also endanger its democracy and human and civil rights of its citizens.
I am demanding an answer to the way the brown-shirts Jewish police treated the grapevines farmer Boaz Albert. Has he gone through due process, as a democracy offers? Has he been charged with something specific and been given a chance to defend himself as in democracy? Or Israel has turned into Iran, and North Korea?
I do not think Israel is a democracy and what is worse, it is fast sinking beyond the lines of democracy. It crosses the red lines of democracy daily.
The world is watching you; I am watching you all the way from the USA.  And there must be answers with regard to how Boaz Albert has been treated.  It is SHOCKING!
I have alarming concerns about Israeli democracy and how she appears to the world. It is essential that Israel's leaders ensure that all processes are sensitive to issues of democracy. If not, Israel's light, as a beacon to the Western world, is fast dimming.
