    Despite no change in Syrian behavior that caused Bush 2 to sever diplomatic ties, despite Syria's Hariri assassination, despite Syria's massive rearming of Hezbollah in violation of UNSC1701 - our idiot boy in the White House decidedto reward Assad with renewed diplomatic ties, and INCREDIBLY - with repeated praise from Hillary that Assad was a "reformer"???? The outcome was entirelypredictable - Assad interpreted this as a green light to step up the regime's violence to a new level, with assurance of no heat from the Obama team - which is exactly what we now see. Libya gets NATO airstrikes, but all Syria gets from the Obama regime is 40-lashes-with-a-wet-noodle "condemnations", a far less hysterical response than Bibi got for issuing paperwork for a new apartment to be built in Jerusalem in 3 years.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
