Nearly every delegate at the Tel Aviv conference is happy to declare their belief in the two-state solution, and to explain why it's not yet possible.18:45 11.02.16 | 0 comments
It's unfortunate that it's necessary to resort to boycotting, divesting, and sanctioning Israel, but, as Code Pink declares, they're nonviolent tools. At the same time Mr. Burston talks about the vanity of boycotting Israel, his prime minister is calling for "crippling sanctions" against Iran, even while Dimona has never been inspected and is said to only operate when the wind blows toward Jordan. It might please Mr. Burston that the mere mention of boycotting Israel in a U.S. newspaper's online forum gets the messages purged and the poster banned. It's effective censorship, but it tends to make one less sympathetic. The jazz great Bill Evans canceled his Soviet Russia tour when it invaded Afghanistan. Israelis would do better to demand their government end the settler and military occupation of the OPT, end the blockade of Gaza instead of blaming everyone else for well deserved criticism. In their lust for that Greater Israel, Israelis have lost their humanity. The world now knows it.
