The Middle East Conflict on Campus

Generational shift in anti-Israel attitude - graph PewWhat some see as a celebration of culture through food, others see as a political statement, and an offensive one at that. Just slip an Israeli flag on a toothpick.

To the Tufts chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, last fall’s Taste of Israel was appropriation, pure and simple.

“I don’t think the Palestinian students on this campus would see it as ‘cultural’ if they were to walk in and see flags of Israel all over the food their grandmother used to cook before she was evicted from her village,” said Nic Serhan, an S.J.P. member who is part Arab, part African-American.

      If Israel allows her enemies to exist long enough, her enemies will win.

    Since Israel abjectly refuses to deal with the viper’s pit that is Gaza, I no longer have any sympathy for the Israeli regime. The Israeli people should rise up and clear out Gaza once and for all.

    Here’s what you do. Bring pepper spray and air horns and use them copiously at all these events. And if any of them get mad beat them like they’ve never been hit before. And let’s be honest – none of them have ever been spanked in their lives. The looks on their faces will be priceless.

    Unluckily for “Palestinians” they have a culture that never existed until they decided their “national narrative” was to be based on obliterating their enemy (the Jews) (a quaint but long-standing Mohammedan tradition). Interestingly, the war that was launched to do this happened prior to the official “Palestinian” national existence and they lost. It’s so embarrassing and shaming when one is defeated in the attempt to genocide. Ironically, the “Great Nakba” is the reverse of the celebrations of Ramadan.
