Amazing/tragic Real News segment produced by Lia Tarachansky and featuring Netanyahu’s call for a majority of “the Jewish people” to live in the Jewish state, dancing of American recruits with Israeli soldiers and the Israeli army band, and Max Blumenthal’s interviews of Michael Steinhardt, the American Birthright sponsor, and of young American innocents proclaiming that they’ve found their home. Steinhardt tells Blumenthal there is no occupation: “45 years ago there was no Palestinian people.. there was no one.” But that Israelis– “we go back 3, 4,000 years. Palestinians don’t.” Blumenthal: “We have Methusaleh on speed dial but they don’t.” Steinhardt says he hopes American kids will hook up with Israelis that night. “I am really high.. on Zion. Ziojuana,” says one of the young people.
