Remember that the land now owned by Israel was a gift from the British, who acquired it by military conquest. Is it right that a foreign occupying power can give away land which is being used by native occupants of that land?
It’s been an obvious fact for years that Trump is a racist and has done everything he can to stoke the ugliest aspects of the American political imagination. It was disgustingly clear when he led a campaign designed to “other” the first African American president of the United States by absurdly questioning his citizenship, and it was also evident in his very productive use of our long history of anti-immigrant fervor and xenophobia during and after his campaign for the presidency. https://sandiegofreepress.org/2017/08/following-the-lead-of-the-liars-how-conservatives-are-winning-their-war-on-reality/
John O'Farrell: For all my lifetime, the Conservative party has pulled off a con-trick
For all my lifetime, the Conservative party has pulled off this incredible con-trick of combining apparent social respectability while behaving like the worst kind of thugs with the casual stroke of a pen. We think of hooligans as being young working-class males at 70s football matches, we are made to think of violence as something started by drunks in pub car parks, but there is another sort of violence that is remotely perpetrated by apparently courteous people who exude charm and manners and sophistication.Polite thuggery, that’s the essence of the people who rule over us. Charming barbarians all of them; they know which cutlery to use for the starter because they have polished table manners. They don’t think it is in the slightest bit rude that, due to their actions, someone else is queueing for dinner at a foodbank. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/sep/12/its-finally-time-to-resist-conservatives-polite-thuggery
