In Favor of Pax Americana

Israel went to wars it had initiated, but never once did it come up with a peace initiative out of free choice.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit confirmed a fact that many people still like to doubt: Israel isn't moderating its positions because of internal developments but because of the need to ensure American support for its security. In this sense, the left remains correct: Israeli society doesn't possess the inner strength to end the colonialism of the settlement movement on its own.
