What Occupation? Israel’s Annexation Plan
The Israeli Report that Israel is not in fact occupying the Palestinian territories – despite international consensus to the contrary – has provoked incredulity or mirth.
What are Occupied Territories if not Occupied?

Israel’s New Strategy: Downgrading Iranian Threat and Peace with Palestine?
Mofaz has publicly contradicted the whole thrust of Netanyahu’s strategy by downgrading the threat from Iran and suggesting that a peace settlement with the Palestinians is actually more important.
Do you think they are actually supportive of a two-state solution- or is this just an attempt to pacify critics by going through the motions of due process?

Religious groups are infiltrating secular politics in Israel
“Israel is possibly the only country in the world where the religious right has taken the initiative to infiltrate secular political parties in an apparent effort to increase their influence and grip on the state. [Editor: …America?] This phenomenon has been attracting attention in the past three years because of its real-time effects that are capable of re-drawing the fault lines in Israeli politics and the repercussions this may have on the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

Neo-Zionism: Israel Needs a New Narrative
‘Despite the fact that Israel is now a well-armed (nuclear) sovereign state, both narratives lock Israel and Jews into permanent victim status–a lens that could lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy. There are two ways Israel might be eliminated. One is by the actions of external forces; unlikely, given the consequences for any nation that would try to obliterate the country. The other is by the actions of its own leadership.’

Anti-Zionism & Aipac: Israel’s Government is Destroying Democracy
‘It’s not just about politics. The religious right’s real answer to the demographic question is allowing Jews living abroad to vote in Israeli elections. Netanyahu already acts like the “king of the Jews,” and is in our far-flung country only as a representative of his real electoral district: the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.’

Justifying Injustice: Yet Another War for Israel?
‘Consider this revealing “thought” as expressed recently in Alert, the voice of AIPAC to its membership: “Some Americans believe if the Israelis strike Iran, the U.S. will pay the political costs anyway, so it would be better for the Americans to do the job and do it properly. Their clock is a bit different from the one the Israelis hear. Because of their vastly superior firepower, the Americans could strike Iran later, more devastatingly and more sustainably.” How just is it for AIPAC’s mouthpiece to declare that America should “devastate” Iran because it has “vastly more firepower” than Israel and could “do a better job” and “do it properly,” as though this were a clean-up “job” of a waste dump and not an illegal invasion of a member country of the United Nations that has done nothing under international law to threaten the U.S. much less attack it, while the Israeli government and its IDF look on happily content that it is American boys and girls suffering the consequences of the unwarranted attacks and not Jewish boys and girls? Has it come to this, that unnamed Israeli spokespeople, voicing AIPAC’s policies, determine what nation the U.S. should invade without consultation with the representatives of the American people?’

Signal to Israel and Iran: Obama Delays U.S.-Israeli War Exercise
‘U.S. participation in such an exercise, obviously geared to a scenario involving an Iranian retaliation against an Israeli attack on its nuclear facilities, would have made the United States out to be a partner of Israel in any war that would follow an Israeli attack on Iran.
Obama and U.S. military leaders apparently decided that the United States could not participate in such an exercise so long as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to give the administration any assurance that he will not attack Iran without prior approval from Washington.’
