Sarah Silverman has used her contribution to a new Haggadah to criticise Israel's continued presence in the West Bank.
“Oppression will always prove to be on the wrong side of history”, she writes.
The American comedian is one of 30 authors, artists and Jewish thinkers who contributed to a new Jubilee Haggadah which has been published to mark the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War when Israel captured the West Bank.
The project was created by a group called SISO – “Save Israel. Stop the Occupation” - and features diaspora leaders who are calling for an end to the occupation. It was also supported by the New Israel Fund.
“Of all the people, Jews know the bitterness of being oppressed and not being in our own country”, Ms Silverman writes. “That’s what makes the occupation all so ironic. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between right and wrong, the situation is complicated and scary.”Useful idiocy will always prove to be on the wrong side of history, including the idiocy of "progressive" Jews like Sarah who haven't twigged to the fact that when Palestinians talk about "the occupation," they're referring to "the occupation" of the whole of Israel.
By the Jews.
Or what part of "from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free" don't you understand, Ms. S.?
