Andrew Sullivan signs up for Samantha Power's wet dream

Remember Samantha Power, the nut case from Harvard who was fired as an Obama adviser after it came to light that she had called for sending American troops to invade Israel establish 'Palestine'? In case you've forgotten, let's go to the videotape.

Power has a new fan. His name is Andrew Sullivan and he writes a blog called the Daily Dish on the Atlantic's web site. Earlier this evening, I blogged an op-ed from Haaretz written by a woman (yes, Andrew, that's a woman's name) named Karni Eldad, who argued that the 'settlement freeze' is a form of racial segregation that would not be tolerated in the United States. Andrew Sullivan blogged the same column (Hat Tip: Memeorandum) and after disparaging Eldad as a tribal fundamentalist (and accusing Prime Minister Netanyahu of using one of George Carlin's seven dirty words on President Obumbler), Sullivan reaches this conclusion:
Any Israeli government beholden to these people will be incapable of making peace on its own. Increasingly, it seems to me, NATO or US troops will have to intervene on the border to enforce a separation and an end to these settlements for good and all.
What border did you have in mind Andrew? The one where the troops happened to be when the 1949 armistice was declared? What are we negotiating (or what were we negotiating) about for the last 16 years? Why should American troops be used to establish a terror state? Why should American troops be used to fight the only democracy in the Middle East instead of the Islamist entities that surround it? What legal rights do the imaginary people called 'Palestinians' have to land to which the last legal claimant before the State of Israel was the British government under a mandate to establish a Jewish state?

When you can answer those questions, maybe you'll stop calling Israeli Jews 'tribal fundamentalists.'

And yes, I believe God promised us this land - read your bible. But that's not our only argument.


Jeffrey Goldberg reads Sullivan as calling for military intervention (Hat Tip: Instapundit).

But it IS the fundamental argument. You know that as an Orthodox Jew but even Ben Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister and not exactly an observant Jew, agreed that the Bible is the source of the Jewish claim to Eretz Israel. And at that, its an absolute one. The land was never promised to any other nation.
