A Familiar Tale

The excellent Bloghead brings us the story of an Israeli applying for a job, and receiving the following rejection letter:

Thank you for your CV, but in you’re not we’re looking for. The ideal person for us will be first an foremost an illustrator, as our advertisement specified – working with a pen and brush – with an interest in modelmaking, whereas your own forte is interior design and CAD…


Speaking personally however may I suggest that for European consumption you would be wise to omit details of your national service, which you describe with such evident and ingenuous pride?

 

The natural reaction of most educated Europeans to the information you provide is likely to be “so it was she who guided those guinships to targetted assasinations and the murder of women and children with indiscriminate bombing and strafing of refugee camps (refugee camps!!!! 50 years after your compatriots drove them from their homes – and you have done nothing for them ever since.)!”. Most educated Europeans – and as a matter of fact a large proprtion of educated Americans too – now view ‘Israel’ as a brutal undemocratic (where are the votes for the indigenous inhabitants whom you have helotised?) colonial state, run by criminals who defy all international law and natural justice. And a sizeable proportion doubts the ‘right’ of Israel to exist.


This has nothing to do with anti-semitism. nor is it racism – that is the kind of disgusting attitude which one might say is inherent in the idea of the state of Israel, and one might say among a large section of believing Jews elsewhere, who regard the rest of us as inferior and unclean – and not chosen by God. What could be more racist than that? And what happens to those of your race who dare to speak out against the wickedness that your fanatacsim inevitably leads to? they are murdered or have acid thrown in their faces like Yael Dayan

 

just to put you in the picture

 

Miriam also has a follow-up to the story, including Croke’s lame excuse.

 

If this all sounds familar to you, it is because it has happened before, with Oxford Professor Wilkie, with whom I had an email exchange last year. You can follow the story here, here, and here.
