Letters to the Editor
Alon Ben-Meir continues his futile attempts to reduce the ongoing Israeli settler-colonial enterprise against the Palestinians as a mutual problem solvable by principled negotiation. That’s not the reality. A point of clarification: Palestinians had nothing to do with the Nazi Holocaust against the Jews. Jewish Israelis on the other hand are directly responsible for the Nakba – Palestinian dispossession and the theft of their lands, homes & businesses – and the Nakba continues today. Until Israelis acknowledge this, end their occupation of Palestinian territories, end the apartheid, and commit to repair the harms done, there will be no peace or security in that troubled region.
