How the Netanyahu crowd has destroyed Israel

Where is Israel today?

Fighting a rear-guard action against BDS.

Continuously justifying the unjustifiable in the West Bank and Gaza.

Fighting another rear-guard action against an Iran deal that leaves the Iran nuclear program exposed to the bright sunshine while leaving Israel's nuclear program completely in the dark. Why anyone in Israel should object to such a deal is inconceivable.

Alienating Israel's one essential patron while fighting that fight.

Israel does indeed have an existential problem, and it's got nothing to do with Iran.

It's got everything to do with the Palestinians.

Before Netanyahu, there was always hope, even in the Sharon era.


Show me the hope...

When Edgar Bronfman passed, Israeli media were quick to lard on the plaudits. After all, how could they not? Mr. Bronfman, President of the World Jewish Congress for two decades, was the number one advocate for Israel for a long time.

What none of those obits mentioned, was that Edgar Bronfman ceaselessly advocated for a Palestinian state. He knew what BDS knows; Israel has an existential problem that needs to be resolved if Israel is to continue.

That's not anti-Semitism.

That's reality.
