Boycott protein!

Humor from Jonathan Kay in the National Post:
Support Palestine by boycotting protein!
Jonathan Kay

For years, Canada's anti-Israel activists, church groups and unions have been urging us to boycott every Israeli product under the sun — from wines, to academics, to fruit, to high-tech goods, to films.

It is time to take the campaign to the next level.

This week, the Nobel Prize for chemistry was awarded to three scientists — including a woman named Ada Yonath.

Yonath is not only the first woman to win a chemistry Nobel since 1964, she also happens to be a citizen of the Zionist entity — which means her research is a subject of concern to all social-justice-loving activists.

It turns out that Yonath won her award for her research on ribosome, a key component of the cellular machinery that translates DNA sequences into protein chains — the exact sort of protein chains that form the basis of human life in Israeli soldiers and settlers. Much like American F-16s, these protein chains are essential to the Israeli war machine.

In other words, the Nobel Prize committee is essentially rubber-stamping Israeli genocide.

Ribosomes build proteins from genetic instructions transmitted by messenger strands of Ribonucleic acid — much like the Zionist lobby in Washington carries out the wishes of its Israeli paymasters.

Interestingly. ribosomes were first observed in the 1950s — just a few years after the creation of the state of Israel. Coincidence?

Oh and here's someone who isn't producing any protein strands: Muhammad al-Durrah. I guess Ms. Yonath's "humanitarian" research doesn't apply to Palestinian kids.

At this point, you are thinking "What can I do?" The answer lies inside you — inside every cell, in fact.

Ironically, many of those who claim to support the Palestinian cause go about their day to day life without thinking about how their continuous use of ribosomes serves to essentially validate Ms. Yonath's military research project.

Do you need all those trillions of proteins you're producing? Do you even know what they do?

Didn't think so.

Protein strands or social justice — which is it going to be?

I know what Muhammad al-Durrah would pick.
