Say Death to American Just One More Time

Are you sick of the anti-Israeli protesters. I am. But honestly I have never thought much about pro-Israeli or pro-Palestinian groups. Those people have been fighting since 1882 when an Arab man was accidentally shot by a Jewish guard during a wedding. Every time you think the dust has settled there, a conflict springs back up. It’s beyond tedious.

But, to paraphrase the late Andy Rooney, I have Jewish friends. Good, upstanding people they are. They don’t seem any different than my non-Jewish friends. They put their pants on one leg at a time, breathe the same air, and bleed red just like me. I do have empathy for them in this most recent battle.

I don’t think I know any Palestinians, though. I’m sure there are many good ones who only want peace.
