Several years ago two very distinguished American scholars wrote a book, The Israel Lobby.

The book made a very understated case that the Israel Lobby has far more power over the US government and media than is good for America or Israel, as it silences constructive critics who are Israel’s friends. The two scholars were demonized by the Israel Lobby as advocating the return of the Holocaust.

The Israel Lobby presented itself as just a poor little weak thing unable to stand up to all the Nazis assailing Israel. Meanwhile the US Congress was unanimously passing outrageous resolutions handed to it by the Israel Lobby.

A number of former US Senators and Representatives, including Cynthia McKinney, have publicly stated that they were removed from office by the Israel Lobby for criticizing actions of the Israeli government, such as the Israeli government’s attempt to sink the USS Liberty, in which a majority of the American crew were killed or injured.

Instead of defending the US Navy, the cowardly US government was so scared of Israel that the President of the United States and the Admiral conducting the inquiry, Senator John McCain’s father, rushed to the defense of Israel and covered up the incident.

The coverup has been so successful that few Americans today know that a vessel of the US Navy was decimated by an Israeli air and torpedo boat attack, and Washington did not even file a protest. Really! The US is a “superpower,” and the cowardly government cannot even stand up to Israel?

What do you think will happen to these pussies in Washington when they confront by their carelessness and unjustified arrogance the power of Russia and China?

Little wonder that after 15 years of pointless conflict the US has been defeated by a few thousand lightly armed warriors in Afghanistan, and the “Mission Accomplished” promouncement of the moron George W. Bush now requires intervention by the Russian Superpower to be accomplished.

Only Russia can bring the terrorism in the Middle East that the dolts in Washington created to an end. The low grade morons in Washington sponsor the terrorism in order to bleed the American taxpayer of money to pay the profits of the Military-Security Complex that President Eisenhower, a Five Starr General warned us about going on 7 decades ago.

The Americans are so incompetent that they should just depart the scene and go home and hide under their beds so scared they are of “terrorists,” largely an invention of neoconservative propaganda.

But it only takes a propaganda invention, a false flag event, to scare “powerful America” out of its wits.

I became an “anti-semite” when I observed that Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians resembled the Union Army’s treatment, under Sherman and Sheridan, of the American Plains Indians. Wholesale genocide.

ORDER IT NOW

An Israeli official wrote to me asking me why I criticized Israel for doing to the Palestinians what the United States government did to the native Americans. In other words, the Western World, and Israel that allegedly suffered the Holocaust, were not required to make any moral progress in one or two centuries. Whatever the Union war criminals did to the American Plains Indians in the 19th century is perfectly OK for Israel to to to Palestinians in the 21st century.

So much for those who believe in moral progress.

“Anti-semite” has lost its sting, because every justified criticism of the Zionist Israeli government is declared to be anti-semitism. The word is so overused and misapplied as to be useless. Indeed, to be declared “anti-semite” by the Israel Lobby is to be declared a person of high moral conscience.

Currently the Israel Lobby is at work destroying anyone associated with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which is an effort to sanction Israel for its genocide against Palestine. The popular musician, Roger Waters, is one of the few brave enough to support this movement.

Waters says that many of his colleagues, who protested the Viet Nam War and South Africa Apartheid are too “scared shitless of Israel” to protest what former US President Jimmy Carter called Israeli Apartheid.

Republicans, conservatives, and the Israel Lobby do not like Jimmy Carter because he speaks honestly, but that is why I respect him.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the Palestinians have had their country stolen. Now they, like native Indians in the US in the 19th century, have been confined to ghetto reservations. This is a simple fact. But anyone who states the fact is declared by the Israel Lobby to be an anti-semite who wants to kill all the Jews.

In other words, it is Zionist Israel that is committing genocide, but if a person mentions that fact that person is accused of wanting to do to the Jews what Israel is doing to the Palestinians.

Israel, thanks to the complete cowardice of the government of “the world’s only superpower” and the largely Israeli controlled US media and entertainment industry, has got away with this raw exercise of the power of propaganda and intimidation.

But not with Roger Waters.

Support Roger Waters, one of the acknowledged greatest rock musicians of this era, when he stands up for the Palestinians and opposes the monstrous crimes of Zionist Israel: http://mondoweiss.net/2016/05/musicians-destroyed-palestinians/

It is amazing to me how courage has disappeared from the entire Western world. Insouciant Americans have lost their liberty to disinformation and fear. Such a fearful and afraid people have no prospect of standing up to the Russian and Chinese people.

