Desecration





Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, along with Hillary Clinton, spoke at the Brookings Institution's Saban Center for Middle East Policy's seventh annual forum in Washington, December 10, 2010. - Photo by Reuters.




You might think that if the organizers had a need for a backdrop to the speakers at a think tank forum for the Israeli/Palestinian peace process it would also include the Palestinian flag. Of course that might send the wrong signal implying that the talks would be fair and equitable and we know that will never be the case.

Since the Vietnam war the burning of the 'sacred' symbol of America, the flag, has been viewed by many as traitorous and a desecration. In my opinion the above image is a much worse desecration but there will not be a debate in the main stream media on this inappropriate use of our flag.

We may as well go ahead and incorporate the USraeli flag as our new national symbol. At least we could say that it was the most honest thing our government has done in a long long time.

  1. The racist Israeli rabbi Ovadia Yosef recently compared Gentiles to "donkeys."

    It is an insult, of course, but in a sense he is right. American taxpayers have become donkeys for Israel. As Yosef puts it, "They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat." Now think about how this dovetails neatly with other things going on, the gutting of social security for instance. When horses and donkeys are too old to work any more, they don't normally draw pensions. Usually they are either euthanized humanely or packed off to the rendering plant to be turned into dog food. It's kind of the same situation here. The donkey/taxpayer works hard and in return he gets food and shelter. The only difference in this case is each April 15 he pays his taxes to Israel. Then when he's no longer able to work any more...well, how much money and effort are you going to expend on a donkey who has become so wobbly on his legs he can barely stand up any more?

  2. Interesting addendum to the above comment: Rabbi Yosef apparently has such a wide following in Israel he has become a poster child for Carlsberg beer.

  4. Yeah, in addition to bringing the US "Power Rangers" and other similar trash tv shows for kids billionaire zionist media goon Haim Saban uses his money and influence to help mother Israel stay insulated from any real accountability. He would never allow a Palestinian flag or any semblance of fairness at any event of his.

  5. Hey Kenny,

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice. What's transparently obvious with that backdrop is which flag is over which. Clearly the Israeli flag is over the US flag. This is unambiguous. Sure, one could argue that it has no meaning but you'd also have to argue that flags have no meaning. And clearly they do. And clearly this does too. And whoever did it knows it. This is a deliberate public 'fuck you' to the US.

    And that's Israel for you: a country that will always bite the hand that feeds it.
