The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
You have assessed the situation accurately, Nick Potzayid,there will never be peace as long as the Palestinians are not granted refugee return rights, equal status with Jewish citizens of Israel, permission to build, restitution of land and property. Unlike the United States, Israel is far from a settlement success story, the natives have not given up, as Jabotinsky noted back in 1923 ("O Zelezhnoy Stene," ["On the Iron Wall"]), the native Palestinians will continue to fight as fiercely for their birthright as did the Aztecs, Mayans, Plains Indians. But this time, the world is watching, and colonialism is criminal, no more taking over of land and resources from the "benighted" aborigines . No one is criticising the US for the land theft and genocide, the packing away of the aborigines on reservations, it is too late, that was done when imperialism was a way of life. No more colonies today. Kaput. Israel is doomed unless some accord can be reached with the injured natives.
