A Slap In The Face of Civilization: Israel Marks Its Territory By Pissing On The Captive Palestinians

"Borders are basic Mammalian territorial imperatives. All mammals want a territory and they claim it by making excretions that make a topological outline as the territory they claim. That's why your dog pees on every tree when you take him for a walk, that's the way the dog is marking his territory. Chimpanzees mark their territory with excretions, too. The difference between human beings or domesticated primates and the other mammals is we mark our territory with ink excretions on paper: land titles, peace treaties, and so on. Every national border in the world marks a place where two gangs of domesticated primates fought until they were exhausted and then made a territorial mark. That's how national borders are created. We don't throw excretions at each other like the chimpanzees, we throw chemicals and bombs and so on, but it's basically the same Mammalian process. The only intelligent way to discuss politics is on all fours." - Robert Anton Wilson, from the documentary "Borders (1989)."
Israel's actions are a slap in the face of civilization. The Israeli government is lawless. The ceasefire is just a break in the action. They're not finished pissing on the Palestinians just yet. They still have more in the tank. And Egypt, under the control of the US-backed Muslim Brotherhood, doesn't care. They don't want a mass influx of Palestinians into their country so Morsi reached a treasonous deal with the U.S. and Israel to keep the Palestinians locked in their cage against their will with no solution in sight except war.
