New blog on the roll

I don't know why I haven't got round to this until now but I've just added the Lawrence of Cyberia blog to the blogroll which means we get the heading of the latest post as and when it's published. "As and when"? Why not just "as" or "when"? Never mind, I don't know. It's like, "this day and age". Why not "this day", or "this age"?

Anyway, Lawrence of Cyberia is a jolly good, very informative blog with posts like, No Such Thing As Liberal Zionism and a quote of the week every now and then like,

"A Nation... is a group of persons united by a common error about their ancestry and a common dislike of their neighbors".

- Karl Deutsch, Nationality and Its Alternatives, 1969 (cited by Shlomo Sand, The Invention of the Jewish People, page 1)

and
"To call oneself an Israeli Zionist is to engage in the dispossession of an entire people".

-- The Logic Of Colonial Power by Nir Rosen; The Guardian, 29 Dec 2008.


What about non-Israeli zionists? What do they say about themselves? That they are shrill nasty racist smear merchants? Check out Lawrence of Cyberia, I'm sure she, for it is she, puts it better then me.

Ah yes, and she does very good analogies and "what ifs" that raise the question of how you might feel if your country was ruled as a zionist state. A good untangler, that's what Lawrence of Cyberia is.
