I found this on the Facebook page of a friend of mine. He happens to be Jewish.

Israeli talk show host Assaf Harel has caused an international stir with his commentary on the way his country treats the people of Gaza.

On the satirical show Laila Tov (it means “Good Night”), he said- well, hear it for yourself:

This rant against Israeli society is going viral

This Israeli talk show host's scathing rant against Israeli society is going viral beyond the Middle East.

Posted by QZ on Wednesday, 1 March 2017

“Humaneness? What does that have to do with us?”

“Are you kidding? Apartheid has been here for ages.”

“We’ve been abusing the Palestinians on a daily basis for years, denying them their basic rights.”

“In the West Bank, we’re taking their properties from them.”

“For years we’ve been deepening the hatred – the same hatred that we later complain about in peace talks.”

“Just don’t tell us what’s really happening.”

Every word is accurate – although I notice he stops short of some of the more obvious comparisons.

For example, look at the man in the infographic at the top of this article.

He is in a wheelchair because his legs were shot to pieces by an Israeli Defence Force sniper (or several of them).

Can you think of another regime, in history, that allowed its soldiers to mutilate members of another race living in the same country, for fun?

Of course, supporters of Israel would say it is anti-Semitic to suggest any similarity. However, as I made clear in a previous article, allegations of anti-Semitism can only be accurate if the claims are untrue.

And the UK cannot claim any moral high ground because our government is complicit in the Israeli regime’s activities.

Who do you think sold Israel the guns those snipers have been using?

NOTE: I wrote this article late on the evening of May 18, believing the clip to have been made in the last few days. In fact, it is a year old. Every word still rings true, though. It stands as an even worse indictment against the government of that country than I stated in the article – because nobody with the ability to change the situation took a blind bit of notice. Our conclusion must be that these people know what they are and are determined both to continue their persecution of people belonging to another race – and to dodge criticism with accusations of anti-Semitism.
