    Hi Cipora, nice to hear from you!! Regarding your post: yes, theoretically, Chinese exports can be replaced. Is it possible? Absolutely. Is it probable? Not so much for the foreseeable/immediate future. I can elaborate on that more if need so. The fact that Chinese currency is undervalued doesn't mean much either since they basically financed GW's adventurism in the ME and with the fact that that financing puts the American economy's balls firmly in the palm of their hands. re: "China dumps products" -- I can't even keep a straight face knowing that the US which comprises 5% of the world's population actually produces 25% of global pollution. Yes, we all have a long road ahead of us - and the developed world should spearhead that. As for "this state of affairs" not being 'allowed' to continue, maybe I missed the memo on lever being tilted back, but the last time I checked, west was still cleaning the mess left off from the neocons....and still struggling....Look, just because I can contain my emotions and look at things objectively doesn't mean that I agree with the realities around us. It is hard for me to swallow too, but it is what it is. Anyway, hope all is well with you, regards and meow.... :)

IfNotNow doesn’t deserve the support of left-leaning Jews

IfNotNow and its co-founder Simone Zimmerman challenge U.S. Jews to end the occupation. But they won't answer this basic question: Do you support a Jewish and democratic state in Israel, alongside a Palestinian state? And if not, why not?
