***Notes*** This file replaces the Afghanistan packet neg with the exception of the Karzai disad, which is probably currently unrunnable but could be updated in a future wave, and the civilian casualities CP. You can run any of the grabbag cp planks together, depending what advantages they read. You could also combine it with the Afghanistan aid cp from the FMW lab’s shared neg if you would like…. .and/or with the civilian casualities cp if you really wanted, though its not my highest recommendation. Politics, Elections, CMR, and the case turns all can be net benefits to these CPs. The defense and offense on the case is pretty solid in my opinion, so defending the status quo isn’t the worst option I’ve ever heard. 2

RRS Afghan Shared Neg ***A2: Antiamericanism/terrorism*** Alt Cause – Palestine outweighs Global Post, 6/4/10 (lexis) Israel feels it needs to maintain a reputation for frightfulness in the Middle East to cow Arabs . As New York Times columnist Tom Friedman once wrote, Israel keeps two sets of books ” one for the West, in which Israel is to be seen as a liberal democracy in the European tradition, the other for the Arabs in which Israel is brutal, taking two eyes and an ear for any one eye. Since Lebanon ended up looking like a win for Hezbollah, Israel worried about its prestige and used rough tactics in Gaza to restore the terror it hoped to instill. In Turkey, however, this backfired and the Turks began to slip away from the Israeli alliance. Now that America is fighting two wars against Muslim countries, the U.S. military recognizes that although they may be fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the power of the Palestinian problem, and Israels continued occupation, is what a British Foreign Minister called extremisms greatest recruiting sergeant ." Already one can see Israels supporters in this country beginning to attack Turkey, whereas in the past the Israel lobby has been helpful to Turkey. That may change now that Turkey is denouncing Israel. Some American foreign policy gurus have written that with our main problem in Afghanistan and Pakistan, maybe the Palestinian problem isnt really so important . It is a short-sighted conception, for sooner or later the plight of the Palestinians comes back to kick us in the pants. Some Israelis, too, are saying that with their economy doing well and no recent suicide bombers, maybe the status quo is acceptable and maybe peace with the Palestinians isnt necessary. That will all come tumbling down with the next Palestinian uprising which is as sure to come as night follows day, unless the curse of occupation can be lifted from Israel and the Palestinians alike. 3
