Veteran Israeli Diplomat Resigns over “Wrong” Foreign Policy

Bravo, Baruch!

Ilan Baruch, a 36-year veteran of the Israeli diplomatic corps, has quit his job over his country’s internationally condemned policies toward the Palestinians, Israel’s Ynet News reports. Baruch, who was just a few years short of retirement, was last posted as Israel’s ambassador to South Africa.

“Israel’s foreign policy is wrong,” Baruch declared, pointing to the criminal occupation of Palestine. He says if the Jewish state continues with its current disastrous policies toward the Palestinian people, it will become a de-legitimized pariah state. Baruch told Israel TV that his country’s standing was in danger because of its “difficult to explain” policies.

“I can no longer honestly represent this government,” said Baruch, who lost an eye serving during the 1967-1970 War of Attrition against Egypt. “As (Foreign Minister) Lieberman was elected by a large public in a legitimate manner, I cannot question him – but I don’t have to serve him, and therefore I’m quitting.”

Baruch also wisely noted the tried-and-true Zionist tactic of tarring any criticism of Israel with the brush of anti-Semitism. “Identifying the objection expressed by global public opinion to the occupation policy as anti-Semitic is simplistic, provincial and artificial,” he wrote. “Experience shows that this global trend won’t change until we normalize our relations with the Palestinians.”

      Anti-Semitic? I think not. I am from a Jewish family. Anti-American? Hardly. If you go to the doctor and she tells you you’re sick, do you attack the doctor as anti-you, or do you do what she prescribes so you get better? Pro-commie? Perhaps; at least pro-socialist. And may I ask what’s wrong with that?
