Making up a people to make up a county?
Sometimes I get behind in my reading. This absolutely stunning opinion piece, written by humorist Larry Miller nearly 2 years ago, was called to my attention on a Usenet news group. (Yes, I still do NNTP, despite the crappy signal-to-noise ratio. Occasionally something useful floats to the top.)
You can argue about how long the concept of “Palestinian” has existed, but you can’t argue with his take about “What if the situation was reversed?”. Interesting reading.
