Recognition

I was struck by the following quotation of Abba Eban, Israel's first Foreign Minister, quoted by Adi Schwartz:

"Nobody does Israel any service by proclaiming its 'right to exist'," wrote Abba Eban in a November 1981 article in The New York Times. "Israel's right to exist, like that of the United States, Saudi Arabia and 152 other states, is axiomatic and unreserved. Israel's legitimacy is not suspended in midair, awaiting acknowledgement by the Saudi royal house. Nor does the Palestine Liberation Organization have the legal status to grant recognition to any country, or to deny it recognition."

The article by the former foreign minister, one of Israel's most impressive spokesmen in the international arena, was written in response to the plan by Saudi Arabia's King Fahd, who proposed an implicit recognition of Israel's right to exist as part of an initiative to end the Israeli-Arab conflict. "There is certainly no other state," wrote Eban, "big or small, young or old, that would consider mere recognition of its 'right to exist' a favor, or a negotiable concession."

Is Yasser Abed Rabbo a Zionist? ZOA bid to oust UPZ from campus group fails

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) bid to oust the Union of Progressive Zionists (UPZ) from the Israel Campus Coalition (ICC) has failed. ZOA had launched the bid in protest against UPZ sponsorship of the Breaking the Silence group tour of U.S. campuses. ZOA later toned down their demands to a request that UPZ sever connections with Breaking the Silence.
