More Zionist claptrap from the Guardian:
"I'm a historian... I grew up in a small industrial suburb of Haifa, in Israel. As far back as I can remember I was interested in big questions. Who are we? What are we doing here?"
Thus spake Yuval Noah Harari in Yuval Noah Harari: 'We are quickly acquiring powers that were always thought to be divine' (Tim Adams, 27/8/16)
Come on, Yuval, it's not rocket science:
Who are we?
'We' are Israeli Jews. We came to Palestine from Europe, under British protection, colonised the place, trained and armed for the inevitable showdown with Palestine's indigenous Arab population, drove them OUT in '48, and called the place Israel.
What are we doing here?
Keeping the '48 Palestinians OUT.
Keeping the so-called Israeli Arabs DOWN.
Occupying the West Bank Palestinians.
Blockading those in the Gaza Strip.
"Just as the 19th century created the working class, the coming century will create the useless class. Billions of people are likely to have no military or economic function." (ibid)
Military or economic function?
Very very interesting word order there, Yuval.
PS: The Guardian has given Harari yet another thumbs-up with Forget ideology, liberal democracy's newest threats come from technology & bioscience (John Naughton, 28/8/16). Enough already!
