You Want To Talk About Israel Palestine?


Warning: some mildly salty language with sexual references.

It’s funny, but it’s also sad: it’s sad because it shows how, even in America, the idea that Jews were just inserted into Israel because of guilt after the Holocaust is so strong. Remember, Obama repeated this in his very first speech to the Muslim world after being elected.

Nothing about the centuries of continuous Jewish presence here, nothing about the yearning to return to our land, nothing about the century of Zionism that predated the Holocaust. Oh well, I guess we have to understand this represents just about the most positive, main stream US view of Israel we can expect.

I can only say I’m sure a European one would be unimaginably worse. What do you think?
