    ...in the one person one vote scheme of things, it's hard to know what real impact any of the conferences and assemblies have. Well, by the numbers, not that hard to know. If we took the racist view that Jews in America vote as a solid block, and they all voted tomorrow for Israel to keep on breaking international law and fomenting world terrorism, it still would not swing the tide in America turning against Israel's continued intransigence, land and resource theft, denial of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity, war-mongering in the region, and the sheer arrogance while doing it all. And no amount of censorship will stop the onslaught of truth. It's entirely weird how Akiva Eldar can tell the truth but commenters here cannot. Oh well, at least you have some truth as the next Nakba is around the corner for lack of a real leader...
