    Whatever Israel does is seen a wrong. AS far as large parts of the left are concerned, Israel can do nothing right. Israel is the pariah state and the scapegoat for everything that is wrong with the world. The left will have to find another country to blame. Well, there's the US, but we all know that US foreign policy is controlled by "the powerful Jewish lobby." (I am being sarcastic. There are posters who believe it.) I write this sadly because I am on the left myself. I would like to a settlement based approximately on the 1967 borders. Israel could withdraw to the 1948 borders and its image would not improve with many on the left. Also antimsemitism on the left goes back to before the state of Israel existed. I'm not saying that I agree with Olmert's latest plans. I do not. The EU will never understand why a fence may be necessary for now. There is nothing Israel can do about that. A unilateral withdraw will prevent Israel from turning into an apartheid state.

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.
