I thought they'd just erased my comment, but they removed the entire post. M.J. Rosenberg: "Stifling Israel Criticism: With Link To Tony Judt Piece That Caused Ban"

[The link above is to google cache and dead. The heading but not the body now at Archive.org]

Rosenberg spends most of the time fighting idiots far worse than he is but he's still good for a laugh:
I want the occupation to end, which means negotiating an end to it with the Palestinians whether we like them or not, and thereby preserving a majority Jewish state called Israel forever
"Whether we like them or not." And on top of the same racial nationalism, straight out of Le Pen, Haider and Botha.

Here's a link to Helena Cobban and from her to Uri Avnery:
"IS IT possible to force a whole people to submit to foreign occupation by starving it?
That is, certainly, an interesting question. So interesting, indeed, that the governments of Israel and the United States, in close cooperation with Europe, are now engaged in a rigorous scientific experiment in order to obtain a definitive answer.

The laboratory for the experiment is the Gaza Strip, and the guinea pigs are the million and a quarter Palestinians living there...
