I didn’t have anything new to
make fun of hate write about today, so I was looking through other blogs. Here’s a good one, but I already read it. Here’s another good one, but I already read it too here– wait, there’s something new on that one…A link here. Ok, what have we got? Some holiday called Norwuz…being nice to foreigners…”Eid-eh Shoma Mobarak”…Hey, I could say that to someone foreign and have an interesting new friend…Nah, I’d just avoid them. Throw that information out of my head…Comments: Tesyaa says, “Mobarak is a cognate of the Hebrew mevorach (blessed), similar to baruch”. Stfu tesyaa, saying words like “cognate”. Making me feel dumb…Nobody cares…
Fine, I do. What the heck is that language and how do you know so damn much about every single damn thing? Click on the link to Norwuz and be just as smart as her.
Oh, it’s Persian…What was that phrase again? “Eid-eh Shoma Mobarak”– imagining Iranian lady at the cleaners saying it- yeah, that’s super Persian. Scrinching up my mouth. “Ei-deh”. Definitely. I could pull off being Iranian. Anything else in the Wikipedia article? “Nowrūz was officially registered on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.” UNESCO has a list of intangible things too? It must be pages long. You think they have anything Jewish?
Hmm, not that long. Listed by countries. Israel..Israel…no, India, Iraq, Italy… hmm. Probably because it hasn’t been a country for so long, so they can’t tie anything in the land to the country…wait, lemme see something…’Palestinian Territories’. What. The fuck. Let me see…Contents…Controversy…1, 2, 3, Israel…
“Israel was admitted to UNESCO in 1949, one year after its creation. In 1974, UNESCO stripped Israel of its membership on the grounds of alleged damage being done by Israel’s archaeological excavations on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. UNESCO defended this decision with two statements in 1974 and 1975, but renewed Israel’s membership in 1977, after the United States threatened to withhold $40 million of funding from the organization.
In 2010, Israel designated the Tomb of the Patriarchs, Hebron and Rachel’s Tomb, Bethlehem as National Heritage Sites and announced restoration work, prompting criticism from the United States and protests from Palestinians. In October 2010, UNESCO’s Executive Board voted to declare the sites as “al-Haram al-Ibrahimi/Tomb of the Patriarchs” and “Bilal bin Rabah Mosque/Rachel’s Tomb” and stated that they were “an integral part of the occupied Palestinian Territories” and any unilateral Israeli action was a violation of international law….”
Fuckin hell. Fuckin UNESCO. Just pissed on every cool place on Earth…Fuckin Shaolin Temple. Now where am I going to travel to when I make tons of money sometime later doing…something…vague, but…awesome.
