    Your claims to the land are meaningless to us non-Jews (who necessarily came before Judaism). We have no jealousy toward you, you are simply a burden to us, taking our money and abusing people with our government's corrupt complicity. We are not the "Chosen ones" for the sole reason that we choose not to worship ourselves as you choose to do (that's really all that phrase amounts to, no matter what form you present it in, and it's both silly and pathetic). We should boycott you, not the Arabs, because at least we get the better end of the deal in our relationship with them, whereas you just shaft us and ask for another check every time. You're just a cheap religious mafia without a fraction of the fashion sense and not the slightest hint of the culinary talent of the Italians. And by the way, if we really were such jerks as to endorse the kind of ethnocratic, theocratic state you feel we should support for you, why wouldn't we do it for ourselves as well, kicking you all out of the U.S. like you kick the Palestinians out of their homes on a daily basis? There's no reason for us to offer you what we deny ourselves out of common decency and respect for our fellow human beings, whose shared humanity with us we should all value as much as our own, but which you deny others out of sheer bigotry and religious extremism. If we're going to abuse the Palestinians by favoring you, why wouldn't we abuse you in order to favor ourselves? You're asking us to help you hurt people, well if we're going to do that, why wouldn't we hurt you as well? Now, do you like being mouthed off to as much as you like mouthing off, Don?

Operation octogenarian

In 1969, veterans of the Haganah, Irgun and WWII were asked to help defend the northern communities. The media described a giant success, but archives show they were mostly asked to help with the harvest.
