It is so sad that a reporter of a dignified daily succumbs to tribal flags and outdated ethno-religious sentiments. The Jerusalem day is a backwardish ethnocentric camfire for some "Jews" - not all! It is a disastrous day for those Palestinians who were victimized and stripped of their humanity, many of them deported following 67 and many evicted for the sake of fanatic zealots hitchiking on the IDF's bayonets. Palestinian Jerusalemites were forced to become strangers in their home via Jewish-state violence and indifference of the international community. So what is there to celebrate, is that joy born from crushing and debasing Palestinian humans? Is there something more stupid and primitive and ugly?
