Our friends come in all shapes and sizes.
I have to say, tho, that I love strong beautiful women who stand the hell up.
GrEaT sAtAn"S gIrLfRiEnD certainly does that.
She's kind of a chicklet, I suppose, but I am getting the very distinct impression that perhaps she should not be underestimated.
If young people actually care about social justice - a dubious proposition to begin with - then they need to stand with the tiny Jewish minority in the Middle East.
I am not familiar with GrEaT sAtAn"S gIrLfRiEnD but she's been around longer than we have. Her blog goes all the way back to 2007 and it looks to me like she's been keeping it up on a regular basis.
People like Peter Beinart - a gentleman that supported the Iraq War, by the way - love to suggest that American Jewish youth are turning away from Israel on moral grounds. This is total hogwash. If diaspora Jewish youth are turning away from Israel it is not for moral reasons, but merely because Israel is not a big part of their lives to begin with. Diaspora Jewish youth identify as American or Australian or British and, for the most part, do not think all that much about Israel, period.
It's not that they oppose Israel because Beinart doesn't like the security fence, but that they spend very little time thinking about Israel at all. They are simply doing other things and living their lives.
Fortunately, we still have gutsy and smart young women who have the common sense and common decency to stand up against an obvious wrong.
This is just a brief little note to let you guys know that this woman is out there and standing strong.
What I say is that GrEaT sAtAn"S gIrLfRiEnD should go forth and kick ass.
