Happy 5th anniversary illegal Israel wall ruling
'Law must thwart' Israeli barrier
If Israel wants anyone to actually believe that that wall is temporary, not intended to impede the peace process, and for security vs land grabs, they'd be BUILDING IT ON THEIR OWN LAND! I mean really, how dumb do they think we are?
It's not really a question of intelligence or ignorance, though. It's that Americans generally don't care. Things like celebrity babies and deaths, socialite antics, and Lorena Bobbitts of the world are much more likely to grab our attention than injustice and starvation around the world that our tax dollars are funding. And then there's the problem of being accused of being anti-Semitic for questioning Israel's policy or actions or daring to investigate the Palestinian perspective... No one wants to be called names, so we don't even go there.
