(en) Anarkismo.net: Israel, U.S. and uncomfortable truths by Bruno Lima Rocha (pt) [machine translation]

The recent armistice signed between Hamas and Israel was seen as a partial victory for the Palestinian fundamentalist organization. ---- Entering the complexity of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the liberation of Palestine imply confront common sense. As always, the factual truths bother. The bombing of Israel against the Gaza Strip, far from being "just" a response action against Hamas, are also a show of force for the countries of the region, shaken by the Arab Spring. This situation reflects the interdependence of the U.S. to the Zionist state and vice versa. ---- In terms of political realism, this is a situation of double veto. The United States, and have veto power in the UN Security Council, give support Israeli defense, which implies the condition of existence of the country.

In contrast, the largest lobby in the world operates in Washington and its core activity the subordination of foreign policy of the Empire to the interests of the ruling elite of Israel. It is unimaginable to the average American something other than unconditional support of his country towards the western allies in the Middle East. In this sense, even though the West has a historic debt with the Jewish people, the State established in 1948 operates as a beachhead acted just as South Africa's apartheid. So the UN resolutions regarding the creation of a Palestinian state become harmless, and by means of facts, the new country is increasingly distant from being created.

The discourse that runs the West blames Hamas for not going the Oslo Peace Accords. As much as the party-armed Sunni fundamentalist belief is the opposite of any democracy, its secular rival, Fatah, nor is it democratic or legalistic. In 2006 Hamas won the parliamentary elections of the Palestinian National Authority and a year later, in the West Bank suffers a coup of supporters of Mahmoud Abbas. Since then the fundamentalists control Gaza and the region, are simultaneously the resistance against Israel and politically with the rival Fatah. On the Israeli side, any military response against neighbors implies electoral support and facilities in the composition of the parliamentary majority.

The impasse brings two observations. If a Palestinian state is created through conflict, this would lead to a regional war proportions, with the U.S. intervention as an extreme measure. The balance tilts Israeli domestic politics, where a pulsating civil society attempts to revive the traditions of Jewish humanism of peace and universal inspiration.
