American-Jewish young man is being arrested in Jerusalem

 

It is fascinating  to look at the symbolism and fetishism that is attached to the Jewish political discourse.  While the Israeli settlers in the video above wave their blue and white flags and seem to march in total uniformity, the young single dissident American Jew, is also subject to symbolism. Though he says the right things, he, for some reason,  covers himself with identifiers. He put a skullcap on to prove he belongs to the Jews. The Scarf is there to note the solidarity with the Palestinians. He holds the American passport because he is also talking on behalf of the Americans.

I personally think, that if Jews want to oppose Israel, Zionism and Jewish Exceptionalism, they better drift away from Jewish fetishism and act ordinarily.
