As Israeli leaders continue talks on assembling a coalition, we’re joined now by a former Israeli politician who’s emerged as one of his government’s biggest critics. Avraham Burg is a former Speaker of the Israeli Parliament and former Chairman of the Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Organization. His new book is called “The Holocaust Is Over: We Must Rise From its Ashes.”

AMY GOODMAN: Should Israel pull out entirely from the West Bank and Gaza?

AVRAHAM BURG: Tomorrow morning. No, actually, yesterday, yesterday evening. No doubt about it.

That was very interesting Q
Thanks for the post!

Thanks for the post. I really appreciate it. While I find myself agreeing with many of Mr. Burg’s points, I find him extremely dangerous for existence of Israel as an independent state.  With your literacy and proficiency in searching the web, if you could post a similar interview with a current or Ex official of Hamas or Hezbollah, who would (on the record) denounce Hamas’s charter for destruction of Israel, then it becomes a puzzle why we don’t have peace?

Mr. Burg’s danger comes from his belief that Israel should unconditionally converse with Hamas.

Q, would you talk to someone who says I’m here to destroy you, no matter what?


Thanks again for your post, but would you please search for a similar post from the opposing view point?

The only problem and

The only problem and challenge the world, not only Obama, faces is your beloved Fascist IRI regime.


The first result of the collapse of the IRI regime is the fair and permanent peace between Arabs and Israelis.


Everything that Israel does when it comes to the IRI regime is in self defense against IRI’s aggression. Nothing more, nothing less. IRI started irrational animosity between Israel and Iran, Israel didn’t.


Until IRI is in power, the world will never see peace.
