There is equality in Israel!

Yells the Israeli settler, who then drives on segregated roads, filled with segregated buses, to drop their children off at segregated schools.

Arabs live here better than anywhere else!

Screeches the Israeli liberal, conveniently ignoring that over half the Palestinian population within Israel lives under the poverty line.

We teach love!

Chants the liberal Zionist, about a country where a Jew can’t marry a non-Jew legally.

Our enemies teach hate!

Declares the “moderate” Israeli, in a country where the Nakba is purposely eliminated from the curriculum.

We made the desert bloom!

Boasts the J-Streeter, overlooking the fact that Jewish Israelis make double the average income of non-Jewish Israelis. Overlooking the fact that 1 in 5 Israelis live in poverty. Overlooking the fact that it never was an empty desert to begin with.

Overlooking, overlooking, overlooking.

Ignoring, ignoring, ignoring.

Sometimes I wonder if Israelis realize this all, and just like to pretend. Or are they truly oblivious to all this?

I’m honestly not sure which is worse.

Now let’s look at both sides:

There is equality in Israel!

Yells the Israeli settler, who then drives on segregated roads, filled with segregated buses, to drop their children off at segregated schools.

The Israelis are committing a genocide in Gaza!

Yells the protestor, ignoring the fact that if Israel truly wanted to ethnically cleanse the Gaza Strip they could just carpet bomb it. 

Arabs live here better than anywhere else!

Screeches the Israeli liberal, conveniently ignoring that over half the Palestinian population within Israel lives under the poverty line.

Israel has placed Gaza under a blockade!

A man in Gaza City complains, ignoring the fact that Egypt has sealed the southern border and that the blockade didn’t start until Hamas took control of Gaza. 

We teach love!

Chants the liberal Zionist, about a country where a Jew can’t marry a non-Jew legally.

Hamas is just fighting back against the occupation!

The Hamas-supporter cries, ignoring the fact that Hamas fires indiscriminately upon civilians and kills those who disagree with its doctrines. 

Our enemies teach hate!

Declares the “moderate” Israeli, in a country where the Nakba is purposely eliminated from the curriculum.

How can the world ignore so many deaths in Gaza?

Complains the Arab, whilst giving the media a free pass for ignoring the 1,700 deaths in Syria last week. 

We made the desert bloom!

Boasts the J-Streeter, overlooking the fact that Jewish Israelis make double the average income of non-Jewish Israelis. Overlooking the fact that 1 in 5 Israelis live in poverty. Overlooking the fact that it never was an empty desert to begin with.

WHY ARE THEY ATTACKING US?

Wonder both sides, ignoring and overlooking the historical context and the poor political choices that have lead to such violence. 

———-

Overlooking, overlooking, overlooking.

Ignoring, ignoring, ignoring.

Sometimes I wonder if Israelis and Palestinians realize this all, and just like to pretend. Or are they truly oblivious to all this?

I’m honestly not sure which is worse.

Both sides are so full of shit.

It is very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health-care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception.

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and likely 2016 presidential candidate warns of a “slippery slope.” (via holygoddamnshitballs)

Someone sent me an album of modern pop songs re-imagined as Motown songs.  It is really good.  Check it out.

Baruch Dayan Ha’emet. For these three boys, for the innocent Palestinians killed during the hunt for them, and for any more victims to come. 
For the thousands that have died in these decades of conflict. Let it end.
