Sometimes, certain things are better highlighted through little analogies that personalise them, bring them closer to you, put them into a perspective that you can understand and, therefore, cannot be quite so easily shrugged off and accepted as normal. Now, just suppose in Northern Ireland we had a situation where some protestants were building a settlement in a catholic area and one of those protestants was filmed shooting two catholics from close range and just suppose that the charges against that protestant were dropped because of some technicality or lack of evidence the day after four catholics had been indicted for another incident where they had lynched another mad protestant after he had shot four catholics dead on a Belfast bus.
Well, last week in that wonderful contradiction in terms, the “Jewish Democracy” of Zionistan, a certain Ze’ev Braude, 51, turned himself into the police after cameras filmed him shooting two Palestinians and two days ago there he was a free man after the prosecution dropped charges.; with the evidence suggesting that there was no particular reason for them to drop charges. Apparently, the “good” Ze’ev claimed self defence, a claim that anywhere but Israel would look a bit flimsy when the person claiming it was going into someone else’s house waving a gun and just happened to shoot a couple of the people living there.(1) If it weren’t so tragic, we would have to be tempted to see it an absurd joke. However, with Israel`s prosecutors the previous day saying that the “rule of law” required them to indict twelve Arabs who killed a Jewish “terrorist” (my own words; Israel does not recognise that there is such a thing as a Jewish terrorist) after he had unloaded his IDF-supplied, U.S. donated M-16 on a busload of Arabs, killing four,(2) we would do well not to laugh, for this is no laughing matter and it is not an isolated incident of “justice” in the so-called “Jewish Democracy”. Moreover, while this type of thing might be par for the course in some third world dictatorship, none of those dictatorships masquerade as a western democracy as our “friends” in Zionistan do. That is important, because if we actually fall for that crap, we might ourselves wake up one day and find ourselves in a little kafkaesque world not too disimilar to the one in which the disposessed and disenfranchised people of Palestine find themselves in.
