Zionist Extremism

June 18, 2017

Dear stan,
The rift between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas appears to be widening. As usual, it is the people of Gaza who will bear the brunt of the consequences of the dispute. Meanwhile, the Netanyahu government is trying to get the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinians in the Near East (UNRWA) dismantled ostensibly because Mr. Netanyahu cares so much for the Palestinians and he is of the belief that the agency “perpetuates” the Palestinians’ problems and doesn’t solve them. This makes sense since Israel has the best interest of the Palestinians at heart.  
In the last week there were all sorts of conferences and panel discussions in which Zionism and Israel were discussed almost exclusively by Jewish Zionists.  Here is a contemplative piece on the damage done by chronically “unbalanced” panels.
It’s somewhat encouraging that a room on Capitol Hill was filled to capacity for a Palestinian student’s description of what it is like to grow up under occupation. The author of this essay argues that the Palestinian minority inside Israel is indispensable in bringing about a just conclusion to the conflict and please don’t miss Phil Weiss’ reactions to the Israel he observed on his recent trip to the region.
Thanks for reading,

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
