I think you need re-educating. Your uncritical acceptance of the Palestinian narrative does no-one any good. Not to mention that it’s dually racist, first to paint the “Zionists”, as all black, and then to patronise Arabs by denying them all agency in this conflict.
If you had watched the BBC documentary on Israel that I recommended, and Anna Corben has never been a friend of Israel, you would have seen the assemblage of thugs on board, part of a Turkish power play. And the telling moment, at the end, when Anna Corben examined the so-called “aid”. Packages of medicine way past their “use by” date, and therefore worthless.
Your attempt to delegitimise the State of Israel as a colonialist state is pretty rich coming from an Anglo on Aboriginal land. There more I see of the handful of whiteys generating all the anti-“Zionist” heat, the more I’m convinced that they are projecting their own guilt. It would be a very different story if the Aboriginals were massed in Mt Cootha, bombarding thethe Curr Estates. But then the Euro-christians were much better at wiping out indigenous peoples, so have no fear, you need lose no sleep about this eventuality. And you can wake refreshed for another heroic march on Westfields on Saturday. How sad that the Long March has now become the short stroll through the mall followed by a nice lunch.
Sad to see the once mighty intellectual, principled Left reduced to a bunch of black-and-white thinkers. Pity because you promote otherwise good stuff.
