    however israel wishes to see itself, outside the country, the very name "Israel" has become synonymous with brutal occupation and dispossession of another people. A day does not go by that we don't hear about the myriad of ways israel is flounting the law - most often its own. Whether its the Kamm/Blau affair that brought to light the policy of "targeted" murders against unarmed people who happen to be palestinians, or the irrational rejection of the findings of the Goldstone report which held israel to account for war crimes, or the new expulsion orders from the west bank or the endless uprooting of ancient olive trees on which livelihood of people depends - it all adds up to one very ugly picture. Israel which held itself once to high standards, has sure slid down the slippery slope to something akin to Pinochet's regime and the junta ruled Myanamar. The movie exodus is a fading memory and the high tech industry a footnote. When the world sees Israel now, it's all Lieberman & Dagan
