This is funny. While engaged in a standard Zionist whine about the media's unfairness to Israel, D.C. attorney Paul Mirengoff of the neocon blog Powerline lets the cat out of the bag--albeit without elaboration. The piece is called, "Name that ethnicity" and is about the fact that the Washington Post and others have described alleged Michigan stabber Elias Abuelazam as an Israeli, but failed to point out that he's Arab.
I've helpfully bolded the cat in the paragraphs below so you'll recognize it when it comes out of the bag:
Israel has a large Arab population. During much of its history relations between Israel Jews and Arabs weren't bad. In fact, they were pretty good in Haifa, which I used to visit. But in the past 20 years or so, relations have soured and from what I gather, many Israeli Arabs feel a deep hostility towards the Jewish state.
Given the fact that Israeli Arabs are, in some senses, a "population apart," it would seem worth mentioning in any full article about Abuelazam
Gosh, could the souring relations have anything to do with the fact that Israeli Arabs are, in some senses, a "population apart"?
