200. What of Israel's Apologists?
Sun Oct 15, 2023, 07:51 AM
Oct 2023

Breaching the 1947 borders? No problem? Occupying land you've no claim to? Hey, ask any Native American what we did! Ignoring UN Resolutions? The good ol' USA gotcha covered! Want us to go war with Iran for ya, like we did with Iraq? Just say the word! There's no such thing as spilling too much American blood for Israel, because you're our best buddy! Let's just forget about the USS Liberty, Jonathan Pollard, Rachel Corrie, and all those inconvenient breaks in the rosy illusion!
