Israel’s enablers in US do it no favors

WHAT JACOBY and his allies fail to see is that they are the ones delegitimizing Israel. No Jew who cares about human rights can visit the occupied territories, see the apartheid system in place — the wall, the discriminatory laws — without feeling a sense of taxpayer and Jewish responsibility to work for change.

The Palestinian refugee population is the world’s largest. Prolonging their suffering and violating their rights and international law delegitimizes the state of Israel.
