re: #16 Aye Pod

We’re not talking about demonising Israel, we’re talking about demonising a dead 23 year old girl whose views were not given the chance to evolve.

Her death, however unfortunate, IS being used to demonize Israel…If not for the ISM thrusting her amidst conflict about which she completely had the wool pulled over her eyes (if one wants to assume total innocence) she would be alive and presumably thriving and no one would be disparaging her name. That she died, in circumstances about which none of us can be absolutely certain, and is being foisted upon the world as a martyr/hero of the Palestinian cause is the sole reason we hear about her today.