The Western World buried in propaganda and lies is now in the trash bin of history. It is no more.

  3. i see we’re still subscribing to the fantasy that because you were there before that’s YOUR land.

    I advocate soft ethnic cleansing. It worked in Europe at the end of WWII and it will work in the middle east. Apartheid is the basis of the Westphalian system. One set of people get that patch of land, the other get a separate patch, and everybody confines their activities to their own patch.

    I say get rid of the Israel lobby, give the West Bank and Gaza to Israel, force Jordan to become a Palestinian controlled state, deport all the Palestine Arabs to Jordan (which is part of Palestine anyway) warn both sides if anybody starts ANYTHING they’ll get the stick, and pull out of the Middle East for good.

    Who cares whether either side likes it? They both refuse to live together (yes there really are Arabs who want to murderate all the Israelis) and their inability to compromise causes perennial tension. So as part of a grand exist strategy, the US should impose a solution unilaterally.

    if England isn’t for the British, and Sweden isn’t for the Swedes, and Germany must be handed over to Muslims, then by what right does Israel remain Jewish?

    PCR,

    You say,

    “I became an “anti-semite” when I observed that Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians resembled the Union Army’s treatment, under Sherman and Sheridan, of the American Plains Indians. Wholesale genocide.”

    First of all, what is this Union Army policy to kill all the American Plains Indians? Even President Jackson, who was no Indian lover, never explicitly set out to kill every last Indian on American soil (he treated them harshly and unfairly, and killed many — but his explicit, formal policy was not ‘genocide’.) You are historically ignorant (and sound like a left-wing crazy) when you throw that word around carelessly.

    That brings us to Israel — what proof do you have that Israel has an official, government sanctioned policy to kill every last Palestinian Arab living in the West Bank, Gaza, or Israel proper (don’t forget, many Arabs are citizens of the State of Israel with close to full citizenship rights.) You have no evidence because it is not true. At best you can point to one or two incidents of what you would consider harsh treatment and what I would consider appropriate response to Palestinian terror and stubbornness (i.e. they refuse to recognize the State of Israel and quite frankly promote Jew-hatred.) You never want to confront this ugly reality of hate, violence and craziness. It is like a constant game with folks like you — point to something Israel does, totally out of context and claim it is harsh or unfair, without explaining the backstory or what the Palestinians did to provoke the Israeli action.

    “There is no doubt whatsoever that the Palestinians have had their country stolen.”

    Huh? What country is this? They never had a country to begin with and when offered one by the U.N., rejected the proposal and instead opted for war — a war they lost and continue to lose to tougher and smarter Jews.

  6. “So much for those who believe in moral progress.”

    Morals are behavioral adaptations which evolved to promote the survival of the group in which they occurred.

    The US and Israel seem to be doing pretty well because of their detestable morals.

    Before Dr. Roberts is done, he’ll be re-naming Israel ZISIS, the Zionist ISIS, worse, by far, than the ISIS caliphate.

    All that ISIS does is to slaughter unarmed opponents by the most gruesome means available. ZISIS is more horrible yet, targeting rocket launching sites in Gaza. Sherman’s march through Georgia? Sheridan’s slaughter of the Indians? Small change compared to Israel’s slaughter of millions of Arabs, Persians, Armenians and Turks. Yes, Armenians. The Armenian genocide blamed on the Turks? Another ruse that the Zionists have gotten away with.

    And not to forget: the NSDAP in pre-WW II Germany was a Zionist front responsible for the eventual genocide of millions of Germans, Slavs and the Romany people.

    And look at the latest AIPAC outrage, the way it’s pulled strings to get Tom Brady a four game suspension despite that fact that the Patriot’s owner, Robert Kraft, is Jewish. Can you spell incorrigible?

    I don’t wish to sound “snarky” but if what you wrote is actually what you believe you do have a bit of historical reading to catch up on.

    The US policy towards the Indians has been less than edifying since the days of General “the only good Indian is a dead Indian” Sherman. That’s the same kindly General who decimated much of the South and its peoples in an act of disgusting revenge on the part of Washington, DC.

    As for the Zionist atrocities of today, well, goodness, open your eyes. You could begin by reading the words of Israeli Jews who find appalling what the Israeli government is doing to its Christian and Muslim population. Or you could visit the website of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem for more background.

