    Welcome to the debate. I read the transcript you point to. It does not cover any of the issues brought up in the Goldstone report. It does not give a reason for the killing of 31,000 chickens or the total destruction of the Cement factory. The destruction of which, without good military reasons, is a war crime. It did not go into why the IDF bombed a hospital, UN facility, fired White Phosphorous at civilians, forced civilians into a house before destroying it or used human shields. Explain just the first issue which was a war crime. Why did the IDF kill the 31,000 chickens? What was the military objective which would have justified it. You will have no answer as there is no answer. The IDF committed war crimes in Gaza. You would not admit it at any price as to do so is to admit your implied complicity. Your army, the IDF, committed war crimes and you support them. Forget any of the excuses that the world must examine every other issue before it turns it's attention to Israel.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
