Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank asks why there aren't any comments. From my part I think I have said everything I need to say about the IP situation, yet however much the situation and the location changes, the underlying problems never move in any meaningful way.

So you end up simply repeating yourself again and again until I have succeeded in boring myself, let alone everybody else with my thoughts. We can say how it epxoses the hyocrisy of Israel/US/western pious lies about humanitarain interst, but that applies to Zimbabwe and sudan and a lot of other places that don't get the media traction. But that's cos Israel are white, they're supposed to be civilised (not like the african/s American/asian), they're supposed to be the good guys. We're not so much annoyed at what they're doing as we are at making us look as bad as everybody else. we imagine that is pto everyone else, but of course they already knew. No, it exposes the lie of our imagined exceptional human compassion to ourselves.

We've bent over backwards for years to excuse the Israelis (ie ourselves), but this time too far.

keep to the Fen Causeway
