Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Y'all thought I was just kidding

... with my whole apartheid, racist wall schtick, didn't you?

Sadly, I wasn't.

A Palestinian Muslim worshipper on his way to Jerusalem's Al Aqsa Mosque walks past graffiti on Israel's separation barrier at a checkpoint in the West Bank town of Bethlehem, Friday, Oct. 20, 2006. Thousands of Palestinian women, children and middle-aged men surged through the main Israeli crossing from the West Bank into Jerusalem to worship at a major Islamic shrine on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. Men under 45, deemed a potential security risk by Israel, were barred from Jerusalem, but hundreds tried to get in anyhow, citing a religious obligation to worship at Al Aqsa during Ramadan. [Ed.: Notice that there is no such obligation, but let's not let that interfere with Kevin's little propagandistic piece of garbage.] (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)


The top photograph will show up in newspapers around the world. But does it reflect reality? Let's look a little bit closer:

Oof, is that the end of the wall that I see? Real "racist" there, ain't it?
