As for much of the rest of the Left, Burston and Siegman pounce at every opportunity to dissect, analyze and find criticism for Israel's failings whilst almost totally ignoring that we have a Palestinian leadership(s) counterpart which have a very long history of embracing a number of extremely problematic ways, including corruption, militancy, extreme bigotry against Jews, denial of history, fundametalism, embracing of ideologies which celebrate suicide bombings and the murder of Israeli civilians, the acceptance of kangaroo court justice to get rid of Palestinian collaborators, the kidnapping of Israelis, the failure to officially recognize the existence of Israel, and the call for Israel's destruction. Burston is beginning to show a glimmer of hope, at least for me, that he is embracing a realization that these issues about the Palestinian perceptive are central to any possibility of a future peace in this region. It's not all about us.
