John Kerry Rebukes Israel

Civic nationalism doesn’t apply to Israel

What do you think?

Are you ready for Sheldon Adelson’s foreign policy? What do you think of David Friedman for ambassador to Israel, giving Netanyahu a free hand to colonize the West Bank, moving the US embassy to Jerusalem or the looming confrontation with Iran?

The most amazing thing about US foreign policy toward Israel is how the American consensus on “civic nationalism” completely disappears: the Right argues for Jewish supremacy and colonialism in the West Bank; the Left argues for a two-state solution in order to preserve Israel’s character as a Jewish state.

Jewish Power is so overwhelming that the “mainstream” argues over whether Israel’s best interest is served by Jewish supremacy or Jewish separatism. The concept of an American interest or Palestinian interest doesn’t exist.
