Thread Name: BS: Palestine
Subject: RE: BS: Palestine
Norman Finkelstein and Noam Chomsky have it right. This isn't a personal issue that some on Mudcat have wanted to make it. It's not about silly squabbling.

The Zionist Movement has been corrupted as has the financial and political system in the U.S.

The Palestinians are reacting because their backs are up against the wall.

Violence and terrorism are not right. They're not moral.

The "Authoritarian" model of governance is doomed to failure.

Blame doesn't solve anything. A deeper understanding about tribalism and the role of ideology is needed to solve this issue.

I would like to see more intelligent discussion of this issue and less reactionary name-calling.

Otherwise what's the point of this thread?
