Cal Tzedek: Orientalism is alive and well (in case you were wondering)

Orientalism is alive and well (in case you were wondering)

I am fortunate to be able to keep up with the latest in "pro-Israel" propaganda, courtesy of a family member who likes to forward such things. The latest such example, reprints an article from the Jewish World Review that reports a horrific occurrence; that a Palestinian woman was murdered by her mother after having been raped and impregnated by her brothers.

And what is the message we are to draw from this horrific event? The preface to the article, by one Naomi Ragen , informs us that this is "For all those who think that Palestinians have a "culture" that needs expression."

How disgusting would it be if someone were to comment that some of the recent atrocities committed by Israeli soldiers (e.g. mutilating dead bodies) meant that Jews do not have a culture worth expressing, or even a "culture"?

Yes, it's true. The Arabs in Judea and Samaria have indeed a culture. It is a culture of death and destruction. It is them who have a problem with coexistence with Jews, otherwise they should not be bothered if Jews live nearby.
