Israelis can count on being targets for terrorists for…well…ever.
Or at least until climate chaos renders nation states obsolete.
…as long as it continues to terrorize its neighbors.
“Israeli politics have moved so far to the right, that it is hard to understand how or why the US media continues to refer to Netanyahu’s opposition—as a ‘center-left’ coalition.”
Well, “US media” has had years of practice refering to its own country’s Democratic™ Party as a “center-left” coalition.
Israel is a nation based on race. Nazi-Germany was also a nation based on race. Israel didn’t have a problem with that except for the fact that the jews were considered inferior to the Aryans. Now the Jews consider Arabs as inferior to Jews and the pattern of racism continues.
In more advanced countries, societies are pluralistic with a seemingly infinite mosaic of different people living together. While societies like that usually thrive, secular governments rule and racism is rejected at all levels. Like South Africa, Israel must come to an end, at least under its current racist mandate. It is the duty of all people on the planet to apply whatever pressure is necessary to end this cruel and backward practice. A One-State solution is the only solution that will complement a humane and progressive future forward for all parties involved. BDS is a good start, but we must go further by demanding that our politicians take a public stand against apartheid everywhere, even if it means criticizing America’s most beloved ally.
Did we notice which country is not being mentioned in connection with the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure. You know, the one behind all of this middle-east turmoil. ISRAEL.
They bask in the shadows like a thief in the night.
And like most of us shit-headed countries, half of the population are decent people suffering under a rogue government.
