JK Rowling reveals her own dark side

The author of the Harry Potter series may oppose a boycott of Israel. Unfortunately, but perhaps unsurprisingly, she also opposes Israel's right to self-defense, and is undoubtably believing in the lie of a palestinian state too. One laughable statement she made was:
“If any effects are felt from the proposed boycott, it will be by ordinary Israelis, many of whom did not vote for Mr. Netanyahu,” she continued. “Those Israelis will be right to ask why cultural boycotts are not also being proposed against – to take random examples – North Korea and Zimbabwe, whose leaders are not generally considered paragons by the international community.”
But there were many more who voted for Likud, certainly more than voted for Labor, now calling themselves "Zionist Union", which I'd assume won't appeal to her. It doesn't take much to figure she said that deliberately, unwilling to recognize some facts about the prior election.

Here's some more about her nuttiness, how she let down all the potential fans who might want to offer their children Harry Potter before she slapped everybody in the face and mouthed off with the following:
"The Palestinian community has suffered untold injustice and brutality. I want to see the Israeli government held to account for that injustice and brutality. Boycotting Israel on every possible front has its allure. It satisfies the human urge to do something, anything, in the face of horrific human suffering.

What sits uncomfortably with me is that severing contact with Israel’s cultural and academic community means refusing to engage with some of the Israelis who are most pro-Palestinian, and most critical of Israel’s government."
This reeks of a position that sides with self-hating Israelis, and if that's whom Rowling sees fit to cater to, it's degrading. She may have been a member of the Tories in the past, but even in the UK, it's not surprising if a conservative could be just as awful as a liberal.

Rowling also tried to draw comparisons between Israel and the villains in her own books, and that only makes everything worse. Thanks to this, anybody who's a realist will now have to take her Potter books with a grain of salt. Man, she is such a joke.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
