    -Have your eyes failed to see that the most undemocratic and brutal regime in the region is the Israeli occupation in the territories?- Thank you Mr.Levy. That is indeed how it looks to an unprejudiced observer. Israel since 1956 has been granted a kind of extraterritoriality to the norms of international law, and after 9/11, which enabled the ignorant with a loud voice to confound a sanguinary worldwide jamboree of Islamic fanatics with the legitimate cause of Palestinian nationalism, a political solution is unlikely. We grew up with politicians with a strong sense of history, and the need at times for exceptional and painful decisions or statements of principle: Eisenhauer in 56, de Gaulle in '67. The political dwarfs who represent us today are third-rate figures who, in lieu of real solutions, clown about with ceremonial gestures towards them. The pleasures of the limelight outweigh the hardwork of pulling nations back from the brinks of errancy towards a secure future.

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.
