Israel destroys whatever the Palestinians build and, with its blockade of Gaza, seeks to stop them from building anything at all.

And yes, Binyamin Netanyahu is absolutely a fascist as he relies on right-wing coalitions that include parties devoted to annexation of the West Bank to build governments.
