For how long have many of us suggested that Jew-haters criticize Israel as cover for their anti-Semitism? Benjamin Netanyahu and Drumpf have helped us reconcile another frightening fact of life: Nationalism of any kind usurps reason, truth and justice. If Bibi Netanyahu thinks that Obama was an enemy of Israel and Trump with his countless anti-Semitic associates and advisors can be described as Israel’s best friend, what Netanyahu is really saying is, I don’t care if you hate my people as long as you help my tribe defeat our common enemy the Arab-Muslim tribe. So much truth, honesty, universal values and ethics.
Bigoted nationalists of a feather inevitably stink and stick together.
