    Instead we got all the tired platitudes which grate on every body’s nerves except the most diehard rightwing Jew: “Bilateral negotiations are the only way to reach a lasting peace” (that is the cart before the horse); America is committed to Israel’s security because that is “in America’s strategic interest in the Middle East” (Israel is a foothold for American imperialism); Israel has a "strong history of reaching beyond its immediate neighborhood" (fantastic talent when you cannot reach within your neighborhood). The knockout came towards the end: “Israel upholds the values that the protesters in Tunisia, Egypt and Syria are pushing for,” such as dispossessing Palestinians and declaring a national home for the Jews. Why does Haaretz waste valuable space on trite like this? None of my business, I suppose, so I wish you a good day folks and do enjoy the rest of September.
