It is an inverted moral calculus that tries to persuade the world to demonize one state that tries its civilized best to abide in a difficult time and place, and rides merrily by the examples and practices of dozens of states and leaderships that drop into brutality every day without a twinge of regret or a whisper of condemnation.No, no, no, no--Arabs always good; Jews always bad.
Say it often--and ardently--enough, and you can persuade yourself that it's true.
And speaking of the moral inversion: the days of the Queen's University Zion-loathing rector may be numbered. Here's a poem in honour of the impending termination of his rectorship (rectorhood?):
A Queen's University rector
Did his utmost to raise the dark spectre
Of "Zionists" who "oppress."
Academe needs a 'Big Lie' detector.
