Among Israel-minded voters, Sanders would get the J Street vote, Bloomberg would garner AIPAC’s and Trump would scrounge for leftovers.00:50 12.02.16 | 0 comments
This editorial is factually incorrect. Israeli presence in the west bank is the only thing preventing Hamas from acquiring and firing rockets at Ben Gurion airport. Moreover, the withdrawal from Lebanon and Gaza did NOT grant Israel any legitimacy in the eyes of Europe or the rest of the world. Recall the furious international condemnation heaped upon Israel ruing the Lebanon and Gaza war. Have people already forgotten the Goldstone report?! The fantasy that "bold" and "daring" withdrawals will make the world fall in love with Israel is an old chestnut, totally refuted by the events of the last 5 years. The path to peace lies through a security and deterrent power. The fairy tales espoused by Haaretz will only lead to bloodshed and endless war.
