That such a country is completely nonviable doesn’t interest them; it’s what Israeli leaders have led them to believe is possible. Most of all though it’s what they want, and they are used to getting what they want. And if the people, Israeli and American Jews, aren’t as enthusiastic about this vision as they are, they will find people to sell it to them as “Hope”.
Anything can be sold with the right marketing. Throw together enough organizations, inject peace and the Two-State Solution into every conceivable arena until it seems as inseparable a part of Israel as the Tembel, and just as foolish, and keep pushing the politicians to deliver this “Peace” thing. If there’s no peace, hire some experts, give them a few organizations and let them work out why there isn’t any peace and how the government, and those farmers and herders in Judea and Samaria are to blame.
This disgusting orgy of hollow organizations populated by the greasy leftovers of rubber chicken dinners is what passes for Jewish leadership these days. These are the people who not only invested with Madoff, but who dragged the charitable organizations on whose boards they sat, into making those same bad investments. But Madoff is small potatoes compared to their “Peace Process” investment, which may only be a decade or two away from killing the Jewish State.
The Peace Business is bad under Netanyahu, so the hedge funders get together, summon their lawyers, bring in a few of their more famous friends, and draft a letter telling the Prime Minister of Israel to stop paying attention to the law and start paying attention to them. And it he doesn’t, then he had better stay tuned for the next letter and the next phony organization they create to harass Israel.
Israel is in a range war, not only with Muslim terrorists, but with lefty billionaires who would like to see a few hundred thousand farmers, herders and small businessmen kicked off their land in the hope of securing the rest of the country within the 48 borders. The Levy Report bothers the peace barons, as does every new house and barn that goes up, every new field planted and every new vineyard tended, because it tells them that they may not get their wish. That despite their money and the organizations that they create; the victory will in Israel’s range war will not go to the billionaire on Wall Street, but the farmers and herders of Judea.
