First, Ali Abunimah puts his finger on the cause of Israel's endless bombing and shooting campaigns against the 100%-imprisoned population of Gaza, especially the nonviolent protesters near the gates: Israel is very happy to continue these murders, with the impunity granted to them by the international community. They can sell weapons to other warring countries, saying they are "battle-tested," as though shooting unarmed civilians involves a "battle" with two sides.

Then our feature: Israel continues to maintain that it is both a Jewish and democratic state while continuing to move more boldly toward apartheid, segregated state. Its latest Nation-State law is a case in point. If there ever was a question about Israel’s democratic intent, the passage of the Nation-State law should effectively end all debate on the issue. Jewish supremacy reigns at the expense of democracy. You cannot have both as the State of Israel now illustrates. This morning, Columbia University Professor, Joseph Massad explores the myth of this Jewish/democratic state and turns it on its head.
