Gaza blockade easing, boycotts, and a takeover of the WZO

Things just move too fast in the Middle East to keep up these days.

And in commentary, Gershom Gorenberg says despite American Jews’ dissonance on Israel’s illiberalism, there are now new venues for the expression of your values. “Don’t give up. Get involved.”

  1. I looked for reporting, blogs, official press releases about the WZO stuff. Looked at their websites in English/Hebrew, etc.
    The very Zionist groups most involved in WZO are maintaining radio silence on the whole event. Is this odd or normal?

  2. Was there an election for this year’s World Zionist Congress? Did I miss it?

  3. The larger Zionist orgs rammed through a “stand still” order prohibiting elections this year. They knew they would lose a huge amount of seats. (Ron Skolnick of Meretz USA did us the kindness of allowing us to repost his report on their chicanery back in January.)

  4. P.S. Nobody is talking about the WZO committee takeover or the passage of the anti-settlement resolution! It’s not really registered except on JTA.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
