weak commentary. The govt seems focused on pleasing the mass media and foreign governments with following thru on this pullout as part of Oslo obligations. Yet no one including Israel gives thought to encouraging the growth of democratic and liberal thinking institutions in the territories. with no interest in a democratic palestine, we are on course to have an islamic palestininan state with sharia law.... if so, let the jews stay there so long as they agree to live as dhmmni and pay the Jizya poll tax- this is acceptable to the Quran. Complementing this, Arab muslims should be allowed to stay in Israel with similar status to the jews in the territories. If the jews are going to be forced out of the West bank then muslims (arab muslims) must also be prepared to leave Israel. not exactly a democratic statement, but who really cares about the rule of law these days? its all trial by media.

IfNotNow and its co-founder Simone Zimmerman challenge U.S. Jews to end the occupation. But they won't answer this basic question: Do you support a Jewish and democratic state in Israel, alongside a Palestinian state? And if not, why not?16:02 05.05.16 | 1 comments
