Resource Center for No Israel

In this week's issue of Metro Santa Cruz:

If you want, check out the Resource Center for Nonviolence. My only comments: whoever made this obviously lives in Santa Cruz and should at least know how to draw a peace sign (not to be confused with the Mercedes Benz star), and I love how stereotypical the Jew in the car looks.

Maybe the Mercedes sign is supposed to allude to a german/nazi connection, and that this whole Peace thing is just a front for Anti-Israel sentiment.

Wow, totally didn't think of that. Could be, could be. Extremely ambiguous and subtle though.

Let's not get carried away here with the peace sign.

That being said, this is a FANTASTIC bit of political satire. I have dealt with the resource center in the past, most notably in connection with the Israel/Palestinian dialogue week that was held at UCSC a few years ago, and can only say that they hate the State of Israel, and more than likely Jews, with a vengance.

As for the cartoon:

One can learn about the leadership of a country by observing the words of its clowns.

Israel is a shame for Jews. Who loves Israel hates Jews, who loves Jews hate Israel

Are you kidding me?!? This cartoon is a humorous swipe at the outrageous assertions that have been leveled at the RCNV over the past couple of years, such as the outrageous comments as above.

This is what is known as SATIRE. It is so over-the-top it is meant to challenge the crazy allegations the Resource Center has gotten from pro-Israel people who want -0- dialogue on the Israel/Palestine problem.

Here's a dare for anyone who is unconvinced: I double dog dare you to go to the next RCNV event and introduce yourself. If you politely want to discuss issues with them, I'll wager that you'll not only be treated with kindness, but welcomed.

Also, if the RCNV is anti-Jew, why do many Jews volunteer and work there???

Things to ponder!

Happy Hanukkah!
