Haaretz critica il governo israeliano

Il giornale israeliano progressista Haaretz pone una serie di interessanti questioni sull'attacco dell'armata israeliana ai danni dei civili che volevano sbarcare a Gaza e che ha causato 19 vittime:

Tactics. What prompted the decision to stop the flotilla by force - what course of action was presented to the politicians who made the decision and what analysis was made of the consequences of using live fire in any confrontation?

Were there any dissenting views, was there anyone how pointed to the inevitable damage to Israel from any operational failure? What steps were taken to forestall an escalation?

Alternatives. Was any effort made to stop the flotilla through diplomacy, or through negotiation and compromise with its organizers? Or did the government rush headlong into a confrontation, without any thought for the alternatives? Was there anyone who advocated letting the boats through to Gaza, rather than making them a test of Israel's sovereignty and might?

Turkey. What has the government done in the past year to improve ties with a strategically crucial neighbor? How has the prime minister worked to redress the damage to relations with Ankara?

The siege of Gaza. What is the purpose of the siege? Is it just an automatic extension of the previous government's policy, or does it have some practical aim? How much has the usefulness of the policy been discussed during the current government's year in office?

It is clear that public opinion is broadly in favor of punishing Gaza for the continuing captivity of Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit. But the government needs to think about what advantage effect this has on the national interest – and not just on its popularity in weekly opinion polls. Did any of this happen?

Israel's Arab minority. Yisrael Beiteinu's "loyalty" campaign, an attempt by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's right-wing party to enforce laws to stamp down expressions of nationalism by Israeli Arabs, has been followed by the arrest of Arab activists charged with spying for Hezbollah. What effect will this have had on the fierceness of Israel-Arab protest? Did the government consider deepening its ties with the Arab minority? Will it act now, after leading Israeli Arab took part in the flotilla and suspected injuries to the head of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, Raed Salah, aboard one of the protest boats? Have representations been made to Arab community leaders in an effort to forestall internal conflict?

All are weighty issues that demand deep scrutiny by an independent body, which must lay its findings before the international community. Only a national committee of inquiry can meet this need and ameliorate the heavy criticism Israel will face for killing demonstrators.

Anche se non conosco l'inglese credo d'aver capito almeno in parte le critiche mosse da quel giornale al governo israeliano e le questioni poste dall'attacco armato finito in tragedia.

ciao volpe
hai fatto bene a riportare questo articolo, queste sono questioni davvero importanti che necessiterebbero di analisi profondo, oggi c'è ancora tanta rabbia per delle vite spezzate e per quelle che sono sequestrate.
un saluto buona giornata

Credo sia importante soprattutto per ricordarci che le posizioni all'interno di Israele e degli ebrei sono variegate e trasversali. A sinistra sappiamo bene che la questione islamica è molto più complessa di quello che vogliono farci credere, ci rifiutiamo di farci associare a mafia o fasicsmo, poi per qualche motivo ci dimentichiamo dei Moni Ovadia, dei Grossman, di Haaretz. Le persone sono responsabili individualmente. Non dimentichiamolo mai.
