Writing on Twitter this morning, journalist Shimon Riklin referred to the decision of Defense Minister Benny Gantz to change “Father” and “Mother” on ministry forms to “Parent 1” and “Parent 2,” calling out the decision as mindless political pandering.
“This populist Defense Minister Gantz his clearly hoping to garner a few more votes from the LGBT community. Is there anything more stupid than that? Is there any left-wing tyranny from the United States that their lackeys here in Israel won’t enthusiastically adopt? These are a band of lifeless idiots who glorify destruction for the sake of destruction,” he accused. “G-d help us.”
