This is an unusually upbeat article about Israel and its place in the postmodern world order. Normally, we tend to think of Israel as a country under endless political and diplomatic siege with the Jew-Haters of the BDSM movement circling like vultures.

Israel and the Iroquois Nation came together this week — In Israel — at the Lacrosse World Championship. The Iroquois Nation team was subjected to enormous pressure to boycott, but they steadfastly refused to be swayed. The Iroquois, who invented Lacrosse in about 1100 CE, know a thing or two about indigenous peoples reclaiming their land. And they know a thing or two about Israel. Bravo to them.
