    You say that the arguments of zionists before 1967 do not apply after 1967 because somehow the world is different. I have studied the events surrounding the six-day war extensively, and I can assure you that a jump by Earth into an alternate universe with different rules did not occur. Here is what did occur: Egyptian President Nasser, with funding and arms from the USSR, forged an alliance of five Arab countries (Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq), and announced that Israel's destruction was imminent. He then proceeded to mass his army in the Sinai and to blockade Israel's ports (an act of war and a violation of the agreement under which the Sinai was returned to Egypt after the Suez War). Israel then carried out a legitimate pre-emptive strike against the Arab alliance, and it is only for this reason that it survived to see 1968 (Soviet intelligence gave Israel a 3-5 day life expectancy once the Arab invasion began).

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
