Fake Animanga Confessions Khanüquah Edition
This is, by far, what we feel was the most offensive confession we ever wrote. How it only has 7 notes and how it did not start an entire conversation with a large mass of social justice bloggers can only be held responsible to tumblr’s belief that those of the Jewish faith are automatically more privileged than others.
For those of you who do not understand, the joke is that the Mobile Fighter from Neo Turkey, the Minaret Gundam (Called the Scimitar Gundam in the American Localization), and its pilot, Saette Gyuzelle, has the appearance/affectation of a stereotypical Palestinian. They make no reference of any other Middle Eastern country in the series other than the barely-there SCUD Gundam from Neo Iraq.
Not only do we understand and empathize with how fantastically offensive both names are toward their countries, cultures, and people, but, since we have senses of humor, we find it incredibly hilarious. It also did set the question in our mind. Does the mere appearance of the Minaret Gundam imply a victory in the Israel/Palestine conflict? The question is an obvious “who cares” since it is the same series that has the statue of liberty cannon in it.
