    “Improvement/Defense,” comYics?

    The settlements add little the the “defense” of Israel, and improve little except the chances of certain pols to be re-elected. A country with such violence being rampant on both sides can not call itself secure, and the widespread settlements aggravate the situation both in Israel itself and between it and its neighbors. The Palestinians’ plight has been a rallying cry for extremists for decades.

    When will we admit AIPAC also represents “extremists”, that maybe Israelis willing to negotiate, and STOP violations should receive more support from the U.S. to push for settlement, instead of illegal settlements?

    Calling for more support for the Israelis actually seeking peace is NOT “anti-Semitic”- but recognizing that after centuries- it’s time for all sides in that tribe to sit down and settle their INTRA-tribal pettiness.

    Of course the “brilliant” Europeans from Britain and France who came to North America also tended to force rival Native tribes onto the same ground, or surrounded one with their mortal enemies–on reservations. It is interesting that after only a couple centuries, these “uncivilized” people HAVE generally learned to live with each other and end their INTER- tribal wars.

    Jim said ”מעל פשטני”: Cartoonists cannot tell an entire history in one frame, but their pictures are usually worth a 1000 words. This one tells us a lot.

    Pup said “The Obamonomix metaphor keeps showing up in the cartoons…”

    And what does a political comic criticizing the continued building of Israeli settlements in the West Bank have to do with Obama? Was the President born in Israel now? All this time he was a Jew pretending to be Muslim pretending to be a Christian just to get elected?

    Of course, now that I’ve said it, /someone/ is going to believe it.

    In the 50’s everyone feared the “communist under every bed”, today, the fatuous ignorati of the right fear Obama in every picture and word.

    Pup said: “Obama is the wrecking Ball!”

    So you’re saying Israel is using Obama to destroy the Mid-East peace talks while it continues to build settlements in the West Bank?

    I wasn’t aware Obama was even involved in the peace talks.

    To see the true logic, it can be useful to imagine; take the dial to both ends of the scale, or even past.

    One end; Israel decides that the only way to solve their ‘problem’ is to eliminate all the people who were living there when Lord Balfour ‘gave’ them that land; problem solved? Well, then we’re back to Hitler’s ‘final solution’. Lots suspect Likud etc. of just that. It just may be that Israel, as a state, is living out a form of ‘Battered Child Syndrome’ - that’s how you treat neighbors of ‘that sort’ - Us vs. Them.

    Another end; Israel decides that the way out of the quagmire is to quit Apartheid, and live within some equitable, negotiated set of borders, so there’s room enough for everyone, and the tempers can simmer down. There will be occasional breakouts of ‘eye-for-an-eye’, but as Ghandhi said, ‘until the whole world is blind?’

    Mechanical engineers build weapons; civil engineers build targets.

    pbarnrob, Who are those who suspect Likud (especially, etc???) of such things? You suggest for peace they should “… quit apartheid and live within some equitable negotiated set of borders…”. Firstly, there is no apartheid, There is diversity within the entire population as well as WITHIN the Jewish population. Secondly, all previous attempts of peace with their neighbors have been met with intransigence to say the least. Unilateral concessions make little sense. It has been a long path, but Israel does have civil relations with Jordan and Egypt. (At its face, I see the decision to build settlements not particularly beneficial; however, methinks it could be the carrot on the stick) We shall see.
