Josh Ruebner, National Advocacy Director of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, discusses Caterpillar’s reported cancellation of bulldozer shipments to Israel for the duration of the Rachel Corrie trial, how Israel’s demolition of Palestinian homes works as slow motion ethnic cleansing, keeping up the appearance of a viable Palestinian government so the international community can pretend the conflict isn’t completely one-sided and how Jewish settlements physically cut off East Jerusalem from the West Bank making a shared Jerusalem capital (a major sticking point in a 2 state solution) impossible.

Josh Ruebner is the National Advocacy Director of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, a national coalition of more than 325 organizations working to change U.S. policy towards Israel/Palestine to support human rights, international law, and equality. He also co-founded an organization named Jews for Peace in Palestine and Israel (JPPI), which later merged with Jewish Voice for Peace.

Josh used to work as a Middle East Analyst with Congressional Research Service (CRS), a non-partisan federal government agency which conducts research for Members of Congress. He is an active member of the Arlington Green Party and ran twice as its candidate for Arlington County Board.

  1. Israel–our "51st state"–nevertheless treats its American sugar daddy with supreme contempt. From the "Lavon Affair" in 1954 to U.S.S. LIBERTY in 1967, to colossal espionage and theft of secrets, to murders of Americans, the boys in Tel Aviv know they can piss on America with impunity.

    The Republican slime who are taking over Congress–John Boehner, Eric Cantor et al.–are vile Israel-Firsters. They'll continue the hand-over-the-store-to-Israel routine, while warmongering against Iran.

    Best regards to Josh Ruebner and his organization.

  2. More like the USA is a province of Israel, Orville.

  3. They even go so far as using the MOSSAD to impersonate the FBI within the US with total impunity. Actually, the Fed congratulates them once the news is out!!

  4. Oh yeah, petitions to prezes really work like a charm.

    Better to pressure CAT if you can figure out a way.
