Spot The Difference: The Poster

My post contrasting our attitude towards our children vs the palestinians’ approach has generated a significant amount of interest, so I’ve decided to put it in poster form for those of you who have been known to attend pro-Israel parades and anti-BDS protests.

    Regarding opposition to the BDS movement, I read an interesting twist on this effort by Peter Beinart on The Daily Beast today. He proposes supporting businesses who operate in what he calls democratic Israel (i.e. inside the green line) and boycotting businesses who operate in undemocratic Israel (i.e. the West Bank). I suspect Mr. Beinart is going to get it from both the political right and left, but it is an approach consistent with supporting a two-state solution. I’m not sure if you can make a clear distinction for each Israeli business as a practical matter, though.

      I propose dropping Beinart by parachute into Gaza. Perhaps you, too.

        Here I am trying (at times) to elevate the IsraellyCool Comments section into a penetrating discussion of the Israeli/Arab Conflict and your approach is to turn this into an episode of “The Itchy and Scratchy Show” from the “Simpsons.” Away with you, ruffian.

      Beinart is an idiot whom I boycott. Israeli business make no territorial distinctions and all this is irrelevant to any peace process as long as Arabs refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

        Are the Arab residents of Nablus and Hebron supposed to recognize that their communities are an integral part of the Jewish state of Israel? This is kind of the point the proponents of a two-state solution have been making for a long time now. And I can’t think of anything more idiotic or self-destructive for the state of Israel
        than to propose mass expulsion and/or extermination of the Arab population living in the West Bank as the Arutz Sheva crowd advocates every day.

        • Norman B.

          No, I only demand that they recognize that Israel is a Jewish state, something they have never done even when the West Bank was Judenrein. Only then can the parties negotiate the “secure and recognized boundaries” that UN Resolution 242 calls for. And if as a result of this endless intransigence, Arabs slowly get squeezed out of their turf, it serves them right.
