Amira's writing is usually low grade, but she really outdid herself in this article. Here's how she starts it: "Like an anti-Semitic caricature, Israel has extended its long tentacles". What are you saying Amira? The anti-Semitic attacks against Israel are representative of reality and therefore justifiable? Another quote: “Logic dictates that a government whose policy validates anti-Semitic stereotypes ought to worry Israelis and Jews worldwide.” No, Amira, it’s the JOURNALISTS who validate anti-Semitic stereotypes that ought to worry Israelis and Jews worldwide. Yet another quote: "Blocking the flotilla did not discourage the organizers, who are graduates of the anti-apartheid and anti-white supremacy struggles. Rather, it provided ample proof of how white Israel is." Since when is being white a crime? She attempts to turn the obvious and humiliating defeat of a gang of provocateurs into a victory by reviving age-old anti-Semitic stereotypes. Good job.
