Expired excuses: 10 cards overplayed by Israel

Published July 23rd, 2014 - 12:15 GMT

We’ve all had boyfriends who were emotional manipulators; they either turn around situations, where him cheating on you somehow ends up being your fault, or they fight dirty so if you have a headache, they will have a brain tumor, and on top of that they’re excellent guilt mongers.

Well, Israel is THAT boyfriend. In its on and off destructive relationship with Palestine, Israel seems to fit the bill for an emotional manipulator. It plays dirty and overplays certain cards to justify its actions against the Palestinians.

You're not fooling anyone, Israel. After 66 years of this unhealthy - and forced - cohabitation, Israel’s excuses have grown as old as their original roots in Europe, and Israel has discovered that it is no longer easy to get away with murder in the age of social media.

Israel has a great surgeon who’s managed to transform its face from an ugly terrorist into a peaceful citizen. It hides behind that mask, providing hope that Israel is an enlightened, democratic nation and Palestinians are primitive, backward and violent sub-humans.
