  1. Maybe The Bard was right. I condemned his portrayal of merchant and money lender, but with 40 years of reading and watching events in the Middle East since 1967, I am ready to concede that the character Shylock was indeed an accurate portrayal of at least 50% of Israelis and 100% of the barbaric settlers.

    1. You must have read a different Bard than I did. Shylock was alone and persecuted by everyone, and I seem to remember his lovely daughter being shunned. If ever there was a justiification for vindictiveness, Shakespeare justified it with his story of Shylock. The anti-Jewish characters in that play had a lot to answer for. And in the end they got off cheating Skylock. I don't think the freeloading settlers, as they swim in their swimming pools of stolen water while they hold Palestinians in an open air jail, merit being compared to Skylock.
