Jews against Israel

Here's Anthony Lowenstein with a little about how Israel has overstepped the mark in many people's eyes.

The media:
Writing in The Times in Britain last weekend, the group stated: "Israel has a right to take reasonable and proportionate means to protect its civilian population from (Hamas) attacks. However, the manner and scale of its operations in Gaza amount to an act of aggression and is contrary to international law." In other words, Israel is committing war crimes.
Humanitarian groups:
The International Red Cross issued an uncharacteristically harsh statement of Israel's refusal to allow humanitarian access to the war zone.
And something of a collaborator among Muslim countries, Turkey:
Friends are decreasing: "Israel is the biggest provoker of terror in the world," Turkey's Justice Minister said. Zvi Ba'rel, of Israeli daily Haaretz, wrote: "Who has gained so far from the situation? So far it is Hamas, which can claim to have undermined greatly Israel's ties with Turkey, Jordan and Qatar. And it has only just begun."
And their last line of apologists in the west?
A new generation of Jews is increasingly sceptical of the Jewish state's belligerence, threatening the country's future diaspora support.
But what about the priority, the Palestinians?
Israel has consistently failed to destroy the Palestinian spirit
I remember reading a book of quotes from WWI. Apparently after 3 weeks, Kaiser Bill said something like "it's all over and we've lost, it will go on for some time but we have lost". There must be a similar quote from a zionist. somewhere.
