From Brussels: Rejecting the fake solidarity of Israel

"Most of the messages sent to the people of Brussels this week were heartfelt and appreciated. A few, however, were cynical. One was contemptible; it came from Israel. The Israeli government as a whole claimed it “stands with Brussels.” As a resident of Brussels, I refuse that solidarity." "The most fitting tribute to victims of violence is to tackle its root causes. That means fighting imperialism, bigotry and inequality. It means defending multiculturalism, a beautiful idea that Israel has rejected." (thanks Amir)
