Why should those in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle also oppose NATO?
Cooperation between Israel and NATO continue to deepen. And there’s pressure within NATO to take this further.
Turkey still blocks Israel from actually attending NATO summits – because of the refusal to apologise for their 2010 massacre on the Turkish Gaza flotilla boat – but you can be sure Israel’s friends will be vocal on its behalf.
A few examples:
NATO head on cooperation with Israel (Jan 2014)
Shimon Peres visits NATO to share “knowledge and technological abilities” (Mar 2013)
"Israel, already a de-facto member of the alliance, maintains close ties with several member states" (Haaretz, Aug 2012)
Other reasons to stand against NATO

Do you know what I think of when someone asks for solidarity? I think of cops. Nobody shows more solidarity than cops. You could have a cop on video beating the crap out of someone, with a dozen of his fellow cops standing there watching, and not a one will cross that blue line to do what is right…

Solidarity is about group cohesion, which means you have to see value in group belonging. And I don’t. I’ve never wanted to belong to a group. All too often, group belonging means conformity. It’s why the Amish all dress the same. It’s why every kid in middle school has to run out and buy the same pair of jeans as their friends…

If you want me to do something or support something, do not appeal to me on the basis of group identity. Appeal to me on principle. Appeal to a real human relationship that we have. If I think your cause is just, I’ll be there…

If you just want solidarity, join the mob or the white nationalists or the police force.

“This is the first use of a 3D-printed vertebra as an implant for orthopedic spine surgery in the world,” said Dr. Liu Zhongjun, director of the Orthopedics Department at the hospital, as quoted by the CBS News.
The boy, referred to as Minghao, was diagnosed with cancer following a football accident. The tumor was located on the second vertebra in his neck. He is reported to be in good condition following a five-hour surgery and is expected to recover quickly.
