    Jewish history compounded by the cataclysm of the Holocaust have given birth to a deeply embedded mentality that Israel can never exist in the world without extraordinary security, that it's neighbors, nay, the world community can never be trusted. The mentality of "we are alone and because of what the world has done to us we are not beholden to the same rules as other nations. How can any nation continue to exist like this as their existential condition? There can never be peace in thei scenario. Israel has and will never compromise territory in the heartland of Biblical Israel or occupied East Jeerusalem. The facts on the ground already today make that an impossibility. Where would a contiguous Palestinian state come to be? Because of domestic concerns in the US annd the "Israel can do no wrong" mentality of the bulk of US Jewry, the US government is constrained from holding Israel to account. The status quo will continue, settlements will grow, but Israel will no longer be able to uphold the ruse that it is both "Jewish and democratic". It will certainly be Jewish as more rules are passed further alienating the Arab population and ghettoizing the WB and EJ even further. The result of such a predictable trajectory is clear. Israel itself is endangering its own survival through its chosen course..

Jeremy Corbyn at a pro-Palestinian rally in London, 2014.
Why Britain’s Labour Party has suddenly become synonymous with anti-Semitism
