It’s the occupation, stupid / some thoughts on the Intifada’s 22ed anniversary

Hebron 1990
"The occupation, not anti-Semitism, is the reason for the anti-Israeli sentiment around the world. The occupation, and the Jewish automatic identification with Israel, makes it harder to fight anti-Semitism. It shouldn’t be this way, but it is. The occupation makes Israel more and more isolated politically, and quiet rightly so. No reasonable person and no nation should accept what we are doing. The world gave Israel four decades to solve this issue, but enough is enough. Personally, I would never support physical attacks on Israelis, but all other moves, from demonstrations to boycotts, are fair game.

It’s the occupation, stupid."

  1. as rotten as the PA is, I think it's still better than having them in your face roaming around all the time.  at least that's why i never really liked going to east jerusalem.
