We Con the World is an okay message but…
Caroline Glick has created this satirical video about the violence in Gaza. Caroline was able to get the help of the Israeli government to promote her video. Before the end of the day this video will be seen by millions of Americans. The Israeli government apologized for “accidentally” spreading the video around, and even though it shed an entire people in a negative light nobody will get overly upset. I mean sure there are a couple of people who think that the Irish and Turkish ships carrying humanitarian supplies should have been allowed to squeeze through that blockade.
At any rate nobody in the US will say anything negative about the video since to do so would be antisemitic. Somebody who says something against Israel is considered antisemitic, if you disagree I suggest you Google Helen Thomas, she is a prime example of what happens if you disagree with anything Israel does. For those of you too lazy to Google her name or click on the lmgtfy link, here is a brief explanation of Helen’s mistake.
Helen Thomas has been serving as a reporter to the white house for 57 of her 89 years. Helen Thomas made some less than polite comments at a Jewish Heritage convention. I will admit that her timing could have been better, but the woman was asked a question and she answered. She was asked to comment on the state of Israel, and her response was rough. She said they need to “get the hell out of Israel” when asked to elaborate she explained how in her opinion the Jewish people “occupying” Israel should go home to Poland, Germany, America, wherever they are from. She apologized later on her website saying
“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”
This apology was nowhere near enough. She was asked to resign, and the president of the United States when referring to Helen used words like “shame” and “out of line”, saying that it was unfortunate her career needed to end on such a sour note. The moral of this story is that if you watch this video, don’t dare speak out against it. To do so would be political death.
