I've purposely stayed well away from the latest ritual Gaza slaughterfest.
It seems clear that unless Israelis slake their thirst for Palestinian blood from time to time they aren't fulfilled. The periodic death and destruction in the vast prison/ghetto that is Gaza turns the stomach and outrages the conscience of anyone who pays the slightest bit of attention.
Israel lies, thieves and murders with near impunity, hollering constantly about all the "rockets raining down" on their sleeping innocent citizens while hundreds or thousands or however many Arabs it takes are mowed down in the Gaza, regardless of "guilt" or "innocence."
And the United States is the enabler.
Is this what it takes for a nation-state to exist? Lying? Thieving? Murdering? Enabling?
Maybe it's time to re-think the nation-state notion.
It's long past time for Zionism to fade away.
[Meanwhile, Egypt seems to be undergoing a bit of... political strain. Ahem.]
