Three cheers for Turkey!!!

Ambassador Tan, from the bottom of my heart, many thanks to your countrymen for sending relief to Gaza. This is indeed waging peace as Jimmy Carter would put it. I am so glad that someone is doing the right thing.

Israel’s land grab and brutal occupation

Jimmy Carter describes the reality of the occupation. We are borrowing money from the Chinese so we can send aide to Israel to subsidize this.

The nature of ultra-Zionist Hubris

Paul Rosenberg

Let’s put it bluntly: The “pro-Israel” crowd is not pro-Israel at all. They are pro their own narcassistic self-infatuation. They do not love Israel any more than a stalker loves a celebrity. Neither the love nor the object is real. It is self-centered, self-obsessed infatuation that is above all a cowardly, terrified retreat from the real world. And vitally important as the emergence of J Street has already proven itself to be, it represents, so far, mere baby steps at the beginning of a long pathway to recovery. Recovery from a form of addiction that deludes itself into thinking it is love.
