A very refreshing comedy video from Israel that rips into the absurd propaganda the Israeli state feeds its citizens and the rest of the world. H/t Andrew Sullivan:
The video is sure to create a lot of controversy because it touches upon sacred tenants of the modern Israeli narrative – that it is a victim and can never be criticized, that the rest of the world is reflexively anti semitic and hostile. All the while it carries out horrendous crimes against its neighbors and refuses to take responsibility for its actions. Comedy is an effective way of highlighting the truth, and no doubt many Jews and Israelis will find this painful – because it is true.
