Sandcastles of Democracy

Sometimes you just cannot put it better.

To wit, on the rise of Israeli-Palestinian non-violent resistance:

The majority of Jewish Israelis are complicit in the perpetuation of the current state of affairs. When growing groups of conscientious people refuse to play the game of building a fictitious democratic sand castle on the shores of the Mediterranean, the Israeli Jew behaves like a spoiled rich brat, who would rather destroy his own castle than see natives share his world and his dreams.

The article goes into greater depth, but the above encapsulates Udi Aloni’s clear message: either the façade of democracy in Israel can continue, or the reality be addressed.

That, and the lamentable rise of the pseudo-lefties: equality and peace across the board, or a rock concert – decide, already.
