The recent visit to Israel of a dominant figure in Italy's right-wing coalition government, is the latest in an increasingly open alliance between the Israeli state and resurgent forces of the far-right and neo-fascism in Europe.



The same social and economic contradictions that are giving rise to the growth of neo-fascism in Europe and elsewhere are producing similar results in Israel itself. A garrison state involved in continuous acts of militarism in the Middle East, Israel is also wracked by social tensions, registering the highest poverty rate of any of the so-called developed countries and the most extreme social inequality, with the exception of the United States. These conditions have generated mounting working class protests and strikes, including a recent nationwide walkout by social workers over poor pay and deteriorating working conditions.
