Whenever Any Form of Government Becomes Destructive To These Ends,
It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,
And To Institute New Government

Mark Waid hinted contempt for Israel a few months ago

Back in March/April, the cartoonist Steve Murray (Chip Zdarsky) took a vacation to Israel, and while tweeting about it, comics writer Mark Waid made some rather snide comments, such as:

Even more eyebrow raising, however, was the following:

Something pretty fishy about his putting Israel in quotation marks. Was Waid implying he doesn't recognize the validity of Israel? Because if that's what he was doing, he soaked up his reputation a bit more. Zdarksy didn't even seem to try and tell him he was running the gauntlet of embarrassing them, one more sad screw up.

The managers of the store he visited seemed to realize Waid was stooping pretty low, so they said:

Waid may have finally quit his galling little act after this, but signs still remain he's got a viewpoint that's very regrettable. And if that's so, he's only added another head-shaker to his past attitude of the 21st century.
