So Full of Themselves, Their Empty Selves

And right on the heels of the previous post, I read this:

Yaron Ezrahi, a political scientist who signed the academicians' letter, said that it, along with the declaration by the theater professionals, had revived public debate on the settlements despite efforts to blur the pre-1967 boundary between Israel and the West Bank, known as the Green Line.

"We have reestablished an emotional, psychological and cultural Green Line between the settlements and us, between the occupation and us," Ezrahi said.

Yossi Polak, an actor who signed the statement by the theater artists, was more cautious about whether the declaration would have a lasting impact. "I think the word 'occupation' has somehow returned to public consciousness, but it can be submerged once again," he said. "We'll have to wait and see."

These guys are so full of themselves.

Their political terms have always been high-profiled. With Haaretz, and J Street, and Peace Now, and B'tselem, Gush Shalom, etcetera, how could it be otherwise. But I repeat that 77% oppose their move.

Some people simply don't know what they're talking about when it comes to politics. But I think it reflects their general lack of knowledge as for the situation in Israel.

The total pseudo intellectualism of marxism!

It is like being surrounded by the undead: flesh falling off bones, rags, the ghouls still walking around spreading death and destruction. The living embodiment of marx's perversion!