    Let me give an example . Suppose the residents of Vermont or Texas have got loosened from the central authority of Washington after it were overrun treacherously by the Tibetian and Chinese forces. Suppose the residents were promised of independence if they rose against Washington

    and they rose only to find out that they are now faced with surrendering their territories to the Tibetian civilians protected by the Chinese forces .

    That example summarizes the Israeli occupation.

    Suppose the Chinese told the Tibetians not to divulge their true intention and wait for opportune moment . The British told same to the Jews .
    Suppose the Tibetian leaders told the Texan that we would live side by side and wouldn’t displace any body at the begining when they were week, only to affirm in a decade that the plan was always to dispossess ,displace and occupy by forces if necessarry . That’s exactly what Zionist did ?

    Suppose that the Tibetians forseeing the possibilities of gains from future manufatured violences started stealing arms inserting spies procuring ingredient for making wars ,sabotaging deal between Chinese and Texan,and started provoking violence and all the time all along promising a great future between Tibetian and Texan changed the rules within China and in Texan.
    That’s what the Jews did in Britan and in Palestine. They continu do so in US and Israel.

    Texas or Vermont may never been a state but they were part of a bigger one . Same is true for Palestine. The demands of Arab was either a unified Arab from Iraq to border of Egypt under nationalistic secular constitution or independent statelets .

    By the way, how and why does Israel support dismemberment of Iraq and Syria and creation of new states when none of these Islamic or AlwItes or Kurdish States ever existed?
    By the way why did Israel lobby and support the dismemberment of Sudan when no S Sudan ever existed ?
    Why did Israel try to dismember Nigeria in 1960s ?

    ahh the “Christian” Zionist

    a rapture bunny, who wants to cuddle with the Lamb of Peace for a thousand years in a state of “rapture”, but first has to figure out how to slaughter enough of the last living blood relatives of Jesus Christ left in the holy land.

    how many slaughtered Palestinian children (Christian and otherwise) do you have to toss on the pyres before you can demand that He float back down and grant you your rapture Jeffrey?

    how much suffering and slaughter and white phosphorous has to be dropped on children before He will succumb to your demands- and get back down here while you’re still alive! so that you’ll be in time for the rapture?

    >>warning<<

    you so-called "Christian" Zionists are perhaps the most pathetic and vile scum on the face of the planet. And I can't help but feel sorry for the Christ and the Lamb of Peace as he must vomit with dry heaves at your demands that not enough Palestinians are being slaughtered so that Jews can move to Israel and YOU can get your rapture. (what is that anyways, some psycho notion of having a boner that lasts a thousand years, with Jesus gently rubbing it to keep the rapture cuming and cuming and cuming, for a thousand years straight?)

    Or is it more like just squinching your eyes, really, really tight, so that there are all kinds of little crinkles in your face, and you just look like you're soooo pious – and then it's like you can finally have a 'rapturous' bowel movement in peace, for once in your frustrated life?

    I imagine you people walking thought the occupied camps, and picking up exploded limbs of butchered Palestinian children

    and then pitching these limbs at the feet of the Christ, with little pieces of flesh and blood spattering his white robe, and saying 'here! here's another one! Now God damnit give me my rapture!!!'

    I guess you're hoping to be the man here eh Jeffrey? Only instead of that woman it'll be the Christ who you're in a state of rapture with, huh?

    how many men, women and children do you think have to be slaughtered before you'll be able to force the return Jeffrey?

    how many are you willing to see slaughtered in order to get your rapture?

    what proof do you have that Israel has an official, government sanctioned policy to kill every last Palestinian Arab living in the West Bank, Gaza, or Israel proper

    so they don’t have to kill “every last Palestinian Arab” eh? Ok, well that’s good news! But how many do we have to murder in order for Him to fl0at back down?!

    How many Jeffrey?

  11. Greg Bacon says: • Website

    Isn’t it a coincidence that around the same time Hollywood was producing all those John Wayne type Westerns, with the hero in the white hat riding to the rescue of those poor, Gawd fearing Christian settlers trying to bring civilization to those savages, Israeli settlers, waving their Torah, claimed to be bringing civilization to those Palestinian savages, who couldn’t even make the desert bloom or so we’re told.

    And both sides slaughtered the indigenous to the point of extinction. One side is now using the Pentagon to make the Iraqi, Libyan and Syrian desert bloom with the blood of millions of native Arabs.

