The One-State Reality

The New Yorker, November 17, 2014

 

The settlers, including the most bourgeois, state-subsidized suburbanites, had coöpted the language and spirit of the kibbutzim of the early state; the settlers were the new pioneers. Benvenisti derided the term “occupied territories,” because it assumed a temporary passage of history; it promoted a comforting notion about “when peace comes.” In the meantime, he saw that the Palestinians—in the West Bank, in Jerusalem, in Gaza, in Israel, in the refugee camps abroad, and in the diaspora—were thoroughly splintered in their day-to-day aspirations, their political leaderships, and their identities.

[...] On Monday, the Knesset's Finance Committee will discuss a NIS 2.5 billion addition to this year's defense budget. The following day the committee will deliberate regarding another NIS 1.26 billion.

ISRAELE, Netanyahu il re del Likud

02 gen 2015

Alle primarie di partito di mercoledì, il premier uscente israeliano si conferma per la terza volta consecutiva alla guida dello storico partito di destra. Sconfitti nettamente i rivali interni.

Roma, 2 gennaio 2015, Nena News – Avrà sicuramente festeggiato ieri notte il premier uscente israeliano, Benjamin Netanyahu, quando, leggendo i risultati definitivi delle primarie di mercoledì, avrà letto i nomi finali che compongono la lista del Likud in vista delle legislative di gennaio. Una vittoria netta, inequivocabile che zittisce tutte quelle voci interne che, da più di un anno, hanno reso la vita difficile al primo ministro. Bibi, il “moderato” contro i palestinesi di Gaza. Bibi, il “docile” con i temibili rivali iraniani. Netanyahu ha subito i colpi che gli sono piovuti addosso da più frange interne non cadendo mai a tappetto, ma covando in cuor suo la vendetta. Aspettava con ansia queste primarie per fare piazza pulita. E aveva ragione. Il premier si è riconfermato per la terza volta di fila alla guida dello storico partito israeliano conquistando più dell’80% delle preferenze rispetto al suo sfidante Danny Danon.
