Orson Scott Card, a favorite author of mine, write a regular serious opinion article for the Rhinoceros Times in North Carolina. In his latest article he discusses the evil ideas which have promoted the idea that the Palestinians are an aggrieved party at the hands of Israel. I’m not personally aware of either many of the specifics of the creation of the State of Israel nor of the nature of the Palestinian argument, but Card catalogs the issues, the lies, and the truth clearly.
It is truly evil to tell lies with the purpose of destroying peoples lives, and lies have been told and believed. Even in the construct of a novel, albeit fictional, frameworks or backgrounds expressed or assumed as truth can cause shifts in thought which bring sympathies to those who do not deserve sympathy, and care for those whose only care is the death of their enemy.
