Gaza on the Charles

At Atlas Shrugs, Pamela reports on the City of Cambridge's 'peace commission' which apparently has the unanimous support of the uber-liberal Cambridge (Massachusetts) city council.
  • “It’s best not to practice your Hebrew with Palestinians even if someone uses it with you.”
  • ·“It is better not to wear a kippah or yarmulke in Palestinian communities. Again, while hosts are glad to meet Israelis and Jews, there are many eyes and ears watching for collaborators.”
  • · “Israeli settlers and soldiers disguise themselves (as tourists or Palestinians) and also enter Palestinian areas boldly without disguise.”
  • · “If a host gives you a kuffiya (traditional Palestinian headdress for men) or other clothes to wear, it is a good idea to put them on. It will help you blend in with the community, which may be important for local security. It communicates that you belong.”

The above “travel tips” were used in orientation sessions[1] for The City of Cambridge Peace Commission as part of their official mission to Bethlehem last winter. Working closely with the Cambridge to Bethlehem People to People Committee, The Peace Commission’s solidarity mission was given a rousing sendoff by every member of the Cambridge City Council last November.

Not every municipality in this country is fortunate enough to have a Peace Commission, but, thanks to the foresight of the ever-Progressive archons of correctness, Cambridge crafted their agency more than 25 years ago to defend its citizens from the ravages of nuclear war. And so, while the rest of us wrong-thinking retrogrades are becoming toast on Massachusetts Avenue after the Big One drops, the enlightened citizens of Cambridge will survive to bond with revolutionaries from Nicaragua to Gaza.

Read it all. Only in Massachusetts does every city and town get to conduct its own foreign policy. I know. I grew up there.

I hereby renounce my citizenship in the People's Commonwealth of Massachesetts.

I cannot believe what I am seeing. Yet sadly I know it to be true.
