NEW YORK JEWISH DOCTOR KICKED OFF JET BLUE FLIGHT FOR RANTING AT PALESTINIAN PASSENGER
The Jewish woman was having a loud cell phone conversation about the Jews charged with the murder of the Palestinian kid in retaliation for the murder of the Israeli kids. The Jew is alleged to have called the Palestinian a "murderer" and the Palestinian is said to have called the Jew a "Zionist pig"
I stopped reading and drifted off into a daydream that went something like this ...
The fight ends and they go back to their seats and a few minutes passes. Then the gods of motherhood reach down and both of them are surprised to see the other approaching down the aisle.
The Jewish woman says (in your own daydream you can chose who starts the conversation)
"OK I'm a Zionist pig and you're a murderer - Now that we've gotten that out of the way let's talk about our kids and their future. Someone gives up a seat and they sit down next to each other.When they finish showing each other pictures of kids and grandkids one of them says "You and I both know that this is only going to be solved by mothers working it out for the sake of their kids not by men with guns and bombs. The other nods. They talk for a long time. Someone nearby hears the conversation stop and turns to see them weeping uncontrollably and embracing.
The daydream didn't last long and I went on to finish the paper.
Lastly, I had some dealings with Tish James when she was an Assembly staffer. She's really smart and I think her heart's in the right place. The Public Advocate has limited power and almost no staff, but I think/hope she'll be something of a force in the right direction. And about her holding hands with the young homeless girl, what's so terrible about highlighting, though in a somewhat cheesy way, the plight of the homeless.
There's more talk around the country about poverty right now, owing, I believe, in no small part to DeBlasio. What will come out of it? It would be silly to be too exuberant, but it would be a real shame not to get on board for as far as we can go...
