The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
Seems like public sentiment and the high court -- and maybe soon, the law -- resists at all costs the basic premise of a modern democracy: That nations exist by the will of their citizens, all of them, equally vested in a common peoplehood. Your court ruled that the founding of Israel did NOT establish a common peoplehood. In America, that gives us real pause -- it's an astounding ruling, which rested at least in part on a rabbinical interpretation that religion, not place of residence, was the basis of citizenship, as I recall. Your identity cards can't say "Israeli," only "Jew" or "Arab." You don't believe in an Israeli nationality that wouldn't make those distinctions. Ironically, you now have something in common with the Palestinians. As a people, "Israelis" don't exist. No such thing.
