Democracy for our friends and dependence for our enemies

With the proposed Gaza withdrawal, much of the world’s media is failing in its duty in not telling its readers the true agendas of Ariel Sharon, the US and the pro-Israel lobby.

I’m writing a series for online magazine New Matilda on these matters. My first piece is here. My second article is published today. I discuss America’s commitment to Middle East “democracy”. What exactly does this mean for Israel/Palestine?

“Sharon told his right-wing supporters some time after announcing his Gaza plans: ‘My plan is difficult for the Palestinians, a fatal blow. There’s no Palestinian state in a unilateral move.’ His true ambitions lie in surrendering Gaza and annexing large parts of the West Bank. This is already occurring and yet still America backs the plan.”
