Israeli publisher slams US ambassador for ‘perpetuating apartheid’ in West Bank

US Politics
on 46 Comments

The last few days have seen more open battles inside the Jewish community over the illegal Israeli settlement project in the West Bank. The rhetoric is more bitter than ever. Apartheid, say the liberals. While conservative Jews describe the settlements as the heart and soul of Zionism. We’d like to predict a crisis in the American Jewish relationship to Israel, but who knows when that will ever happen.

To start with, on Friday, Haaretz publisher Amos Schocken openly criticized the US Ambassador to Israel– former bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman– for perpetuating “apartheid” and violence through blind support of the settlement project.

As  JTA reports, the battle began when Gideon Levy published a column in Haaretz on the killing of a  29-year-old Israeli settler and called out Friedman for his personal financial support for the man’s settlement, Har Bracha. “Describing Har Bracha, which means ‘mountain of blessings,’ as an Israeli land grab, Levy said it should be called a ‘mountain of curses.’”

Friedman responded angrily: Levy and Haaretz have “no decency.”

What has become of .@Haaretz ? Four young children are sitting shiva for their murdered father and this publication calls their community a “mountain of curses.” Have they no decency?

Haaretz publisher Amos Schocken backed his columnist up by criticizing U.S. support for apartheid:

Mr. Ambassador Gideon Levy is right. As long as the policy of Israel that your Government and yourself support is obstructing peace process, practical annexation of the territories, perpetuating apartheid, fighting terror but willing to pay its price, there will be more Shivas.

Schocken joins a distinguished list of those who call it apartheid (even as US journalists deny this reality). And BTW, Donald Trump even criticized the settlements this weekend, as an obstacle to peace.

Here is a second incident on the coming break between American Jewry and Israel. In a piece on the special relationship drawn from a forthcoming book on Israeli strategy, former Israeli government official Charles Freilich says that Israeli settlements are an “existential” issue for Israelis because they are of “supreme ideological importance.” But because of intermarriage, American Jews are losing that Jewish story.

It is amazing that such reactionary thinking should come from a scholar at Harvard, Freilich’s latest role; but here’s his blood-and-soil endorsement of the settlements:

[L]et’s be honest: if Iran is an issue of existential importance, so is the future of the West Bank as a whole, not only from the perspective of defense but also in terms of Israel’s future character as a nation. As for Jerusalem and the settlements, they are of supreme ideological importance. A large majority of the Israeli electorate considers Jerusalem to be the very heart of Judaism and of Israeli statehood, and a substantial, highly motivated, and well-organized minority opposes any concessions on the settlements. Out of strategic as well as ideological considerations, an overwhelming majority is similarly attached to Israel’s control of the Golan Heights.

(This is just what we reported about Israeli political culture during a tour of the settlements two years ago.)

Freilich is worried, as so many Zionists are, by the growing partisan divide in the U.S. over support for Israel– “when Israel’s image in the liberal media and on college campuses has become one of a brutal and even racist occupier.” And Jews play a “problematic” role in that decline, because of — you guessed it, intermarriage.

[A]mong, specifically, younger American Jews, only about a third of whom (as compared with 53 percent of those sixty-five and older) now view Israel as a very important component of their Jewish identity. If, in 1981, more than 80 percent of young Jewish Americans reported that Israel’s destruction would be a personal tragedy for them, by 2007 fewer than half felt that way, and 25 percent even thought that the United States was giving too much support to Israel. Low birth rates, high intermarriage rates, and assimilation continue to undermine the strength of the Jewish community, historically an irreplaceable source of support for Israel.

Freilich castigates J Street, Peace Now and President Obama for being critical of Israel. Before he praises AIPAC as a bipartisan organization — exactly what Jane Eisner, Tamara Cofman Wittes, and Daniel Shapiro have done out of fear that the Democratic Party will offer shelter to anti-Zionism.

Another factor is the erosion of the centralized approach toward Israel that long characterized the organized Jewish community. Today’s ideological divisions, exemplified by the rise of Peace Now and J Street on the left and of American Friends of Likud and the Zionist Organization of America on the right, have weakened AIPAC’s heretofore unchallenged role as the sole representative of the pro-Israel community and exercised a negative impact on the leverage available to the pro-Israel forces as a whole. As the trend becomes more deeply embedded, it is likely to cripple the American Jewish community’s role as Israel’s “strategic hinterland.” And this is happening at the same time as the two groups in the United States among whom support for Israel is the lowest—Hispanics and the religiously unaffiliated—are growing rapidly.

