Yael Patir, Israel director of the left-leaning U.S. Jewish body, sat down with Haaretz to talk about Trump, the gap between U.S. and Israeli Jews, and the growing anger at the Israeli peace camp. Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 2 comments
These kinds of words should have been offered to Israel 20 yrs ago. Since that time, Palestinians have recognised the State of Israel, have compromised on ceding part of Palestine and agreed to a two state solution. What has Israel done and what is Israel doing? Stealing more and more land, creating for Jews only enclaves out of Arab neighbourhoods in EJ and creating new colonies who are backed by the ruling of the Supremem Court. Any viewer of a map can see that a two state solution has been ruled out by Israel's illegal actions. But Israel is treated with exceptionalism by the international community and here we see that same thing. Kid gloves and little reprimands while Israel marches on doing whatever they want to do while spitting in the face of the rest of the world believing that they have the moral right that no other nation has and apparently it is working as the zionists sneer with gloating glee.
