    "'The real challenge,' said Phyllis Bennis, a fellow at the liberal Institute for Policy Studies who studies social movements, is making the revolt against the accumulation of wealth 'happen politically.' The 3-week-old Occupy movement must spotlight the outrage of folks such as Schwetz to build a movement big enough to succeed in making tax-the-rich proposals become law, analysts say...Critics of the fledgling movement dismiss it as the rambling of the usual protesters — a cacophony of liberal causes broadcasting a scattershot message. It's much of the same language that was used to dismiss the antiwar movement a decade ago when the United States invaded Afghanistan, Bennis said."

    Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, said the discussion could drain attention from other worthy UN issues.

    "In this case on the question of Palestine, the UN has been engaged since before the state of Israel was created in 1948, but the actual engagement has been prevented by U.S. control of the so-called peace process," said Bennis, author of "Understanding the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Primer."

    "Right now, for the first time since it began in 1991 the Palestinian leadership has broken with the single-minded focus on the U.S.-backed peace process because it hasn't led anywhere."