Frelich also notes that BDS is working–

ongoing efforts at the delegitimization of Israel have severely undermined its international standing

and that Israel’s “standing among traditionally friendly states, especially in Western Europe, has collapsed.”

He concedes that the settlement project is a burden on the United States.

Of course, a resolution of the Palestinian issue would be one of the most effective means of reducing Israel’s dependence on the United States, and would also greatly reduce Israel’s international isolation and make it harder for Iran, Hizballah, Hamas, and others to pursue their anti-Israel agendas.

So which is it, intermarriage or apartheid that is endangering Israel? Apartheid, surely.

      Exactly.

      Maybe this is significant inside the Jewish “community”, but from outside it sure seems like one set of bigots (take their land and kick “them” out…) is debating another set of bigots (I sure don’t want “them” diluting my country so two-states/the two-state charade is necessary…). This seems like an argument over which form of bigotry should be at the heart of Zionism.

      I find it nauseating.

    The model of an ethno-state, isn’t really of much use, to Jews in pluralist democracies. Zionists, like Frelich, seem surprised that American Jews would consider Israel in terms of relevance to our own situation; but, why wouldn’t we? A bi-national state would’ve been far more relevant, and therefor interesting, to us. Unfortunately, most early American Zionists, who should’ve known better, simply caved to the European Zionists with their racial-nationalist worldview. I can’t blame the Europeans for being what they were. It was Americans betraying their own values, who blew it. Really a tragic waste of an historic opportunity to create an holistic multihomesland.

      If I were you, I’d be most concerned about the exodus of Jews from Israel and its rapidly declining image abroad, including among Jews:

      By Doug Saunders,
      Canada’s Globe and Mail, November 16, 2013

      EXCERPTS:
      “Have you heard about Europe’s Jewish exodus? Amid growing tensions and tough economic conditions, tens of thousands of educated middle-class Jews are fleeing every year – not out of the continent, but rather from Israel into Europe, and especially to Germany, which has become the chief destination (after the United States) for the half-million Israelis who have left the country amid its much-discussed ‘brain drain.’

      “This has taken both Israelis and many Europeans by surprise – and offended some Israeli leaders. Last month, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, during a visit to Budapest, took to Facebook to denounce the growing wave of Europe-bound Jews who have become known in the Israeli media as the New Yordim (emigrants, or literally, ‘fallen’).”

      “European countries are seen by Israelis as stable, egalitarian and safe, while in an Israel governed by hard-line regimes, the zealots and the Orthodox seem destined to prevail. ‘With all due respect,’ Jerusalem Post columnist Susan Hatis Rolef recently wrote, ‘I think it is physically safer for a Jew to live in Berlin these days than in Jerusalem, though I do not belittle the emotional difficulty involved for a Jew to do so, given the not-too-distant history.’”

      “She listed the reasons for the exodus: ‘loss of hope that peace will ever prevail … discomfort with the lack of determination of Israel’s leaders to make a serious effort to separate religion and state … and the feeling that life in Israel frequently feels like life in a pressure cooker.’”

        hops: Lenni Brenner said exactly this .. – that pro-Palestinian activists didn’t have to worry because the Jewish birthrate was decreasing and there would be fewer Jews to stand up for Israel

        the irony is, it’s not the pro palestinian activists worrying about a jewish birthrate. it’s the handwringing of zionist jews we hear. it’s not the pro palestinian activists worrying about high intermarriage rates and assimilation either. again, it’s the zionist jews. the thing is, there is no dwindling jewish birthrate, if anything quite the opposite. that jewish birthrate is just not translating into a booming zionist birthrate. they just aren’t birthing the right kind of jews. that’s the problem. and by looking at the poll data http://mondoweiss.net/2018/02/zionisms-california-comfortable/ , my hunch is this is partly due to the diversity in the new generation of [bay area]jews; 38% of jewish-american 18-34yrs households “include a respondent or spouse who is Hispanic, Asian-American, African-American, or of mixed or other ethnic or racial background (other than white)”. 27% > 35-49yr and % keeps dropping the older the generations. the chances those 38% of jews raised diverse households will become more conservation, more zionist with age? not likely.

        anyway, not to get too offtrack. yeah, you can’t make this stuff up. hops pushes the idea mondoweiss “advocate[s] low Jewish birth rate” and backs that up by claiming Lenni Brenner made exactly the same claim! wonders never cease!

