Operation Ruthless Calculation?
In the past five years Israel has mounted three major assaults on Gaza. Together, Operation Cast Lead, Operation Pillar of Defense, and Operation Protective Edge have resulted in the deaths of 3,700 Palestinians. 90 Israelis died.
These vastly disproportionate assaults have often seemed crazed. After the 2008-9 attack, Israel’s then-foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, boasted, “Israel demonstrated real hooliganism during the course of the recent operation, which I demanded.”
But, as Norman G. Finkelstein reveals in his eye-opening new book, Method and Madness, behind Israel’s apparent madness there is ruthless calculation …
“As a work of scholarship and commentary, Method and Madness is simply outstanding.”
