Pure propaganda. They're trying to make Israel look like the United States.
I have a friend who lived in Israel for a long time. It's not like this at all. Israel is not a democracy, it is a tyrannical, apartheid mess who
relies on American foreign aid (aka welfare) in order to survive.
My friend says that the people there are incredibly rude and incredibly racist. You can tell the tourists by their manners...the tourists are polite
and wait their turn. The locals are pushy and there is no such thing as "wait your turn", it's a free-for-all. The housing situation is dependent
on who you are. European Ashkanazi jews are at the top of the dogpile. Sepharadic jews are down much lower, although they are the true Semites. At
the bottom are the non jews. The construction is cheap and crude in comparison to western standards.
Their agriculture is draining the Sea of Gallilee....they have a looming water crisis of epic proportions. You can only turn a desert into a garden
for so long before you run out of water.
Did you know that a Christian can get 5 years in prison for giving a bible to a jew there, or even just being kind to them? It is considered trying
to convert them, a jailable offense.
My friend tells me that the Israelis believe that their land "shall not be divided", therefore, there is no plan to work with the Palestinians. The
Israelis will take and take until they have driven out, whether through physical relocation or genocide, everybody they don't like.
The Balfour Declaration has been a disaster. As an American, I want to stop all aid to Israel, and let their actions get the consesquences they
deserve. I know I sound harsh, but I'm tired of our government kow-towing to AIPAC at the expense of our own well-being, financially and otherwise.
