Dealing Death the Israeli Way
Posted on March 4, 2016
River to Sea Uprooted Palestinian
It has been a number of months since Israel passed that law making it legal for soldiers to shoot people for throwing rocks. I had kind of forgotten about that. How many civilized countries have a law like that on the books?
The Israelis seem to have a real knack for “delegitimizing” themselves. The counter-argument to that, though, is that Israelis live in a “rough neighborhood” and face challenges the rest of us don’t have to worry about. But is that really the case? I suppose it all depends on how you look at it.
In the eyes of Joan Alexandra Molinsky, aka Joan Rivers, who floated joyfully out of this life a year and a half ago, the guilty parties in this conflict were clear–it’s those wearing the kaffiyehs rather than the kippahs. And no doubt that’s the prevailing view in Hollywood…
They started it!” Is Ms. Molinsky trying to say it was the Palestinians who stole the homes and land of the Jews back in 1948? That’s funny, I always thought it was the other way around. I guess we’ve had it backwards all these years.
