EI (not linked) are whining about Finkelstein’s “broken clock” moment again, this time he’s talked too much about Jews and called BDS a pointless “historically criminal” cult.

The Democracy Now interview. Norman Finkelstein Waning Jewish American Support for Israel Boosts Chances for Middle East Peace

“You read the last sentence of the 2004 International Court of Justice opinion on the wall that Israel has been building in the West Bank, and the last sentence says, "We look forward to two states: a Palestinian state alongside Israel and at peace with its neighbors." That’s the law.
And if you want to go past that law or ignore the Israel part, you’ll never reach a broad public. And then it’s a cult. Then it’s pointless, in my opinion. We’re wasting time. And it’s only a wasting of time. It becomes—and I know it’s a strong word, and I hope I won’t be faulted for it, but it becomes historically criminal, because there was a time where whatever we said, it made no difference.”

The West should condition aid to the Palestinian Authority on cessation of terror-promotion
After two decades of policy failure, is it not about time the West tried a more demanding approach toward the Palestinian Authority?

Most Arabs prefer living in Israel, accept Jewish character of the state
"A full 68.3 percent of Arabs prefer to live in Israel over any other country in the world, according to a survey carried out by Professor Sammy Smooha of the University of Haifa. The survey, held annually, was conducted among a representative sample of 1,400 Israelis, about half of whom were Arabs."

German Government in Hot Water for Supporting Israel’s Right to Exist
Re Israel’s new submarines
"The right-leaning government is being accused of actively participating in Israeli nuclear deterrence, and is being asked to justify its positions. Isn’t it curious that the same parties will not condemn Iran uranium enrichment, even though they are livid about the German civil nuclear program? Or that the socialist party will not speak out about human rights in Iran? It appears that when it comes to politics there is only one easy target everybody can agree on: Israel, and anyone who aids it."

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 12 years and over 25,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
