Israel: No Fun for Palestinian Children

Israeli Desert Peace mocks summer jobs available to Palestinian youngsters from Jenin.

  • Desert Peace is not an Israeli blog. I do not know where this anonymous blogger is from, but it is highly unlikely s/he is based in Jerusalem. I have *twice* left comments on Desert Peace in which I ask the blogger, who provides no contact information, to provide some sort of evidence that s/he lives in Jerusalem, but s/he refuses to publish my comments.

    Why is this very dubious, consistently (and rabidly) anti-Israel blogger mentioned in the Israel links more frequently than any of the demonstrably Israeli bloggers? His/her message is consistently hateful, and has on occasion included Holocaust denial.

    Furthermore, Desert Peace does not list any Israeli blogs on his/her blogroll. S/he does, however, link to pretty much every rabidly anti-Israel blog in the blogosphere. Furthermore, the blogger has a link for “I blog for Palestine” on his/her sidebar.

    I request, therefore, that if GV really considers this blogger’s message so appealing (and I cannot imagine why, since it is so negative and hate-filled), that it be included in the links to Palestinian blogs.
