Whenever we are unsure of the correct stance to take on a complex geopolitical issue, what better oracle of wisdom to consult than a 21 year old pop singer from the civilised world’s most
in-bred isolated country?
The New Zealand singer, Lorde (no, I’ve never heard any of her work either) has just cancelled (or “canceleld” in New Zealand Herald Kiwinese) her Tel Aviv concert after a fan tweeted her.
Apparently, Lorde is “learning all the time too”. Hopefully un-abbreviated English will be next on the curriculum;
The Wiki page for her tour was quickly updated, presumably by someone who is against the BDSM movement but not one who can actually spell either, unless the protests really were over lexicology and syntax;
Israel is the only functioning democracy in the entire Middle East. Every opportunity for the Palestinians to sign an agreement which would have guaranteed a sovereign Palestinian state has been rejected and has then preceded unprovoked terrorist first strikes. For a handy timeline, Ben Shapiro’s recent podcast has a summary here (just after the intro).
The Palestinian authorities prefer to bury their children in the hope that Israel will be destroyed in the future.
Lorde is just the latest weak-willed and weak-minded vacuous pop star to fall victim to the BDSM bullies. Australian Nick Cave (the Poor Man’s Leonard Cohen/Tom Waits) being a notable exception.
She’s in fine company though; only last week the UK government signed a Yemenese motion to criticise Trump’s decision to relocate the USA embassy to Jerusalem, the country’s capital.
Ponder that for a second;
The UK government just decided to sign a pointless UN motion tabled by that country with an exemplary human rights’ record, Yemen and criticise two of its most important allies over a decision that is entirely their business to make.
Wow, Prime Minister Theresa May must be sitting on a huge majority and groundswell of popular support. Oh, hang on.
And lastly, can people please learn how to fucking use English correctly?
