I will see your blitz and raise you one ghetto

Yesterday, Netanyahu compared the Hamas rocket attacks to what Britain endured during the second world war.

"There's only been one other instance where a democracy has been rocketed and pelleted with these projectiles of death, and that's Britain during World War Two. Israel is undergoing a similar bombardment now."

If a seven month, blitz, dropping over 36,000 tonnes of explosives, and killing over 60,000 civilians is similar to seventeen days of aimless, highly defensible, rockets, being fired in your general direction and killing one civilian, then Gaza and the treatment of the Palestinians by Israel is similar to the Warsaw ghetto and the treatment by the Nazis.

At least in the latter comparison the numbers are closer.

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
