    It is a high priority for Israel and the Jewish lobby to convince the Jews everywhere that Israel is invincible. This is one of the methods they use to maintain undivided Jewish support both for the lobby and for the state of Israel. Therefore we see now an attempt to portray the coming Palestinian victory as a result of oversight on Israel's part, or a tactical error. Actually Palestine will win the UN battle even if Prosor had all the time he needed to prepare his defense. Israel has all along been the looser, but the US had the power to protect it. The economic foundation of US hegemony is now seriously damaged and new centers of power friendly to the Arabs or less beholden to Israel are increasing their strength and wealth. Simply stated, Israel’s dysfunctional behavior could be covered by the US as long as the US’s economic and military superiority was so great that it could intimidate the world, but this is no longer possible, so Israel is the looser.