    And why is telling or writing truth about Israel always slammed as being anti-Semitic?

  12. Jeffrey S. says: • Website

    “how many slaughtered Palestinian children (Christian and otherwise) do you have to toss on the pyres before you can demand that He float back down and grant you your rapture Jeffrey?”

    It is tragic when any child loses a life to war — why do Palestinians start those wars? Why do the terrorists in Gaza launch rockets at innocent civilians in Israel? How about pictures of those Jews killed and maimed by terrorist attacks in Israel?

    or

    http://mfa.gov.il/MFA/ForeignPolicy/Terrorism/Palestinian/Pages/Which%20Came%20First-%20Terrorism%20or%20Occupation%20-%20Major.aspx

    Your focus is relentlessly on the Palestinians who die without any context — as if Israel is just having fun killing Arabs. The Jews in Israel would like nothing more than to be left alone – they are suffering from violence and terror and want it to end. So why don’t the Palestinians and Arab states make peace?

  13. Rurik says:

    why do Palestinians start those wars?

    the Palestinians were minding their own business for hundreds of years. They are the direct relatives of Jesus Christ and were living on the land just as they always have for centuries. Until some Zionist Jewish terrorists started murdering them in their villages. Literally butchering them, bashing babies heads against concrete walls in a calculated attempt to terrorize these peaceable peoples from their villages and homes, whereupon the Jewish terrorists simply stole the homes and called them their own.

    Now we have these beyond idiotic so-called “Christians” saying the Jewish Zionists terrorists had every right to murder the Palestinians and steal their land because God says the land belongs to some Polish and Russian Jews, who have as much ancient ties to the land as I do to the moon. But not to worry! these “Christians’ are so f’n stupid, that all you have to do is get some lard-ass preacher to tell them that God wants the Jews to slaughter all the Christians and Muslims in the holy land so that Jews can steal it all for themselves, and then once the Jews have stolen all the land, then that’s going to force Jesus to float back down to earth and give these bloodthirsty rapture bunnies one thousand years of circle jerks with Jesus.

    I’m not making any of this up. These people really are this monumentally, beyond earth-shatteringly stupid.

    and even if they might imagine that Jesus might not relish the sight of slaughtered children, it doesn’t matter, because He’ll be forced to float back down. It isn’t up to Him. It’s up to them to force His hand by filling the streets of the holy land with the blood of innocents, or so they actually believe.

    they even tell outrageous lies about the victims of their demonic delusions by trying to blame this horrible and Biblically iniquitous injustice on the victims themselves, saying they started it.

    It’s all a rotten and filthy lie, but they don’t care. They live lies, and slanders and their hands are all stained with innocent blood, but they don’t care about any other that either. All they care about is their rapture, and getting it. And getting it soon, before it’s too late, and they die, and go straight down to fucking hell where they belong, because they’ve got the blood of tens of thousands of innocent souls on their greedy and covetous hands.

    And then these pathetic tools of the devil, who serve the Jews like demons serving Moloch, don’t even care that to these Jews that they worship as their living God; Jesus Christ’s fate for all eternity is to boil in a vat of excrement. But who cares! Their lard-ass preacher says that the Jews are chosen, and all must bow down to them, before lard-arse flies away in his private jet paid for by the Israeli government, while these dumber than dumb faithful send the scoundrel even more money for his beyond odious promises.

    All to the horror of the Lamb of Peace Himself, who taught love and kindness and compassion and truth. A message completely lost on these murderous minions of Satan.

    European tried your solution on the unwanted Jewish communities living among them but failed miserably during the last 20 centuries. Now the same unwanted Jews controlled the West. Someday Palestinian might accomplish the same.

    In November 2010, Gilad Atzmon spoke (video below) at the ‘Stuttgart Conference on Palestine’ held in Germany. Below are some of his statements on “Jewish mentality”.

    “We all agree about one state – which is the only ethical, universal and viable solution. However, the universalism is very foreign to Jewish culture.”

    “The world “Shalom” doesn’t mean “peace” – in Jewish culture it mean “security of the Jewish people”.

    “The “loving your neighbor” is quite foreign to Jewish culture”.

    “The political concept of Western is disastrous. Look at their actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

    “A few weeks ago a very brave Israeli came up with names of 200 Israeli war criminals in Gaza. Some Israeli media outlets blamed me for leaking that information.”

