The evil you deplored

Great image!  The camel is being swarmed by tiny figures emerging from the depths. Down at the base of the wall someone has asked the question: "Israel - have you become the evil you deplored?"

For many of us the question is rhetorical - and the answer is "Yes".  Like the abused child who goes on to himself become an abuser, most modern-day Israelis are indifferent to the sufferings of the people they have dispossessed.  They enjoy their privileged lives upon the suffering, despair and pain of the indigenous population, the Palestinians.  So much pain and suffering, all predicated upon a belief that there is such a thing as a Chosen People.
