The headlines this week reeked of déjà vu, reminiscent of previous confrontations and intifadas, as conditions on the ground in Gaza are becoming more and more similar to those that preceded the 2014 war.19:05 05.02.16 | 4 comments
In your anger you revealed that you indeed see us Jews as a distinct people, despite your protestations. But just for the record, I'm obsessed with facts, not DNA per se. You might want to build an interest in facts; they make your arguments much sounder, especially when you don't invent them on the spot. Take your ridiculous discussion of Ashkenazim and Mizrahim. You are clueless as to all the similarities, not to mention the profound sense of nationhood. And you have a double standard, because you would never debate the nationhood of the Palestinians despite all the differences that their diaspora has already caused. The rule is: when a nation suffers dispossession, there is no justification for denying that nation's existence. But that's what you do to the Jews; you punish us for having been dispossessed by cruel oppressors and occupiers.
