In a very interesting story, Danny Ayalon, Israeli’s Deputy Foreign Minister and one of the notoriously right-wing members of the Netanyahu government has made a video supporting the occupation of the West Bank – er, excuse me, Israel controlling the “disputed territories” (after you watch the video, you will understand).  But, the truly interesting part is that the images used in the video were exactly the same as those used for a pro-settler lobbying group.  Gal Beckerman in the Forward says:

Ayalon’s video is identical, image for image and in large part word for word, with one he made in May for the YESHA Council, the organization that represents and lobbies for the settlers.

    “Notorious right winger”? Really? Is that some sort of crime? Maybe you missed out on the news, but the right-wing parties won the last election, and so what if they support the position of the settlers? In any event, I am sure you know it was Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres who have the big boost to the settlement movement in the 1970’s…before the LIkud/Right parties ever came to power.
    In the end, all Israelis are “settlers” and the Arabs view ALL Jewish communities in Israel as “illegal settlements”. So it is time to put a stop to the double-standards of the Israeli Left.
