[tweetmeme] After Israel stormed the aid convoy last week and after long-time White House correspondent Helen Thomas said she believed the Jews should get out of Palestine and go back to Poland and Germany, there have been many serious analyses and dissections of events (too many on this blog?) as well as some offensive spoofs. Fortunately, Stephen Colbert is there to lighten the situation with a great debate with himself as well as with Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren. The whole (unembeddable) video is worth watching for those who need a moral boost among the depressing events of the last few weeks. Here is the money quote:
I repudiate what Helen said. She’s a friend of mine, but I repudiate everything she said. ‘Go back to Poland, god back to Germany’.’ That’s ridiculous. Israel is for Israelis. If anything, Palestinians should go back from where they came from. [laughter applause] Do you agree? Do you agree, sir? It’s time to get them back to where ever that was.
