Josh Marshall quotes Marcus Epstein
Diversity can be good in moderation -- if what is being brought in is desirable. Most Americans don't mind a little ethnic food, some Asian math whizzes, or a few Mariachi dancers -- as long as these trends do not overwhelm the dominant culture.
In other words, we don't mean Israel has to be literally 100% Jewish so long as the outsiders stick to marginalized and degraded roles in kitschy entertainment and ethnic cooking.
Epstein makes the argument for the two state solution that that both he and Marshall defend.

And again. The schmuck is half Jewish and half Korean. How is this post-racial?

The sexual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison was not an invention of maverick guards, but part of a system of ill-treatment and degradation used by special forces soldiers that is now being disseminated among ordinary troops and contractors who do not know what they are doing, according to British military sources.
The techniques devised in the system, called R2I - resistance to interrogation - match the crude exploitation and abuse of prisoners at the Abu Ghraib jail in Baghdad.

Laura Rozen links to Hussein Ibish who's a putz.
Ali Abunimah believes what Laura Rozen being a Zionist does not, and what Hussein Ibish being a self-important weakling can not: that Zionism is racism and that a non-racist state in this century is a multi-ethnic one.
So much for the fucking obvious.
