    Interview with Charles Freeman

    “The only thing I regret is that in my statement I embraced the term ‘Israel lobby.’ This isn’t really a lobby by, for or about Israel. It’s really, well, I’ve decided I’m going to call it from now on the [Avigdor] Lieberman lobby. It’s the very right-wing Likud in Israel and its fanatic supporters here. And Avigdor Lieberman is really the guy that they really agree with. And I think they’re doing Israel in. “

    1. Chas Freeman is wrong. The Israeli public, at least its electorate, has elevated Lieberman to the status he currently holds. They are responsible. It is not exactly a secret that he is a fascist. Why put the blame on right-wing Likud? What is the difference bet. Likud and Labor?

      It’s not Likud was leading the nation in support of the massacres in Gaza. According to the polls 85% of the people were behind the massacres, the slicing and dicing of Palestinian children with the newest and best weapons from the US. Let’s put the blame where it belongs.

      Those who do not speak out, and act, in resistance to oppression are just as responsible as those who carry out the oppression.

  2. To be sure, “Israel Lobby” is a thoroughly inaccurate term for these guys, but “Lieberman Lobby” might be a bit too extreme – “Bibi Lobby” seems about right.
