Over at Kabobfest, a predominantly pro-Palestinian blog, Nadeem showed that hip irreverence is not the exclusive domain of Lower East side hipsters. His post commemorating Israel Memorial Day – Yom Hazikaron – contained a 10 second sound clip of the siren thaat commemorates th day. Except it wasn’t a siren, it was fart noises. Ha ha. Well, here’s the response I left on the site, reproduced here for your edification:
Heh… very funny. Except we have a state and you guys have, well, dick all. Our people died but as a result we have a vibrant, functional, albeit not perfect land. But we have a land. Your people died, many at their own hands, and all you have to show for it is a government made up of one part kleptocrats, one part international pariahs. As you foolishly continue your glorious struggle, one sshahid at a time, you perpetuate your people’s misery and poverty and condemn yourselves to continued status as a third rate nation of whiny little bitches whose biggest growth industry is yet more groups of armed thugs. Happy Yom Ha Zikaron. Today I mourn both our fallen people and the Palestinian people whose lives could be so much better and more fulfilling if only their leaders weren’t such complete dolts.
