ISRAEL'S ADDICTION TO OCCUPATION



Gideon Levy, one of the most prominent Israeli journalists working with Ha'aretz, speaks about Israel's addiction to the occupation of the Palestinian Territories. He says there are two ways to deal with a drug addict, you can either help them get more drugs, and this may be perceived as care, but it is not friendship. A real friend helps the drug addict get over their addiction. Levy says the Jewish lobby has decided to take the former route, but he is hoping that the United States and the Obama Administration will take the latter.

Levy is author of the weekly column Twilight Zone in the Israeli paper Ha'aretz. He is also an editorial board member of Ha'aretz. Between 1978 and 1982 Levy served in the Shimon Peres office when Peres was the leader of the Labor Party.

I completely agree with Mr.Levy , I also think the israeli lobby is very powerful in both the US government and the US media(fox news is a good example )! I just hope the US will soon start to rehabilitate Israel from its addiction to oppression and occupation , because it can`t go on forever!

Actually , because of the strong Israel lobby in the US , I think Obama will find it hard to be re - elected for second term if his administraction gets though on Israel ! Therefore , his administraction is likely to be patient and soft on Israel until second term !
