Israel’s troubles and defenders

It is becoming increasingly difficult for the Israeli government, its representatives and advocates to get a fair hearing even in US campuses. Look at the desperation of Oren’s host here, as he virtually pleads with the crowd to stop heckling Oren.

The Gaza blockade explained by an Israeli official:

“The Karni crossing won’t resume operating,” said one. “At least not as long as Hamas controls the Strip.”

Remember, this is after rockets have fallen to practically zero (after a mutual ceasefire, and thena unilateral ceasefire). The Israeli government is teaching the Palestinians a) they must vote for collaborationist parties or suffer the consequences b) Israel alone has the right to commit terrorism.

There will come a time when people will be asked why they were silent during the siege on Gaza, and why they didn’t speak out.