        Little did Lenni Brenner know that at any time the # of Jews available to stand up for Israel can easily be increased:
        – by encouraging more people to undergo a religious conversion to Judaism and thereby acquire the right to return to their ancient / historic / one true homeland; and/or
        – by making Jewish the bureaucratic nationality of the citizens of, immigrants to and expats and refugees from “Jewish State”.

        ” because the Jewish birthrate was decreasing”

        “Hophmi”, when you say “the Jewish birthrate”, do you include babies born to couples where only one partner is Jewish?
        Or is the “Jewish birthrate” decreased only when both partners are Jewish, but don’t have children, or enough of them?

        (Perhaps the number of Jews having children is about the same overall for individuals of a similar demographic group [yes “Jews sui generis“, of course] they’re just not having them exclusively with other Jews. And thus a ‘declining Jewish birthrate’?)

        And you know what, “Hophmi”? If Palestine had a fraction of Australia’s attractions and resources to offer, Zionism might could have gotten away with it, too. Be even easier if the “indigenous population” conveniently got sick and died off from communicable diseases in a premedical age, too. But those aren’t the circumstances in Palestine.
        Also, Australia was able to withstand the consequences of the mistakes and atrocities of colonialism. Similarly, no one can deprive Israel of the consequences of its actions.

        Every Zionist wants a priori absolution for a genocide to occur at the time and place of their choosing. The fantasy of a Zionist genocide as a necessary and laudable step in the making of a great nation is one they bring up time and time again.

    I am not sure where chuck Freilich stands on the issue of territorial compromise regarding the west bank, but there is little question that giving back the west bank would lead to extreme intra Jewish conflict. And regarding jerusalem, specifically the temple mount, aka Haram El sharif, the ceding of that spot to the Palestinians would be traumatic to large number of yehudim. Personally I favor ceding the temple mount, there cannot be a 2 state solution that can avoid such an outcome. A Palestinian state that allows Israeli soldiers to stand in the path of Muslims who wish to visit the Haram will never be accepted under foreseeable circumstances. But such a ceding would cause widespread turmoil, particularly for a peace that Israelis of all zionist gradations, and even nonzionist gradations would view as dangerous and far less than a sure thing. Giving up the temple mount would be a blow to many yehudim and would in all likelihood require unprecedented American pressure.

    A calm analysis of the Israeli voting public is important and given such an analysis, freilich’s use of the term existential is close to the mark particularly in regards to the temple mount. Pessimism regarding a 2state solution is well placed, and partially because of the temple mount.

    How the US should handle the situation and how the assimilation of American Jews and their loss of vibrant Jewish identity play into this are separate questions. But using the term existential is accurate or certainly quite close to accurate in regards to the temple mount.

      ritzl- nonorthodox Judaism in America is on a steep downhill decline demographically and I was offering vibrant Jewish identity as an opposite to this decline.

      In response to your comment I looked up the etymology of vibrant ( half expecting something akin to vivacious, as in alive), but of course vibrations as in agitated and swaying was the actual derivation. Swaying, of course, reminded me of how orthodox Jews pray, Swaying back and forth, in yiddish the word is, shokeling, thus it put me back in mind of the aliveness of the orthodox community and the disappearing-ness of the nonorthodox Jewish groups.

        ” nonorthodox Judaism in America is on a steep downhill decline demographically ”

        You say that as if it were a bad thing.

        “In response to…/… the disappearing-ness of the nonorthodox Jewish groups.”

        Wow, the literal physiology of an acute pilpul over-dose, displayed right there in one paragraph!
        And by the time “yonah” is done, he’s conjured up hordes of Orthodox Jews which are leading all the percentages.

    Falling birth rates are characteristic of increasing affluence everywhere.

      “Falling birth rates are characteristic of increasing affluence everywhere.”

      Let me be frank: If Jewish reproduction is not governed exclusively by the needs of Zionism, instead of affluent convenience, the Zionist project will not prevail.

    I can’t even talk to relatives. Ohyour attackingme when utalk about I/P justice. I’m like yes you are so important that your “Feelings” are more important than justice for a nation-STATE of humans who have no State but are a Nation.

    It is not only the falling birthrate that undermines Zionism and therefore Israel . It is also the decline and degradation of Israeli Zionist behaviour which shows no sign of slowing down…it just plumbs lower and lower every day.
