Is Israel Finished? by Dave

I completely agree that the Israeli Governments reckless warmongering and refusal to negiotiate a lasting peace with the Palestinians will continue to cause both peoples to suffer and will ultimately unravel the Zionist dream of a majority Jewish State.  Olmerts justification of the Israeli State seems to be that its the only place where Jews can fight for their lives.  Its also the only place where they need too – thanks to his Government and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.  From the Jerusalem Post (thanks Ann):

Imperial Geography: Palestine by Dave

 Great short film on the history and geography of the Israel-Palestine conflict by David Barsamian.
