Three cheers for Israelis calling for a return to the 1967 borders

Go online. Google today's 'New York Times Online'. The eye will find coverage of the annual 'Israel Day Parade', which celebrates the Six Day War----in New York. Truth be told, it is the largest 'Israeli' [sic] parade, dwarfing anything in Israel, and always has been.
Among the blue and white flags and the politicians of every stripe and of course the triumphant smiles of Israeli diplomats, and to the cheers of the tens of thousands of US Jews, the usual July 4 rhetoric and showmanship garnered overwhelming approval of prime minister 'Bibi' Netenyahu's designs for a 'Greater Israel' from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River, a dream of ultra right wing Zionists.
And amidst the fanfare and media coverage nary a word about those in Israel who protested Netenyahu's mad dreams. They called for a return to the 1967 borders as the line which separates Israel from a Palestinian state.
Anyone who challenges the denial of Palestinians a homeland of their own on the West Bank, Gaza, and Arab East Jerusalem is ostrasised, slandered, and if he is a Jew, he is denounced as a self hating Jew and a traitor to his people.
The Zionist enjoy playing the Nazi card to smoother any criticisms of their warfare state. Alas for them, it is becoming increasing more difficult to play this game but in the US where people in and out of office have fallen to Israel's distortion of the truth, and where the Israeli lobby has cast a wide net of influencing US elections.
So, GuamDiary doffs its hats to those Israeli who love their country and go out on the streets calling for a two state solution based on the 1967 borders and an end to 43 years of occupation of the West Bank and Arab East Jerusalem. They represent the true Israel.
