Only the World Can End the Israeli Occupation. It Won't Come From Bennett

19 13 18

There’s something distorted and exhausting in the criticism of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s failure to refer to the Palestinians in his speech at the United Nations and in blaming him for perpetuating apartheid. The man is a fascist. What did you expect? The country is fascist. Israelis are fascists. A country that operates on their behalf and whose governments are elected by them has been violently occupying another nation since the establishment of the state. First by military rule over Israel’s Arab citizens, and later by occupying the West Bank and Gaza.

There’s no Israel without occupation. There never has been. First the Nakba, then the occupation. Even if Bennett says “two states” a hundred times at the UN, there won’t be a Palestinian state. There is one state. There will be one state. It will be an apartheid state.

It will end if, and only if, the world ends it. First and foremost, the United States, and primarily the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. What will end won’t be the single state. It’s already a fait accompli. The settlers are here to stay.........
