No such thing as a free lynch?


 Israel Purim

 From the Jerusalem Post.


See that pic? It's Israeli schoolkids dressed up for Purim. These youngsters educated to be both masters and servants of a racist state have clearly not got the hang of Purim. Purim is a time for celebration and fancy dress but fancy dress is what you wear to pretend to be something you're not, not to reveal what you are. I'm sure there are psycho-something-or-other-ists who suggest that people dress up as what they would like to be, in which case our Purim celebrants have managed a win-win, they have dressed up as a bunch of violent murderous racists. These people are said to be seventeen which means next year they can don another racist uniform, the uniform of the Israeli army. If they keep this year's robes, the Israeli army might save a few New Israeli Shekels on uniforms. Maybe there is such a thing as a free lynch after all.
