A New Year Just Like the Old Year
Jennifer Rubin Wants More War
Israelís friends frequently claim that critics hold Tel Aviv to a higher standard than they do other countries that have similar or worse records on human rights.
Actually the truth is quite the reverse, with Israel frequently able to escape censure for actions that would normally result in the imposition of sanctions by the United Nations Security Council and condemnation by other international bodies.
I am of course referring to the continued brutal Israeli occupation of much of what remains of Palestine and the ongoing colonization of land that is being appropriated illegally, activity that is only allowed to continue because of Washingtonís willingness to protect Israel no matter what cost to other American interests.
Some of the gyrations that Israelís supporters engage in would be describable as comic if the consequences of their obfuscation were not so serious. And there is no one better at throwing mud than Jennifer Rubin, the Washington Postís designated "Right Turn" blogger who is one of those folks who believe that being in love with Israel is a core conservative value. Rubin can hardly write about any current issue without somehow turning the discussion to poor little Israel, or, alternatively, to evil Iran.
