Israel digs its own grave
Israel might as well give up. As this reader from CIF points out - in the court of public opinion, Israel is finished.
In outrage at Israel's recent callous and illegal behaviour I have walked London's streets with a t-shirt emblazoned "Israel = terror state" on the front and "boycott Israel" on the back.Almost forty years ago, the world stood by as Israelis forced 1000 Egyptian POWs to dig their own graves in the Sinai desert and to jump into them before they machine-gunned them down.
I thought I might meet the usual idiotic cries of 'anti-semite', but instead have been flabbergasted at the endless cheers and cries of support from passersby, cars, cyclists etc.
The fact is that the legitimacy of Israel in the UK is in tatters. Commentators on the radio only have to use the word "disproportionate" and the studio audience clap strenuously.
Today, Israel has utterly destroyed its hitherto untouchable image before the world to such a degree that nothing it can do will save it. All that remains for Israel to do is start digging.
The question is - how fast will they dig and how many of US will they bury with them?
