"Utter desperation and sheer frustration is evident in the conduct of Israel politics. It cannot win the battle waged in the court of public opinion. Nor is it able to attract more Jewish immigrants as it did in its hey-days when "kibbutz" were all the rage. Today's reality is that the Zionist regime is bankrupt."
Jeff Halper, head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, said Mr. Barkat’s idea of fairness was “ridiculous”....“In the past 15 years there have been more than a thousand Palestinian homes demolished in East Jerusalem versus absolutely no settler homes,” he said. “In fact, no settlers have ever lost their home in East Jerusalem.”

"Palestinians deserve reform and democracy and those, who in their quest for political power are exploiting the despair, must be stopped. But for the reform process to be sustained and for the purveyors of violence to be isolated and stopped, it is freedom and opportunity that must be expanded, through a radical transformation of conditions on the ground."
"Russia heals wounds while NATO is signing its own death warrant with its current hubris. The people of Europe, as opposed to their compliant politicians, want to be nuclear-free, just as they want their troops out of Afghanistan or wherever, and at some point will have their say. The Dutch government already collapsed on the issue. Estonians, still in their honeymoon stage with NATO, fete their Euro-warriors and willingly send their handful of troops to kill Afghans, but their more blase cousins the Finns have recently joined the Euro-majority in wanting their troops out either immediately or within the year. Their mutual WWII foe, Germany, is even less enthusiastic, with 62 per cent wanting out. Their mutual WWII ally, Britain, is even less so, with 77 per cent wanting out...A recent memo from the CIA -- which has nothing to do with NATO, of course -- targets France and Germany to shore up public support using propaganda about drugs, terrorism and women's rights. But the best-laid plans of mice and men go oft awry."
