Time to take a wide open look at U.S. policy regarding Israel

March 16, 2010 | By | 1 Reply More

At Huffpo, David Bromwich has written a passionate piece highly critical of traditional U.S. policy regarding Israel. According to Bromwich, some U.S. journalists and politicians are finally starting to make some noise where it has long needed to be made:

[T]he door to an honest discussion of Israel and Palestine has been opened wide. Too wide for AIPAC, and all its journalistic outlets, to close with their usual dispatch. We are in possession now of the realistic knowledge that Israel’s policies endanger American troops and American interests; that by creating new terrorists, those policies also threaten the security of the United States.

    Naomi Klein discusses proposal of a highly influential Israeli think tank:

    "[T]he Reut Institute, arguably Israel's most influential think tank, published a very controversial report about "hubs of delegitimization." It attempted to equate tactics of non-violent resistance—like the growing movement to use Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) to force Israel to comply with international law—with a military campaign to destroy the state of Israel."
