In our little war on terror, the United States engendered some of the worst torture ever seen by a first world country in decades. The idea was: if you leave marks, then you are torturing. But there’s dozens of ways to torture without obvious physical harm.
We tore up the rulebook and devised our own insane tactics, some of which I don’t want to think about because it depresses me.
Guess who else likes to torture?
Israel. The have a way of torturing Palestinians in “a chair” by binding their arms to their ankles. Your airways are restricted and you can piss all over yourself if the torturer really wants to make a point.
Our interrogators learned that horrid shit from the Jews.
This era is still full of barbarism. That much is obvious. But modern nations should know better.
Let me be clear: I am not a fan of Israel.
To establish it required the forcible removal of its native inhabitants when it was called Palestine. They’re going to go out like our Indians did; moved, moved again until there is barely any place to move to. Israelis acted like terrorists to wrest the land from its colonial occupiers, displaced nearly a million frightened Palestinians in the war that followed Jewish independence, nullified their right to return home, and turned a blind eye to bloody massacres of Muslims.
I suggest that if this was happening to you, you’d fight back. Nastily, heedlessly, you’d do anything to remove an occupier from our soil. You’d bust out your little pea shooters and get them to leave. I excuse Palestine for wanting this irritant of a country out of its collective hair. There’s more going on here than meets the eye: it isn’t just removal that is so ugly. It is, as is going to be the case more and more often as blowjob climate change does its own removal, about resources. The Israelis are short on freshwater, and Palestine is getting in the way of its use of it.
I used to think to myself, “Well, the average Israeli wants peace with the Palestinians, it’s just that their government sucks.” A new poll suggests otherwise. My blind spot was not realizing that the reason why their government is so ruthlessly anti-Palestinian is that regular Israelis voted them in.
Folks, the two-state solution is way far in the rearview. There’s no way it was ever going to work anyway because Palestine does not have contiguous land. Further and further, the Arabs will get shoved into the ghettos of Gaza, with the Jews not remembering a thing about why they wound up in Palestine in the first place.
