Bombing an open-air prison called Gaza


Glenn Greenwald, reminding us why the Israeli military is able to be so brazenly aggressive in its treatment of Gaza, which Noam Chomsky has called “the world’s largest open-air prison:”

…That the Netanyahu government knows that any attempt to condemn Israel at the UN would be instantly blocked by the US is a major factor enabling them to continue however they wish. And, of course, the bombs, planes and tanks they are using are subsidized, in substantial part, by the US taxpayer…

Why such unswerving support of Israel? Because the U.S. is honor-bound to bolster the only true “democracy” in the Middle East? But what good is democracy at home if your foreign policy is oppressive and destabilizing to the point where a major war is always a possibility?

Just asking questions the mainstream media diligently avoid.
