Simone Susskind’s selection on the current crisis…


Daughter of Jewish immigrants who found refuge in Belgium in the thirties, Simone Sussking has devoted a large part of her social and professional life to promoting the secular, humanistic side of Jewish identity and working for a world that respects difference.

Simone Susskind’s last mailing contained six links – all to articles we had not flagged up previously on this website, and all worth reading:

1. Israel’s moral decadence

“Even if the fleet to Gaza is irritating and outrageous, a sovereign state cannot treat every act of protest as a terror event that has to end in bloodshed”

Yariv Oppenheimer, Peace Now

2. How Israel plays into Hamas’s hands

“A policy aimed at keeping Gaza isolated has allowed Hamas to tighten its grip on virtually everything in the strip”

Jun 3rd 2010 | GAZA AND JERUSALEM | From The Economist

3. Israel’s siege mentality

“The government’s macho attitude is actually making Israel weaker”

Jun 3rd 2010 | ISRAEL AND THE WORLD | From The Economist

4. Israel has no opposition and no alternative

While Zuabi was savagely attacked in the Knesset – Livni kept mum. When the blockade continued – Livni kept mum. After Israel brutally abducted the flotilla ship – Livni skipped from one television studio to another, justifying the operation with frightening alacrity.

Gideon Levy, Haaretz, 6 June 2010

5. A Puppet on a String

“How insecure, confused and panicky a country must be, to act as Israel acted!”

David Grossman, Haaretz, 2 June 2010

6. Saving Israel From Itself

“President Obama needs to find his voice and push hard for an end to the Gaza blockade.”

Nicholas D Kristof, New York Times, 2 June 2010
