Crusaders: Kerry & Lapid

Internet Radio

…Yesterday the big head line in JPost hard copy was “Kerry unveils $4 billion economic plan to revitalize flagging Palestinian economy”

To “revitalize”? That connotes restoring it to a former and healthier condition, which is simply detached from reality. How can you revitalize something that was never vital?

I remember Judea and Samaria right after the Six-Day War. Wretched is not too strong a word. I remember the few and crummy roads, the mean villages. I remember Jerusalem after 19 years of Jordanian rule with three stop traffic lights, alleyways where people along open sewers. No street lights. What is Kerry talking about?…
