Apparently Facebook is more accepting of Palestinian peoplehood than, oh, I don’t know, Newt Gingrich.
Obviously, this joke was too good to be missed, so I posted this very screenshot to Facebook earlier today. David (the Editor here) aptly pointed out that Facebook isn’t actually claiming that the Palestinians are a people, just that there do in fact exist Palestinian people. His analogy:
Like, you could post about unicorns and Facebook might agree that you were talking about them without making any sort of claim about their actual existence.
To which I replied:
Careful, I see an Electronic Intifada headline right there: “Jewish Media Mogul Compares Palestinian People to Unicorns.”
This, of course, was just begging to be turned into a blog post. So here we are!
