Shameless Dershowitz Campaigns For Israel

Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk Jan 31, 2015

Alan Dershowitz, recently implicated in a sex scandal, is campaigning for Israel. The shameless Harvard Professor is begging for Jewish support following recent Zionist leaders calls to dissociate from him and his acts.

Interestingly enough, Dershowitz is correct – the West Bank Settlements are not an obstacle as far as peace is concerned. If anything they make the One State Solution into the only viable resolution of the conflict.   The real and only obstacle to peace is the embarrassing fact that the word ‘peace’ doesn’t even exist in the modern Hebrew language.
The word shalom, usually translated into peace doesn’t really mean peace, harmony or reconciliation. Shalom actually means ‘security for the Jews.’ As such, Shalom is a non empathic  judeo-centric notion  sustained by blindness to otherness. The only obstacle to peace in the Middle East is the lack of the notion of peace within the Israeli and modern Hebraic culture.
Once again, it is the comprehension of Jewish culture that enlighten us on the conflict and the prospect of its resolution.
