Gideon Levy: World must interfere in Israel's internal affairs

25 Dec -- Of all of Israel's complaints against the world, one is especially brazen: Goodness gracious, the world is meddling in the Jewish state's internal affairs ... Israel may be the last country on earth with the right to be outraged over foreign interference. Since its founding, Israel has not ceased working around the world to bring Jews here; it has clandestinely carried out underground subversive activity among shady regimes; it has openly preached abroad for Jews to leave their native lands and immigrate here, or at least send financial support; and Israel has moved heaven and earth against manifestations of anti-Semitism and supports parallel alternative Jewish and Zionist educational systems around the world. It is also a country that simultaneously calls on the world to maintain the blockade of Gaza because of Hamas' rise to power there. Israel has acted in Lebanon and elsewhere in support of one communal faction against another. It has not ceased to meddle in the internal affairs of foreign countries and entities, so of all countries, it should not be heard to complain about foreign interference.

  1. Should every country interfere with every other country? Should we live in a world where every country has an empire and where every country is part of the empire of many other countries? Where every individual is an emperor and leads their own empire?

    I think so. Perhaps Gideon Levy is trending in this direction. But when I propose these ideas, many laugh at me. Why?

  2. You want me to tell you why people laugh at you anan?! You really want me to?

  3. Israel is insane with nukes. Should not be left unguarded.

  4. Right on Gideon.

    Anyone who watched Israel's last two wars on TV (what we were able to see that is,) should agree wholeheartedly.

    And if that's not enough, they want the US to invade Iran or back them.  Evidently the average Israeli is insulated from the pains of war that have been so close over the last ten years.
