Exactly ! Our own funny moods about zionism, semitism and racism are
blocking our ways_ the historical events of WO II makes us emotional
attached/ bounded with the Jews and thus with Israel ( not with the Pales-
tinians) in such a way that we don 't dare to be against Jews.
And by the way, here atleast in Belgium, it is by law forbidden to be
anti- Jews or to be anti- semitic. The government is choosing the memes
for us !
And, no offence intented ( this is hot issue), in that way, keeping the
historical events in mind, we don 't dare to point our finger towards
Israel and condemn them.... and I don 't mean some obscure resolution
in the VN which will be blocked by the US !
