    ...or sadistic thuggery, under the cover of Jewish nationalism, would continue to go unreported in Israel/Palestine, as it did for all those years since Independence was declared and the ethnic cleansing began in earnest. Behind closed doors, this Jewish nationalism fanatic...this IDF Colonel.... is probably being feted as a Zionist hero....the phony, official shock and outrage is not fooling most astute Israel observers. After this news cycle passes...this will fade away...I'd wager that the peace activist whose face was smashed with an IDF rifle butt will get nothing from the state of Israel in the way of an apology or financial compensation...and I'd also wager that this Israeli colonel gets to quietly retire and will face no disciplinary action of any great significance. That photo...the Israeli Colonel smashing the peacenik's face with a (US-made) rifle butt..should be placed on posters, T-shirts, banners...it should become an iconic image...like that image of a South Vietnamese policeman summarily executing a handcuffed suspect...or the image of that naked and horrified Vietnamese girl running from her napalmed village. Yes, this image should rank up there with those other images of state-sponsored human brutality. This is Th. Herzl's Utopia?.

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.
