The country’s main lobbyists in the US may end up hastening a one-state solution, much to their own dismay. The occupation and the Iran nuclear issue have swallowed up Israel. Unless you live there, the only sense you get of that country is that it is obsessed with Iran, maintaining the occupation and exploiting the Holocaust to keep critics of its policies on the defensive. No wonder a billionaire-financed organisation has to pay for college students to visit Israel. Without the “subsidy”, who would voluntarily go to a place that its advocates portray as a combination of war zone and Holocaust memorial?
