High-ranking Central Command officer sees attacks lasting for months, doesn't rule out further escalation; Ya'alon: Israel will expand West Bank fence.01:56 26.11.15 | 1 comments
Your intertwining of the Palestinian issues and Israel's economic challenges as they relate to "morality" and your assessment of what "left" means, are confusing at best, and manipulative at worst. Palestinian issues aside, have a look at your trends economically and class struggle posturing, and compare to curves in democratic countries somewhat older than Israel (ie Canada). Here our governments, education system and major industry is paralyzed and hostage to unions and political correctness that not only guarantee mediocrity, they punish attempts to distinguish achievement from slothery, and ironically prevent progress for everyone. If you believe there is higher morality among humans that ultimately organize to "protect the 99%", (aka left) you are naive, and should be careful what you wish for. I used to consider myself left until I got into the real work world and found out what was really going on. Yair Lapid said it best this week - "I used to have so many opinions before I learned the facts.” Calling "left" "moral", carte blanche, is ludicrous, and a whitewashed generalization that is hilarious in its irony. If the left would get over their self-righteousness and make helping out a bigger priority than celebrating "being" left, I would start identifying myself that way again. In the meantime it's just embarrassing to see what became of a category that used to be humane as opposed to rabid.
