The abandonment of the two-state formula and the refusal to condemn racist incitement from the Prime Minister of Israel isn’t some kind of earthquake. It’s been a slow tectonic shift happening over the years as the far-right funder class has overtaken American Jewish institutions and shifted them from communal representative bodies into billionaires’ bully pulpits. In addition to spending millions annually lobbying the federal government, the same right-wing Jewish elite established countless Israel advocacy organizations to propagandize on behalf of Israel’s right-wing within the Jewish community itself and to marginalize Jewish critics of the Israeli occupation. This has happened against the backdrop of a decade-and-a-half-long War on Terror and widespread Islamophobic hysteria that seems to have inextricably linked the cause of Zionism to the politics of the conservative right, thereby shifting Zionist discourse towards increasingly extreme ends.
