On the Future of Israel and Palestine
An Interview with Ilan Pappé and Noam Chomsky
By FRANK BARAT
Barat: […]Do you believe that Israel’s appetite for war could eventually lead to its self destruction?
Ilan Pappé: Yes, I think that the aggressiveness is increasing and Israel antagonizes not only the Palestinian world, but also the Arab and Islamic ones. The military balance of power, at present, is in Israel’s presence, but this can change at any given moment, especially once the US withdrew its support.
Noam Chomsky: I wrote decades ago that those who call themselves „supporters of Israel” are in reality supporters of its moral degeneration and probable ultimate destruction. I have also believed for many years that Israel’s very clear choice of expansion over security, ever since it turned down Sadat’s offer of a full peace treaty in 1971, may well lead to that consequence.
Barat: What would it take for the U.S to withdraw its unconditional support to Israel?
Ilan Pappé: Externally: a collapse of its Middle East policy, mainly through the downfall of one of its allies. Alternatively, but less likely, the emergence of a counter European policy. Internally: a major economic crisis and the success of the present coalition of forces working within the civil society to impact such a change.
spre deosebire de dershowitz, reuseste sa se autociteze exact, si asta la un interval de citiva ani; pentru amatorii de lingvistica, puteti observa cum distrugerea israelului inseamna fix opusul acesteia cind chomsky este cel care decodifica versete din ahmadinejad
miscarea free gaza – are drept scop declarat ruperea blocadei asupra fisiei gaza; ajutoarele umanitare reprezinta unul dintre mijloace; iar chomsky, unul dintre sustinatorii principali
28.04.2010 – freegaza, editia 2010 – operatiunea scut uman cu habauci (absenta notabila in teren: chomsky)
The Freedom Flotilla Sails to Gaza in May
On May 24, 2010, the Freedom Flotilla sets sail for Gaza determined to, once again, challenge Israel’s blockade of 1.5 million Palestinians trapped in an open-air prison.
de ce sint intelectualii anarhisti suporteri infocati pentru astfel de incidente? pentru ca au invatat la istorie ca razboaiele mondiale asa se pornesc; si ce poate fi mai fecundant pentru gindirea unui umanist decit o catastrofa de proportii traita pe viu de la o distanta rezonabila? cite carti despre un viitor mai bun, cite descoperiri epocale despre natura umana asteapta dupa colt?…
