Ouch. Blementhal doesn't hold back, I will read his book "Goliath...".Max Blumenthal at New America Foundation on Israeli polices to 'finish 48'
“We hear this cry,” said journalist Max Blumenthal at a much anticipated lecture for Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel at the New America Foundation (NAF) Wednesday afternoon. “Finish 48.” Blumenthal said the Israeli policy of home demolitions and evictions, that Palestinians often call the “on-going Nakba,” is part of a process that began in 1948 that Israel’s rightists want to finish today.
This cry, Blumenthal tells us, is from the World Zionist Organization as they court Jews to move into the predominately Arab regions of the Galilee and the Negev for the stated purposed of “balancing” demographics.
“We hear the calls to finish 48” from the Prawer Plan, where the Israeli government will evict 30,000 Bedouins from their villages—leaving them homeless and without a resettlement option. When foreign minister Avidgor Lieberman campaigned for Likud in 2009 under the header “No Loyalty, No Citizenship,” this was a call to “finish 48.”
