The Truth is in The Hashtag

Specifically, the hashtag of Obama’s visit to Palestine/Israel:

obamaNotice how Palestine and the Palestinians are effectively excised and marginalized.  Of course, the hashtag could just as easily have been #ObamaInPalestine but then the Israelis and Christian Zionists would have had a cow.  Or it could have been #PrezInPalIsrael.  Shorter than either of the others.  But to make sure that the Palestinians were demoted and the Israelis elevated- what was chosen, was chosen.

    Dehumanized.

    Ignored. On a good day, just marginalized or treated as second-class citizens. Usually killed with impunity.

    Anyone who approves of how we treat the Palestinians has no business claiming to be a follower of Christ, who loved the poor and oppressed much more than the powerful and tyrannical.
