    No Charlie, it's not racism with Israel decides to keep out a population whose leaders maintain policies of human rights abuses and war crimes. Yes, both Fatah and Hamas still advocate attacks on Israeli civilians - a war crime. No, Fatah does not support a 2-state solution (go read their website). And Benn was wrong in his analysis. The Palestinians at every step of the way have demanded separation from Israel: their leaders don't want them working here, they don't want them buying our products, they don't want them socializing with us (loosely termed "collaboration" even if you're just working for an Israeli to feed your family). Who are the racists? Look at the Palestinian policies and statements against the Jews. Look at the Palestinian record of terrorist attacks. Of course we're shutting them out, so would you if your neighbor didn't just threaten to kill you, but repeatedly sent bombers and gunmen to do it. The palestinian supporters are the true racists.

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope
