Norman G. Finkelstein (De Paul, Chicago) explains the odds set by the Israelis: you kill one of ours, we kill 400 of yours; and so on. The little terror state of Israel, nearly indifferent to world opinion, can keep on killing and growing as long as it’s backed up by the U.S. Prof Finkelstein outlines Israeli war crimes in Gaza and Lebanon and notes that Israel’s last war on Lebanon, intended to wipe out the Hezbollah, was “a disaster for Israel and a defeat for the U.S.” And like many in the U.S., Israelis are beginning to recognize that their governments lie to them as a matter of course.
