America's entanglement with Israel

Thomas Friedman and the Special Relationship

leave a comment »

In an interview with Jadaliyya, Belén Fernández talks about her new book, The Imperial Messenger: Thomas Friedman at Work:

The third section is called “The Special Relationship” and deals with Friedman’s pro-Zionist agenda, which is aided considerably by his ability to market himself as a serious critic of Israel. His qualifications as critic are limited to intermittent denunciation of Israeli settlements — criticism which is itself only levied in order to ensure the survival of the ethnocracy and to deter Palestinians from pursuing a one-state democracy with equal rights for all citizens.
