Apologies for the long hiatus, dear reader. I confess I have been severely bummed about the manner in which we 99ers have been completely abandoned by our nation, while the richest 2% of the populace have been gifted with a tax cut which will add $700 Billion dollars to the deficit over the next two years. The extent to which the Obama administration has sold us down the river to the corporate interests is beyond depressing, it is an act of high treason. Barak Hussein Obama has betrayed his oath of office; he is a traitor to the Constitution.
But that is not my chosen subject for the day.
As I have said here before, I am neither Christian, Jew, nor Muslim. I am a Pagan, and I make no bones about it. I feel the need to repeat this, given that my focus, for three scribbles in a row now, has been on Christianity.
The video below has finally been released by YouTube, after being banned for three weeks. Check it out for yourself. I admit I shed a tear, probably because the song "Little Drummer Boy" trips some deep-set emotional triggers from when I was very small.
Nonetheless, the argument is a valid one. US Christians support Israel in overwhelming numbers, in spite of the fact that the actions of the Israeli government are a gross violation of the principles in which Christians profess to believe. US Christians support Israel in overwhelming numbers, in spite of the fact that Christian Palestinians are murdered, oppressed and dispossessed in the same way that Muslim Palestinians are.
Those few brave Americans like Helen Thomas who dare to speak the ugly truth are excoriated, publicly vilified, and exiled from polite society.
When will we wake up? When will we throw off the chains of propaganda, ignorance, and misplaced Holocaust guilt? When will America finally open its eyes and see the current Israeli government for the murdering, racist, Zio-fascist thugs that they really are?
