Oh yeah. That there be the Israelis telegraphing their discomfort with the status quo. Pretty much the AIPAC bat signal.

That said, nothing in there is factually incorrect. Israel, when feeling cornered, gives no fucks. This is just a delicate reminder to those august 538 individuals beholden to their money that the world continues in its orbit regardless of where Rob Porter hangs his hat.

Suddenly,

    We Jews have a secret weapon in our struggle.... we have no place to go.

makes sense. Not a pretty visual. Twiddling my thumbs until December to see if Taglit is a good option after graduation, then.

Also, would you be willing to explain who 'august 538 individuals' references? Google and wikipedia aren't much help there.

The correct number would be 535, for 435 representatives and 100 senators. However, we have 538 members of the electoral college (DC has 3 electors but no representation).

Ahh, understood. Thanks for the breakdown. 👌
