It remains to be seen, based on our political response, how far this obscenity of forcing us to swear allegiance to Israel will go. But legal compulsion or not, every Democratic presidential candidate must swear that allegiance & demonstrate it by pilgrimage to Israel—& all of them have. Some may think that’s political chump change if they talk a good line on US domestic politics. Those are the ones who don’t understand the impact of genocide & specifically Israel’s colonial & apartheid policies on the corruption of US politics & politicians. That’s where expedience & abandonment of principles are taught & where promoting genocide becomes a rite of passage for Democratic politicians.
