Israel/Palestine

I'm reluctant to blog on the Israel/Palestine thing as the topic brings every spittle flecked loon on the planet out to play, but today is the 60th anniversary of the massacre of the Palestinian villagers of Deir Yassin, which ought not to pass unremarked. There is a fair amount of harrowing stuff on YouTube about the massacre but I decided on balance not to put up any of it here.

Instead here is a clip from a Matrix type film - I don't even know what the film is or who made it but it's an entertaining piece of defiance.

That was truly odd.

I dug the hand grenade juggling act, though.

M - I wonder if Begin is the only war criminal to win the Nobel Peace Prize? Well - there was Kissinger. Tom Lehrer said that satire died when Kissinger won the Nobel Peace Prize. And apparently they nearly gave it to Mussolini in the 1930s.

ps - at least they forgot to give it to Milosevic...

and Pol Pot and George W the list goes on and on. But maybe they will get around to that in time. Just sit back, sip an OP and wait..

When I post about the Middle East, it gets nuts to say the least. The common binder is nationalism.
