BBC foreign correspondent Matthew Price:
"Israel, as a colony, cannot continue to exist" – interesting article –
— Matthew Price (@BBCMatthewPrice) August 6, 2014
Just a couple of snippets from the article that Price finds so “interesting”:
It is time to call a spade a spade: Israel, as a colony, is a constant source of violence and conflict. It is not an ex-colony, nor is it an accepted part of the world for many. It is a territory in the Middle East under Western occupation, which possesses no political legitimacy now, nor can it ever acquire such legitimacy in the future because it has no raison d’être and cannot create one…
What I propose here is that the flow of millions of Zionists to Palestine be reversed. That the Zionists who emigrated to Israel should be offered a peaceful and generously compensated return to where they came from or the choice of any other destination. And that the descendants of emigrants who were born in Israel be invited to return to the countries of their parents/grandparents, or to go somewhere else as they choose.
Just wow. And if this is what BBC journalists are happy to promote on social media, imagine what they’re saying to each other off line.
