    Paulette: Thanks for sharing this. When I lived over there, I followed Gideon Levy’s comments regularly in the pages of the Haaretz print edition — it’s the only mainstream Israeli media outlet reliably offering a balanced perspective on all that goes on over there (some content is free on-line, the rest by subscription). To whatever degree Levy seems strident and ‘over the top’ at times, I believe it’s because he knows so much, sees so clearly, and cares so deeply about issues of justice. (Likewise for Haaretz reporter/commentator Amira Hass.)

    Levy’s speech in the video goes back almost 2 years now, to the 2016 U.S. primary election season — and I wish it felt more dated, but it doesn’t! All the same issues are still there: With America as its chief facilitator, Israel blithely tramples underfoot another people, with no end in sight. The main difference under Trump: America, officially, no longer even pretends to embrace notions of fairness, decency and human rights with regard to the Palestinians. Meanwhile, our involvements in the larger region seem custom-designed to promote maximum chaos and perpetual war…
