American Jews are falling out of love with Israel

Norman Finkelstein was on BBC Hardtalk recently, the topic being discussed – American Jews are falling out of love with Israel.

Finkelstein argued that American Jews are now so unhappy with the murderous and quite frankly indefensible actions of Israel, that they want to distance themselves from that country.

Watch out, the Hardtalk presenter Sarah Montague looks to be an Israeli hasbara agent.

Dr. Finkelstein is adept at putting zionists firmly in their place, even beating the trump card of the holocaust, as this old blog piece testifies.

And if you still want more, I’ll direct you to read “On the Crisis of Zionism” an article on the much discussed Peter Beinart book. You know when Rolling Stone magazine starts covering Palestine it’s getting to be a pretty mainstream issue in America.

Recently Hebrew graffiti denouncing Zionism was sprayed inside Israel’s own Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in occupied Jerusalem:

Translated into English, the above reads as:

“The war of the Zionist regime is not the war of the Jewish people”

  1. The drone that recently hit Syrian news, as used by the Assad regime, was it manufactured in Israel? Israel manufactures drones, I am interested in Israel’s policy towards Syria, the conflict could serve Israels interest, in having a “Incident” that requires Israel to expand its territory?

  2. in terms of americans falling out of love with israel, this is something that even israel recognises – and not just falling out with israel but with judiasm too (remember the israeli advert encouraging american jews not to marry non-jews?). however, an impression can be easily gotten that suggests that by falling out of love with israel they’ll fall in love with palestine – i don’t buy this. a lot of the support for policies and continued support for israel comes from the christian right which informs a lot of republican members and politicians.

    the best the palestinians can hope for is an increased awareness of their plight and a demand for human rights to be respected – something the media doesn’t care about.
