Timidity of Israeli government

Reader comment on item: Why Israelis Shy from Victory

Submitted by Martin Zukoff (United States), Sep 6, 2018 at 15:21

This should be added to the list - the refusal by Bibi & his government to proclaim to the world that there is no so-called occupation (Jews are the indigenous people of Judea & Samaria) & that Jews have every legal & historic right to establish communities in Judea & Samaria. Why doesn't Bibi ask the world - when did the West Bank & East Jerusalem become Palestinian land? What could they answer? This failure to allow the myth of "occupation" to persist has done enormous damage to Israel & diaspora Jews. American college students are facing harassment & assault because Israel-haters on campus confront them with this accusation - Jews came from Europe & stole Palestinian land. And young American Jews are forming organizations like IFNOTNOW to "fight the occupation" & are becoming anti-Israel.
