A Deadly Poison

As a companion to yesterday’s piece, here is an example of the kind of thing that the current Israeli administration (and a sizeable xenophobic tranche of the Israeli population) would like to get away with; the kind of thing that leads them and accuse the West of anti-semitism when it quite rightly exposes their hypocrisy.
It’s a subjective account of the situation, of course, but there is enough evidence out there already to prove that stories such as this are, more often than not, reflective of the sad truth for the people who actually have to live there, to live through it. Like the differences between the Catholics and the Protestants in Northern Ireland, foolish notions of pride, power and material wealth (obscured by the wounded shield of religion) have combined in the Middle East to create a deadly poison.
