Rabbinic human rights group T’ruah calls for transparency on donor money spent on settlements.17:48 08.10.15 | 1 comments
There are no legions of Palastinian liberals campaigning for a two state solution based on mutual respect or the legitimacy of Jewish and Palastinian claims. As far as I can tell, Palastinains universally reject the Jewish state but some are willing to put up with it as a permanent fact of life and others only as a termporary situation. Neither recognizes the legitimacy of the Jewish State or Jews as having national rights. That your opponant believes you are not legitimate is not a reason to act unethically, but no one should expect that if Jews act ethically it will produce Palastinian liberals who accept of Jews as a people with their own national claims. Palastinains will define their goals purely in terms of their own perceived interests without any regard for Jews other than the cost they must pay for benefit obtained. In making that calculation, they would expect they can get more from Stenger than from the Yesha counsel, but it would be foolish to expect at the end of the day that they have any more regard for Stenger than the do for the Yesha counsel. They will continue to dislike them both.
