Ari Shavit writes, "I’ll stand by the damned, because I know that if not for them the State of Israel would have been born. If not for them, I would not have been born. They did the filthy work that enables my people, my nation, my daughter, my sons, and me to live."
Just read this horse-waste. What's he writing here? something like this (my rendition) "... The murderous gangs that killed or ran off hundreds of thousands of Palestinians committed terrible crimes, they are guilty, what they did was wrong, it was "filthy work" and that work continues today ... " Okay, for a half normal human being what comes next? Something like, "We must make amends. We must make it as right as we now can." But no, amends are nowhere, in its place are me and me and more me (my children, my nation (what nation?)). Poor Ari. I think he really wants sympathy because the suffering of the Palestinian people has forced him to stand by, and be one of, the filthy people. He's writing something like, "If those Palestinian ... okay, people, there I've said it, they are people, had only had found a way not to suffer under the slaughter then I and my daughter and son could stand with the righteous instead of living life indebted to the "filthy ones" the "damned." He's really saying that he's a victim. Why? Because circumstances have forced him to be unjust.
When I first read this I couldn't get my brain around it. I thought, "He couldn't be writing this nonsense." but he was and did. It's pathetic and twisted.
