"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

ERASE

ERASE  ME?

abolish me

demolish me

liquidate me

 

Euphemisms for my nullification

eradication

burning at the stake

 

Publishing giant Harper Collins began 2015

with an apology   Last year they sold maps of the

Mid-East sans Israel  The company originally insisted

that: Erasing Israel was necessary  (sound familiar)

since displaying the reality of Israel’s existence would

be highly offensive to some of their customers

Even walking with a kippa on is not too secure says David Wolfshein

a young Jewish activist in Budapest

 

All the more astonishing is the case of Bess Myerson (1924-2015)

thought her name wreaked of Jew    Go know she kept her name   Bess said:

Whatever was left of myself in this game, I had to keep. I knew I had to keep

my name.

 

On the tour there were:  NO JEWS  signs  in many cities (T.O: No Jews Dogs or

Negroes)  Bravely Bess spoke on the Anti-Defamation League circuit   Her speech

entitled: You Can’t Be Beautiful And Hate   It is also true that you cannot hate and

be beautiful     Think Adolph

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

John Lennon    Imagine
