PALESTINE MAKES IT TO THE TOP OF THE ‘LIST’

‘SHULDIK’… that means GUILTY in Yiddish.
‘SHANDA’… that means SHAME in Yiddish.

Palestine made it to the top of the list… of WORLD REFUGEES.


A Palestinian refugee displays a key which symbolises his return

So, why the Yiddish words at the beginning of this? Simply because Israel is to blame for this and Israel must feel the shame.

A country that itself was allowed to exist because of the refugees that survived after the holocaust. A country that should be the first to never allow those horrible things to happen to any other nation. Instead, it has done everything in its power since its ‘independance’ to keep the Palestinians from attaining that very same status of Statehood.

Perhaps the growing boycott will change some minds and attitudes in the Israeli government…. something has to.
Support for the boycott is growing in Israel as well…

    Zionists chose then archaic language of Hebrew, rather than what Ashkenazik Jews spoke, Yiddish.

    Language was a big issue here in the beginning.. Eastern European Jews spoke Yiddish, Thise from Western Europe spoke a language called Ladino, or Judeo-Espanol.
    Jews from the Arab countries spoke Arabic.
    So, the revitilisation and modernasation of Hebrew was the option the state went for.
    It’s the least of our problem here Renegade… believe me.

    I do not believe that this is the least of the problem. It is part of the problem. It was vitally important for the Zionist movement to destroy the remnants of an alternative Jewish culture, one that was international as opposed to national. They did this by depriving the survivors of the gas chambers of Europe of their language with its fine culture and they did the same to the Arab Jews who have learnt to feel shame about their own language and dynamic culture. As the state destroyed the Palestinian future, so it destroyed the Jewish past. Without memory we are but puppets in the hands of the manipulators, and eventually dance to its tune.

    Rootless – I think your name is a lie. You seem to understand roots more than most.

    “A People Without Knowledge of Their History Is Like a Tree Without Roots.”

    I agree, only a one-dimensional definition of Jewish as nation-state is allowed. It is the lie behind the lies.

    Rootless cosmopolitan was once the insult visited upon Jews by Anti-Semites. I take it on in the same way that some Black Americans use nigger as a badge of pride. It is an identity that does not allow for investment in any nation state.

    Strange logic, but OK…
    I really dislike (hate) the use of the ‘n’ word on my blog… I allowed this comment but will not allow others with that word.
