My Mideast Punchlines: Orwellian….

The UN’s Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) is at it again: after releasing a report last month declaring Israel an “apartheid regime,” the body is now preparing to release a new report equating Israeli “occupation” to historical American slavery.

The unemployment rate in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank is so high that most Palestinians would give their right arms to be slaves of the Israelis. At least they’d have something to do in return for being fed and watered. And just think of the social benefits an Israeli identity card would give them. Of course, the real slave owners are the leaders of Hamas and the PA, who subjugate their people while lining their own pockets. George Orwell had a nice way of putting it in 1984: ‘War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength’.
