    Great analysis. Indeed Israel is damned if it does and damned if it doesn't. Writing from Europe I've always wondered why our media only show footage of collapsed buildings, screaming women and turbulent burials in Gaza after another IAF raid and never images of damage or victims of the constant shelling of south Israel. To me this is proof of Israel having lost the PR-war. I don't understand why it it so difficult to show to the world that Israel defends itself rightfully against an enemy that has indeed it's destruction as mission statement and fights from a densely populated area without consideration for its own population.

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.
