Moral Theater

It was bound to happen; now that the Irish and other activists made their point with freedom flotillas to Gaza, American moral actors want in on the theater. While this is a legitimate political engagement, you’d think they could come up with something more creative and effective than a copycat boat trip. I mean, if they want to stop the brutalization of Palestinians by the State of Israel, they should be storming the White House and halls of Congress, or attacking arms manufacturers.

The money saved not buying a boat could be donated to the Palestinian Red Crescent, or invested in an anti-war campaign.
