We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
God bless israel , could you imagine being surrounded by millions of those brain dead muslims. maybe its time for something a little bigger then just boarding a flotilla, im thinking something along the lines of a very big bang followed by a mushroom cloud, it really would be a great service to humanity and besides the herd needs thinning.
I think what you characterize as ignorance is actually cognitive dissonance. The Palestinian youth caught himself just short of blaming the post-WWII spike in Zionism that led to the formation of the modern State of Israel on Jews fleeing from the Holocaust - an event that the "official" Hamas and Iranian historical narratives either minimize or deny altogether.
He thus trapped himself into having to explain one event which he is damning by another which he is denying.
