Link of the Day (2): Sept 16 2010: Haaretz writer Amira Hass tells the bald truth about the “peace process” now under way with Obama’s oversight. In one of the most terrible paragraphs of modern journalism he writes: “Lieberman (Israeli Foreign Minister)…knows what he's talking about when he says no peace agreement will be signed, even in another generation. A peace agreement is not a business contract. It requires a change of values of a kind that does not exist within the vocabulary of the democratic Jewish state, which elevates the system of double standards to a level of virtuosity. The people of this state are incapable of imagining themselves departing from the privileges that this system confers. And who cares if the flip side of those privileges is dispossession, suppression of freedoms and the risk of regional conflagration?"
