Self-hating Jews and Little Rocket Man?
Priti Patel, as quoted in the Guardian: “This summer I travelled to Israel, on a family holiday paid for by myself. While away I had the opportunity to meet a number of people and organisations."
Some might simply label Priti Patel a traitor, but that won't answer this question: Though she may well have paid for the trip out of her own pocket, was she then reimbursed by Israel?
That question doesn't appear to have been asked or answered, not even in this comprehensive analysis at Johathan-Cook.net.
If you see it anywhere, please let me know.
Meanwhile, in the wake of a move to expand the term "anti-Semitism" to include any criticism of Israel, Jewish youth are willing to brave down all sorts of name-calling - such as "Self-Hating Jews" - simply for asking a number of very astute questions, among them "Why weren't we told" the truth about what's happening in Israel/Palestine?
Additional Jewish food for thought on the subject of Israel:
And then there's North Korea:
On being Korean in America in the time of the ‘Axis of Evil’ and ‘Rocket Man’
"The division of Korea and its consequences were more than a historical backdrop; they were a prologue."
"I cannot recall a year of my life when talk of invading North Korea has not been part of the news cycle. Even before President George W. Bush’s Axis of Evil speech, in which he declared Iran, Iraq and North Korea enemies, the specter of the unresolved war in Korea had always haunted my life."
Canadian David Frum proudly takes credit for coining the damning epithet, "Axis of Evil", and we have Trump himself to thank for the pejorative: "Little Rocket Man" which thoughtlessly includes an insult to people of below average height everywhere.
According to his glowing bio on Wikipedia: Frum considers himself "a not especially observant Jew".
That also fits the description of many staunch Zionists. Indeed, Frum has embarrassed himself more than once with his inability to accept criticism of Israel's gratuitous brutality against Palestinians. See: Controversies
