It includes this excellent section on the media:
I can write a fifty page piece about where all the hatred comes from. There are too many fingers to point at. The media, (I’m talking to you CNN, NY Times, etc.), who instead of reporting on every single rocket fired into Israel, chooses to focus on every civilian casualty of this war, instigated and perpetuated by Hamas. Constantly providing the numbers of the dead, instead of the number, eleven, which is the number of cease fires Hamas broke, thereby causing all of this death and destruction. Repeatedly displaying images of dead civilians without any of the context that many of the deaths are terrorists and that any real civilian casualties were victims of Hamas’s double war crimes of firing rockets at innocent civilians while using their innocent civilians as human shields. Or that a number of casualties include civilians who were killed by errant Hamas rockets.
This is what fuels the fire and allows for people to think they now have the right to wish death upon my children.
He finishes his piece so:
I can go on and on about how all of the pro-Palestinian rallies have signs that say "Death to Jews" and praising Hitler, and why Jews everywhere are now targets of hate crimes, hate incidents, vandalism and murder. I could ... but I have jokes to write. Because I’m trying to make the world a better place with laughter. Sadly, we now live in a world full of people that love to hate, more than they love to laugh.
So, Elon, here's a thought:
Growing up in New York in the 1950s, the "good old days", we were cursed, yelled out, threatened and occasionally beaten (and we gave back) just because we were Jews. The Irish and Italian toughs in Queens where I lived didn't need what Israel was doing, or not doing, to hate and act on that hate.
It came from another place, and we'll leave it at that.
But, Elon, if you want to turn this experience of mine into a joke, something like:
But reflecting on my experience, I guess things have changed. In the past, the anti-Semites didn't need to use Israel as an excuse to curse and beat Jews. Maybe that means something for the good?
go, right ahead.
But don't stop being who you are.
