The United Nation’s human-rights farce: When Israel-bashing becomes one of the fine arts

Decidedly, the situation is worse than I thought at first. Not only is anti-semitism rampant but it has become kind of a high-class intellectual game. At the United Nations, several countries, many among them being Muslim ones at no suprise, are indulging in an incessant Israel-bashing that is just a front for a clear and non-equivocal racism. Because folks, don’t be fooled: Israel-bashing is the new form of anti-semitism. You won’t see the old version of it anymore or very rarely, the one that we saw in the Middle Ages or during WWII. No. It has evolved like everything else evolves, and now it veils itself behind the scarf of « criticism » of Israel. The people who criticize Israel are not anti-semites, no. But they just can’t stand those f——– goddamned Israelis… In effect, you have to realize that since the end of WWII, everybody has become better at propaganda. Before 1945, totalitarian ideologies didn’t hide. They expressed themselves clear and sound in the open with their manifestations. One could even say that they were gross and without nuances. Just think at the Nazis and their processions with the flag and the torch, and at Staline with the columns of soldiers before his oversized portrait as big as a building. Propaganda is much more subtle now than it used to be, that’s why it is so difficult to analyze anything that is going on these days. Continuer la lecture
