Things Left Out
15 May 2001
This is a good short summary but it's a bit bull headed. A deeper examination of anti-Zionist vs. Zionist history will reveal how institutionalized racism increases militancy especially among Arab-Jews. This happened through Western aid originating mostly to releave immigration strains. It continues today mostly by the US ($4 billion a year - 70% for military spending) to uphold its colonialist investments in the region through military cooperation. Context is everything. No conflict is one sided, and writing like this does not serve anyone who seeks a just solution.
The Fever

I agree with Rona, this is a good synopsis of the political and international environment in Israel/Palestine.

Arguably,'s postion would also support the handing back of America to the Native Americans.

Please do not ignore the fact that international policy is of course driven by economics. All the more so in OPEC nations, and Palestine/Israel is strategically located in an area where British and American oil interests are/were entrenched. This conflict is linked to energy, religion and violence, three of the most unpredictable factors in international policy decision making.
