    "The Jewish people's right to sovereignty and self-defense is now controversial." (Ari Shavit) Pure undiluted nonsense. First, because Cast Lead WAS NOT a self-defence war of the Jewish People. Then, because not one of all the civilized and democratic countries is questioning "The Jewish people's right to sovereignty and self-defense." What IS controversial is the right of the Jewish STATE to be the only democratic country on earth to force its will and its settlements on a foreign and stateless population. THAT is what is being questioned, and Ari Shavit is deliberately propagating a lie. Not that we haven't been warned, 29 years ago. "Not only will the effort to annex the territories not provide security, it will weaken the capacity to protect ourselves from our neighbors' hostility and THE OPPOSITION OF THE NATIONS." From an Open Letter to then-PM Begin, 1980, by Jacob Talmon (1916-1980), professor of Modern History at the Hebrew U of Jerusalem, and 1957 Israel Prize for Social Sciences. www.fmep.org/analysis/analysis/a-prophetic-message-from-the-past
