1) Some coop members are attempting to use the food coop as a bull horn for promoting a position antagonistic to the State of Israel. A second group of members, mostly Jews, disagree and believe this will be detrimental to the food coop. So, the second group is organizing and using the democratic process within the food coop to prevent it from happening. Is that a news story? Is it so surprising for Jews to stand up for themselves?
2) For people who say the occupation is the sole problem: Have you forgotten the occupation was an outcome of a war instigated by Egypt and Syria, with the intention of "driving the Jews into the sea"? Jordan joined into that war, even though Israel warned them not to. When the fighting stopped, Egypt, Syria and Jordan refused to make peace. The Palestinian Authority turned down peace offers in 2000, 2002 and 2008. The occupation continues because the Palestinians won't make peace. Instead of making a deal with Israel, Mr. Abbas made a deal with Hamas, whose charter calls for killing Jews. Not Zionists, not Israelis, but Jews.
Get it right: Arab terror organizations are not opposed to Israel because of the occupation. The occupation exists because of Arab terror.
