Why are the apologists for Israel so worked up?
I never knew that "it was strictly forbidden to have a notebook in Belsen," or that Daniel Finkelstein, a Murdoch scab and mate of Gimlet Kamm, has an Auntie Ruth who broke that rule when she was there. I certainly didn't know that Auntie Ruth knew Anne Frank and that the two met up in that hellhole. Funnily enough I had an Uncle Frank who was part of the army that liberated Belsen, so there you go - it's a small world, isn't it?
Finkelstein wrote about the atrocities that befell Europe's Jews because he wanted to use them as a justification for the existence of the creole state that is Israel. The problem with this argument is that it involves accepting that the Arabs of Palestine have to pay for Germany's crimes.
The simple truth is that Israel is the bastard creation of the west. It's establishment involved the killing and ethnic cleansing of countless thousands of Palestinian Arabs, a people whose only crime was to be living on the land of their fathers when a gang of European gangsters arrived.
However, the continued existence of this nasty little shithole depends upon western goodwill in the form of aid and soft loans. Therefore, says your cynical old Exile, it is highly likely that the reason why we are being treated to such Finkelsteinian quantities of old wank is that the squat faced little fuckers who write this shit realise that the political tide has turned and that demands will continue to grow for the financial plug to be pulled on this particular shithole once and for all.
Anybody want to bet that I am wrong?
