Miscegenation: the secret fear of the supremacist state

Jewish girls 'trapped'
Really? Given the power of the state of Israel, as well as its ruthlessness in dealing with the Palestinians, one struggles to believe there are thousands of Jewish girls living in a state of captivity in “Arab villages”. I would suggest that the vast majority of the girls are there because they want to be there — because they want to be with their Palestinian lovers. And that’s what hurts the apartheid state: the thought that Jews and Arabs are having sex, and thereby threatening to pollute the sacred Jewish gene pool. It’s not that the Jewish girls have to be saved from the Arabs, but that, in the eyes of the Jewish authorities, they have to be saved from themselves.

Bearded man reveals terror bomb ingredients

Posted in britain, poetry by Blimp deflator on February 24, 2013


The bearded man
in the next flat
is making a bomb.

Thinks I can’t hear him
muttering his incantations
as he mixes
the baking soda and birdseed,

his dirty nightie
flapping on the clothesline,
sending semaphore messages
to the training camp
in Bhuggah Bazaar.

Greets me in the corridor
with a sidelong glance
and a twitch
of his singed eyebrows.

But we all know
that next week,
decked out in suit and tie
and gripping the rail of the dock,
he will plead not guilty,

will swear to Almighty God
that his moth-eaten canary
was the sole beneficiary
of all his endeavors,

white knuckles flashing
for a second
beneath black skin.

The headline on this post must have attracted the attention of spooks throughout the English-speaking world. Hello, spooks. How has your day been? How is your program of surveillance and entrapment going? Railroaded a few more Muslim patsies into the slammer? Well done! The price of freedom is eternal vigilance . . . and a little waterboarding now and then. But let’s not worry too much about that. The gloves are off, right? Now’s not the time to be fastidious. Not when the future of “civilization as we know it” is at stake.
