It is impossible to accurately assess how much damage the latest episodes of racism caused Labour, but at least in two constituencies which include Jewish communities, the party suffered losses.15:39 06.05.16 | 0 comments
The problem is that Israel holds all the cards, and the Palestinians hold none. Israel sets a very high standard for what Palestinians have to achieve without a government more military; a complete cessation of all illegal violence, stability, and recognition. Meanwhile, Arab houses are destroyed and new settlements are built. The way Israel has used America to protect this activity has been damaging to us and has exploited a special relationship. Most Americans, myself included, want to see Israel defended from its major enemies, but we don't want Israel to so heavily victimize so many innocent people. Freeze settlements, and negotiate which ones to keep later. Freeze home destruction in E Jerusalem. And offer E Jerusalem as a co-capital. What would that really cost Israel? It would still have America's protection from Existential threats!
