Bradley Burston discovers a strange analogy:
In a piece on Irish4Palestine, a blogger wrote that Winehouse had quite a lot in common with Israel. While "she had a great voice and didn't kill people constantly, both suffered from the same affliction."
"Amy Winehouse, like so many others, is now dead and gone from over-indulgence, a mentality that says nothing can hurt me, I am powerful, and I am invincible." [Emphasis in the original]."
"Israel over indulges, it suffers terribly from over indulgence, it is a monster that is now utterly and totally out of control. It kills and murders at will, anywhere in the world," the piece continues.
Because Israelis "are never told 'no,' they are like spoilt brats who slap someone and then get away with it, so next time they punch them, and get away with it, but punching is no longer 'fun,' it's time to escalate, next time they shoot someone, just because they can. It's fun to be this powerful, almost like God."
