Richard Forer – Cutting Through the Confusion About Israel/Palestine
(Must Read)

By
Richard Forer


In the
spring of 2009, I was a member of a group that put up a billboard
criticizing Israel’s lethal use of force during Operation Cast Lead in
Gaza. A year later, the group received a letter from a college student –
referred to as “J” below – asking it to remove the billboard. The
student said that he had researched the Gaza invasion and had concluded
that both sides were equally responsible for its consequences. He felt
that the billboard unfairly placed the blame for all of the destruction
solely at the feet of Israel. I replied to the student with the
following letter, some of which contains passages from my forthcoming
book.

Hi J,

Thank you for
your letter. First, I assume you are Jewish. Is that correct? Before I
get into the specifics of your letter I want to talk about a few things
you might find interesting. I do so because everyone involved in the
Israel-Palestine issue has the potential to change the world from an
arena of Us against Them into one of
peace and respect. But that requires undeviating self-honesty, which
leads to compassion, clarity and understanding. Most people do not take
up the challenge of looking deeply within for fear of what they might
find. They revert to the safety of their presumed identity and the
beliefs and images that make up and reinforce their identity.
Attachment to a limited or exclusive identity always carries with it
the consciousness of Us against Them. The consciousness of Us against
Them requires that there be unending conflict.

Yvonne Ridley – Americans in Gaza Freedom Flotilla Prosecuted as
Terrorists

By
Yvonne Ridley

AMERICA is
still embarrassed by the infamous McCarthy Hearings which ruined the
lives of thousands of innocents during the Fifties.

Anyone then,
suspected of being linked to communism was arrested, interrogated and
either imprisoned or forced to give names of others suspected of
communist tendencies. And so the fear and intimidation spread like a
great plague across the USA.

Names were
blacklisted, careers and lives ruined as the authorities ruthlessly
traded on peoples’ fears, paranoia and weaknesses.

With little or
no evidence people were found guilty and anyone daring to question any
of the actions and the wild accusations also had suspicion cast upon
them. But hey folks, that was back in the Fifties and various
administrations resolved the same insane hysteria, hatred and fears
would never again cast a dark shadow across the Land of the Free.

Stuart Littlewood: Israel’s ‘friends’ still shamelessly swinging from
the chandeliers at Westminster

by Stuart Littlewood

atrocity after another, so you’d think that Israel’s cheer-leaders

have the decency to keep quiet and “consider their position”.

reject Christian Zionist doctrines as a false teaching that corrupts
