The shame that is Israel has been around for 100 years. Defining characteristics include racism, apartheid, and colonialism. So what are the chances that the United States, which has never acknowledged its own genocide of Native Americans nor the criminality of slavery and Jim Crow, will ever recognize or take responsibility for the oppression of millions of Palestinians?
That is the central question that surrounds all genocides, and Palestine is no exception. However terribly Israel treats its five million subjugated people, it is the United States that makes it all possible. The Israeli colony is just part of an empire that few in this country even acknowledge.
Dr. Khalidi looks at the long picture. Israel cannot forever be an apartheid state. The world has progressed too far to allow something like that to happen. The Palestinian people are immensely resourceful and they aren't leaving. Israel will have to resort to a Nazi like Holocaust to get rid of them. If that were to happen, the United States will have become a fascist state, the Third Reich of the twenty first century.
The battle is here at home; apartheid Israel must be stopped before it comes to define America.
