Gaza Roundup 18: In which Ms. Manx gets snippy with Israel

Yes, folks, this one’s a Short ‘n’ Stubby! You know what that means, don’t you?


Yep, Queen ‘Bina trots out the stump-tailed kitty.

So. Here we go, in no particular order:

First up, Ms. Manx (and National Geographic) would like you to know that Israel did not start out as a Jewish state, but a pagan one. Horrifying to the ultra-Orthodox types, no doubt, but something we Witches take totally for granted, along with evolution.

And didja know that until just very recently (like, oh, around the attack on the Mavi Marmara on the 31st of last month), Israel loved Turkey so much it suppressed all discussion of the Armenian genocide? And that, since the attack, it’s been doing the opposite, calling the Turks islamofascist and all? It’s true!

And here’s something else that’s ugly but true:


Which makes this shrieeeeeky press release unexpectedly funny. “We Con the World” (which you can see here) is made by a group which is not only projecting its own intentions big-time, but might as well call itself “USA for Israel”.

And finally, if you want to blame someone for all those goddamned vuvuzelas, look no further.
