    Sarkozy whispered sweet nothings into George W. Obama's ear that "Netanyahu" is a "liar" and based on the real politics of the world quickly one can snap back and say so what because leaders of countries are to some degree are expected to be not totally honest on the other hand who the hell is Sarkozy speaking of when he and Obama and most major western political leaders are the biggest liars in the world, their governments are based on lying, secrecy and the complete lack of transparency in almost every area. Sarkozy and Obama have one thing in common they both suffered almost a complete lack of credibility and though I understand the ADL shrewdly attempts to trade its silence on those matters and other matters for support of Israel I think it is merely cheap that the ADL should be presenting views that address a wider concern that western leadership is pushing the world into conflict. turmoil, and chaos where one day western leaders are found pushing for Arab Spring and against Qaddafi and then shown to be in bed with Qaddafi where the CIA and MI6 made Gaddafi a junior partner in their rendition torture schemes. Answer this: what makes better western partners backward corrupt decadent reactionary ones that fully support Israel or enlightened healthy progressive ones that nominally support Israel but whom stabilizes the world: For didn't Hitler once support removal of the "Jewish question" from Europe and Germany to the British Palestine merely to cause the British grief? Sarkozy is a liar, as is Obama and Angela Merkel as well as incompetent on many grounds. B"H they don't shoot themselves and the rest of the world as Israel's "friends".

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.
