Are you sure she’s a Palestinian? It all looks fake to me.

I was pretty torn between being ticked off they offered no context and the laughing at the sheer tool buzzfeed actually is. Your coverage of this inspiring actress has been great.

Recent experience has shown that land yielded by Israel has become bases for rocket and terror attacks against it. What is needed before the peace process becomes viable again is a cooling off period that would enable Israelis to redevelop sufficient trust in the Arabs to move to a settlement. As it is now, Hamas makes no secret of wanting to oust Fatah and the PA from the West Bank. It makes no sense for Israel to yield land when the prospects for peace in exchange is highly doubtful.

Unless, of course, the Israeli Left has been denied access to Twitter by the Netanyahu Administration. It’s still hard to believe that as bad as Bibi is, the Israeli electorate sees the Left/Center Left as being a far worse alternative, particularly since the Israeli Left doesn’t effectively differentiate themselves from Likud on the Palestinian issue.

People aren’t on a wartime status here, like some people think. Much less, say, than the US “home front” during WWII. But they will still vote security first, quite often.

We just don’t get the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict very well, in part, because we are completely confused by Israeli politics. Chuck Todd, White House correspondent for NBC News and host of “The Daily Rundown” on MSNBC asked in a very weary, exasperated tone of guest Jeffrey Goldberg “What is going on with Israeli politics?” This coming from a very politically-astute reporter and analyst, not some left-wing ideaolgue or Israel-basher. Todd’s question and tone reflects the attitude of lots of Americans.
