    Mr. Ami Goldman: Which "...Israel's point of view..." would you have Al Jazeera defend? Now, if the Zionist state of Israel were to adopt a constitution that acknowledged the rights and liberty of all people and guarantee equality w.r.t. the law; if Israel were then to enforce that constitution as the foundational law of the land that no other law could violate - THEN there would be a point of view that Al Jazeera could defend to the Arab world. THEN there would be an example in the M.E. of genuine democracy. THEN Israel might conceivably become a legitimate ally of the U.S. instead of an albatross. THEN Palestinians and other Arabs would not be legitimate in opposing Israel's policies. THEN Lebanon would probably be an ally. THEN the citizens of Arab countries, thanks to Al Jazeera might have a genuine example in Israel and an ally in overcoming the medieval authoritarian regimes and their radical Islamic fellow travelers. Too many Israeli points of view are Zionist poison.

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
