While the facts of the article about the consternation within the democratic party may be accurate, Israel is also making her own advances on the diplomatic front I may have missed on Mondoweiss.
Their diplomatic initiative in Africa, where Bibi was extremely warmly met in Kenya and other African countries, establishing new overt and covert diplomatic front. In addition, the diplomatic initiative between Turkey and Israel has led to warming ties, albeit based on realistic, cold gas initiatives that benefits both countries. Finally, the ties between Israel and Egypt are also warming up quite a bit.
My point. Actually it’s two-fold.
1. Yes, BDS may be a growing movement in the democratic party. But, there is considerable push back between elites versus activist base, but it is not a monolithic issue either…. as Trump does not represent all republicans…. neither does Cornell West represent all dems or liberals….
2. Israel is also making their own diplomatic initiatives based on trade, defense, agriculture into Africa that is bearing fruit. See also India, Egypt and even Turkey as examples where realistic trade, military and diplomatic reasons exist for closer ties between Israel and the rest of the world(outside of the US and Europe).
