Deane is Right: On the Situation in Gaza/Palestine

One cannot pursue – for 64 years – the catastrophic policy of driving out the majority of the inhabitants of a region, and then claim the moral high ground. It was the result of extreme nationalism and racism when it occured in South Africa; it was the result of extreme nationalism and racism when it occurred in Rwanda; it was the result of extreme nationalism and racism when it occurred in Nazi Germany. Yet it was defended in each of these other countries on ethical grounds founded on assumptions of racial superiority, national election, and divine right. The Israeli policy of eradicating Palestinians from their land will not work, but it will continue to result in direct state violence and prompt violence in return.Time for a different path. — Deane Galbraith

Deane is right.
