About this deal

And so that stern wave of his hand was what brought Lydda under Israeli control and transformed it into the Ramleh/Lod municipal district. Riding into Lydda in an armored car he dubbed the “Terrible Tiger” at the helm of the 89th Commando Battalion was a little known career soldier. This was an amendment to Israel’s Citizenship law, which requires new citizens to swear loyalty to the Jewish and democratic state, which relates completely to Jerusalem, where Palestinian residents who live in occupied East Jerusalem are offered the option of taking citizenship, but this is an attempt to pretty much rule that out. Because the mood of the Israeli public, particularly young Jewish Israelis was one of frustration with an endless peace process. Blumenthal interviewed a huge number of people for Goliath and incorporates into his analysis a vast range of commentary, reportage, legislation, and personal narrative.

Blumenthal's book is packed with remarkable vignettes illustrating the dangerous path Israel is currently following.Unfortunately the Zionist now had the Holocaust to hold over the world and their argument now seemed to have some true merit, the Jews had earned the right to their own state. His host was political scientist Ian Lustick, author of the September 15 New York Times essay, “The Two-State Illusion,” which argued for a single Israeli-Palestinian state.

Jonathan Jeremy Goldberg (October 31, 2013) "Israel Book That Makes Even Anti-Zionists Blush", The Forward; accessed March 20, 2016. This was an attempt to upend or nullify the Kadan ruling by the Supreme Court, which had allowed one Arab family to take up residence in one of the mitzbeh communities, which are small all-Jewish communities built in the north of Israel surrounding Palestinian towns and cities to limit their natural growth.Bestselling author Max Blumenthal has written an incredible expose on the self-imposed siege of Israeli civil society, documenting how the authoritarian political right has dismantled civil liberties while the left remains paralyzed and ineffective. The finished impact is one in which we see the idealism of post war Jews utterly destroyed with the rise in Israel of the same ultra nationalism that led to the Holocaust.

And just by allowing one Arab family to purchase property inside one of these towns, inside of Israel, who are citizens of Israel, necessitated this law. Der US-amerikanische Historiker, Journalist und Bestsellerautor Max Blumenthal hat sich insbesondere mit der Politik der Republikanischen Partei und Israels auseinandergesetzt. An explosive exposé into the radical right-wing state of Israeli politics from one of our most controversial investigative reporters and the bestselling author of Republican Gomorrah.This can only end in a bloodbath, may be not tomorrow but eventually unless compromises are made by the leaders of Israel and those of the Palestinians.

If his focus can be distilled to a singular theme, it would be the consistent mendacity on display across political, economic, and cultural strata in Israel vis-à-vis the inherent iniquities of the Zionist project. Haneen Zoabi, the most visible representative from the Balad party which advocates a state for all of its citizens, was banned by the Israeli Central Election Committee from running again.But once you land and seek to depart from Israel you are immediately classified in ethnicity, your religion, even your gender. Furthermore, if those who decide the allocations of the real and unreal are cruel, mad or colossally wrong, what then? There was an Israeli imposed curfew and he was inside Lydda hospital, and he is overcome with horror at what he had witnessed. But those who fear for the image of this land would be well advised to respond to the challenge and to deal with his flowing descriptions of the struggles he witnessed and of the brave souls he met in one of the most divided and conflict-ridden places in the world. You will have Israel with democracy for Jews and votes for Palestinian Israelis but with institutionalised discrimination against them in areas such as property rights or army service (only Jews are allowed to do national service which is mandatory, with Bedouin recruits used for the ‘grunt’ jobs: there is no role for Palestinians).
