Israel if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough

Interestingly just as, “thousands of Israelis celebrated Israel’s 64th Independence Day with family picnics and hikes,” the Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar announced that “gave 1,200 people and the people of Israel a holiday gift – the recognition of Bruchin, Sansana, and Rechalim.” Bruchin, Sansana and Rechalim are the latest three illegal settlements in the illegally occupied West Bank that Israel has “legalised”.

Of course, with the thousands of Israelis celebrating in parks that are invariably built on ethnically cleansed villages, the link provided by these two “separate” pieces of news is all too obvious. One can only wonder how brainwashed and morally bankrupt people must be to not at least understand this.

Fortunately, the absurdity where illegal becomes “legal”, where an ethnocracy becomes a “democracy” and where the victims of aggression are told that they “threaten out of a hunger for conquest“, while the perpetrators of an ethnic cleansing and a brutal occupation contend that they  “defend out of an aspiration for peace”, is all to obvious to those of us who are neither brainwashed, nor morally bankrupt.

That is why, we might reasonably doubt Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin’s contention that “we’ve seen a glimpse of a bright Israeli future”, even if “our” “Absurdis” back in Zionistan might actually believe Joseph E. Levine’s (now deceased film producer) hypothesis that You can fool all the people all the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough.” The reality with this one, however, is it’s a bit like trying to sell “smoking 100 cigarettes a day is good for your health makes”, or, indeed, “war is peace” ….. anyway, enjoy your “independence day”.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
