His name was Charon. But outside his neighborhood everyone knew him as the filthy rat. Most of his neighbours thought he’d been a great soldier, slightly wacko, if you want, but inasmuch as he had dedicated his entire life to the compulsive thought of owning the land he had stolen (and he was fond of his role), he was known as a hero by his fellows in stealing. Women loved his macho look, and they used to put his photo on the fridge, since they didn’t know where else they could put it.
One day -they say- he retired. And he left for a long trip around the country, with the money he had earned by cutting enemy heads. Well, he was coming back from this trip and a few miles away to home, he suddenly stopped in a restaurant on the route. They say the place had been called “A helluva roast for the beast” since, for a few bucks, it was not only possible to taste the best roast of the country, but portions were known to be so abundant that they could have fed even a bunch of demons.
Our hero didn’t have the slightest idea of what was bound to happen. So, he took a seat, ate his meal, was poured plenty of wine, then he fell asleep. He woke up in the backyard, handcuffed, oiled, filled with tomato and stuff pushed into all his holes. Then, some strange people with horns made into the backyard to make his acquaintance.
Our hero was not so clever and at the sight of the horned people the smartest thing which came to his mind was to ask, “and the vegetables?” The waiters were all around him, they looked at each other, a kind of a smile on their face. One simply said – sorry, hon, you don’t understand, the vegetables were you. Now, it’s over.
Then, lights went definitely out. They say Charon is still there, in the backyard, some say that even the demons refused his bitter flesh. He stares at the wall in front of him, blank eyes, indefinitely. Seasons, and years, and centuries passing by without anybody’s shiver. Now and then, someone remembers to spit at his memory.

The overwhelming European sense of guilt, since nurtured by their actual misdeed of having been silent bystanders of the Nazi horrors, has been so far the counterbalance to the Israeli crimes. The “anti-Semitism” sword of Damocles has become therefore part of European lazyness and of its DNA. That’s it.
Walt and Mearsheimer described the Israel Lobby in the USA as “loosely organized groups working assiduously for Israel”, no talk of plot. And in fact, who needs a cabal, whereas you can do everything in sunlight? Specularly, who needs an anti-Semitic discourse to nail the Israeli leaderships and their unmindful people to their responsibilities?
To be clear, there’s no need of elaborating any further conspiracy theories, nor motive to expose the daily Israeli arrogance towards their neighbours as a worldwide plot, whereas the Jewish state keeps exploiting, by deception, a free pass to fully pursue any aggression. I stress, by deception, that does not necessarily imply any global conspiracy.
Notwithstanding the conspicuous Israeli exploitation of its closure has been sold as the fear for anti-Semite feelings, it gains otherwise its real origin from the convenient redrawing of a Jewish identity on other people’s soil, a fact that should have little to do with an obsolete racist ideal, if not for greed that easily (and generally) leads hatred towards the different and the weakest.
A discourse made for countering the poison of the antisemythic acting to its actual aim could be the primary antidote against the irresponsible general alignment to the Israeli policies in order to devaluate the credit card obtained on the Western shoulders, that then could hastily exhaust its supply before being lethal for the world as a whole. And I’m thinking of the rampant backbiting against Iran’s alleged nuclear attitude.
Provided, then, that in the long run, the Israeli rabid redraft won’t spread out of the new ghetto that was maliciously injected into the Palestinian land. The same in which they have voluntarily caged themselves together with the Arab sacrifical victim and with cheers from the whole bunch of the western hypocrites that form to date the blindest Israel Lobby. The latter a real conspiracy of fear and taboo.
