Where Did ‘We’ Go?
By Thomas l. Freidman
I hate to write about this, but I have actually been to this play before and it is really disturbing. I was in Israel interviewing Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin just before he was assassinated in 1995. We had a beer in his office. He needed one. I remember the ugly mood in Israel then — a mood
in which extreme right-wing settlers and politicians were doing all they could to delegitimize Rabin, who was committed to trading land for peace as
part of the Oslo accords. They questioned his authority. They accused him of treason. They created pictures depicting him as a Nazi SS officer, and
they shouted death threats at rallies. His political opponents winked at it all.
nion There is has been a toxic atmosphere in US politics for years and it's by design.I remember an thread about the Pentagon wanting to place
a few thousand troops on US soil all they need is a reason real or imagined.All they need to do is convince an extremist on either side of the
so-called "political divide."and they will have their domestic troops.
