Is it any wonder than we resonate so with Israel? The Israelis are following the same methodology we used to cement our relations with the indigenous people who occupied land that was rightfully ours: make treaties and then break them, slaughter them, starve them, destroy their crops, isolate them on reservations and reduce them to a state of total dependency.
We had Manifest Destiny; Israel has Zionism. We had Broken Knee; Israel has Gaza.
My goodness, George, this could be the Whiteman’s last hurrah. As we sink into economic ruination, it is imperative that we go out in a blaze of glory, and Israel is providing that final blaze as her brave troops and courageous tanks swarm into Gaza.
The object of both our Indian wars and Israel’s Gazian war are the same—the peace that can only be found in a graveyard.
I was pleased to see that the United States struck another blow for this peace by vetoing several UN Security Resolutions calling for a cease fire. U.S. deputy ambassador Alejandro Wolff explained our veto by saying, “The important point to focus on here is establishing the understanding of what type of cease-fire we’re talking about and to ensure that it’s lasting, and to ensure that we don’t return to a situation that led to the current situation,” because the current situation is not a product of the past situation, so we need a situation that harkens back to a prior situation that will not yield the current situation even though the current situation has no antecedental situation upon which the current situation is based.
Have you ever read a more stirring ode to peace?
