Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My response ...

Interesting observations ... there are certainly readers who can respond on the Israeli anomaly. No, the Netanyahu government is not "Marxist" and has no "friends," only clients for sharing tools of suppression, hacking and sophisticated instruments of war. The UAE as foremost example. Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Russia all share roots of Soviet era totalitarianism. Democracy is an alien concept. In times of uncertainty and threats, the leaders revert to what they know best. None of the Eastern European states have made the transition to full-fledged democracy. Western Europe founded the EEC, grew into the EU, but were forced by America under pressure from the NATO alliance, to speed-up expansion to the East. The result the EU and Western Europe are today less democratic, more right-wing populism and the racist undertone of colonialism has a revival. See FEAR Inc. and the propaganda promoting Islamophobia. As far as corporate media taken root in the US and Western Europe, the CIA and Operation Mockingbird is very much alive today. Repression and censorship ... so much easier with Big Tech.
