Hardliner and Tent City Leader Tell Tale of Two Israels

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2011

Daphne Leef and Danny Danon represent two very different Israels. Danon represents one literally, bringing his jingoistic Zionism to the floor of the Knesset, where he advocates against the two-state solution, and against the housing freeze. Meanwhile, the 25 year old Leef is the somewhat coincidental leader of the social justice protests on Rothschild Boulevard, the leader of an amalgam of Israelis profoundly discontented with the status-quo Zionism of Danny Danon, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the right wing.
