Jewish Professor ''Israel needs to break its territorial addiction''

Even a Jewish American, Dr. Alex Sinclair agreed that the Israeli government hungers territorial occupation of the Palestine land.

As taken frm Dr. Alex Sinclair article from; a Jewish website.

''For the past eight years, we have had an American president who was Israel's "greatest friend" - a friend who stood by grinning feebly while we sank deeper and deeper into a mess. ''

''Israel is like an alcoholic, except we are addicted to territories, not to tequila ''

''Meanwhile, our supposed best friend has stood by, watching us, supporting us, even taking care of us, sometimes gently saying: "You know, you really shouldn't be drinking that," while never actually plucking up the courage - the friendship - to put a hand on our shoulder and say: "You need to stop."

''Israel does not need a friend like that right now. We need a new type of friend - a true friend, one that will lead an intervention for us''


Dr. Alex Sinclair is a lecturer in Jewish education at the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, and an adjunct assistant professor of Jewish education at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