    “The Israel’s comparison with Nazi Germany is wrong because Israel claims to be a ‘democracy’ while Germany under Nazis was not. Israeli are worse than Nazis”.

    “Israel’s comparison with apartheid South Africa is wrong. South Africa never carried out the ethnic-cleansing of the Native Africans as Israelis are carrying-out against the Native Palestinians.”

    Your fictional diatribe is pure hasbara for those who support the terrorist state of Israel. Zionism is not Judaism…so being critical of Zionism which is a fabricated atheist driven ideology is not being anti-semitic. Furthermore, Zionism is not defined ANYWHERE in the Talmud, Torah, or Bible, but the sociopathic brethren of Fake Jewry claims that God gave the land to the Jews???….are you kidding me…The Big Lie!

    Where did God endorse a nation state for Zionists??? Israel has no legitimate claim to Palestine, and the Ashkenazi’s have no blood, or historical lineage with Abraham, his decedents, or the Hebrews. You, and people like you are nothing more than “snake oil” salesmen/thieves for terror, and mass murder….PERIOD.

    Rurik,

    I know I should bother, but I figure someone should at least attempt to reason with you. You say,

    “the Palestinians were minding their own business for hundreds of years. They are the direct relatives of Jesus Christ and were living on the land just as they always have for centuries. Until some Zionist Jewish terrorists started murdering them in their villages. Literally butchering them, bashing babies heads against concrete walls in a calculated attempt to terrorize these peaceable peoples from their villages and homes, whereupon the Jewish terrorists simply stole the homes and called them their own.”

    First, there is no evidence that the Palestinians are the “direct relatives of Jesus Christ” — there is no evidence the Jews living in Israel are either, but that shouldn’t matter one way or another. Next you list all sorts of lurid crimes committed by Zionists against Palestinians — no links or evidence presented. I can certainly imagine that some Palestinians suffered during the various wars and efforts to keep Israel safe from Palestinian terror — there have also been Israeli terrorists who have committed direct crimes against Palestinians. The difference is that Israel recognizes these crimes for what they are versus the Palestinians that make excuses for terror and promote anti-Semitism (I can provide lots of links if you are interested.)

    dqates,

    Apparently you don’t read your Bible much — otherwise you might be familiar with the land of Israel promised to the Jews. Now, you also claim that present-day Jews have no historic linkage to Abraham — you are certainly correct that the modern-day Ashkenazi seem to have their genetic origin in Europe as well as the Middle-East, so there has been some mixing:

    http://www.timesofisrael.com/ashkenazi-jews-descend-from-350-people-study-finds/

    Jeffrey,

    First, there is no evidence that the Palestinians are the “direct relatives of Jesus Christ”

    Modern genetics testing has demonstrated that modern-day Palestinians have a direct genetic trail back to the biblical Israelites.

    http://www.khazaria.com/genetics/abstracts-jews.html

    the people of Palestine, including the Arabs and Sephardic Jews are the descendants of the people who lived there some 2000 years ago. They look like Jesus would have looked. After 2000 years, their line would be distantly related, but related nonetheless. Certainly more so than white people from Eastern Europe.

    there is no evidence the Jews living in Israel are either, but that shouldn’t matter one way or another.

    but Jeffrey, that is one of the main (idiocies), eh,, reasons why the Zionists claim the right to steal the land. They say god gave it to them, apparently under some lunacy that god is a real estate agent of sorts. Have you ever heard of John Hagee?

    Next you list all sorts of lurid crimes committed by Zionists against Palestinians — no links or evidence presented

    really? You want links? Are you saying you really don’t know of these crimes and horrors?

    Start with Deir Yassin

    There is, however, no doubt that many sexual atrocities were committed by the attacking Jews. Many young schoolgirls were raped and later slaughtered. Old women were also molested. One story is current concerning a case in which a young girl was literally torn in two. Many infants were also butchered and killed. I also saw one old woman who gave her age as one hundred and four who had been severely beaten about the head with rifle butts. Women had bracelets torn from their arms and rings from their fingers and parts of some of the women’s ears were severed in order to remove earrings.[54]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deir_Yassin_massacre

    it was at villages like this that the Jewish terrorists decided to butcher and slaughter the indigenous Arabs to the point of terrorizing them in a calculated attempt to get them to flee en masse, and flee they did, out into the desert where over 750,000 of them hid out for their lives. And then once they were gone, the Jewish terrorists simply went in and claimed the land and homes and businesses for themselves.

    from the Wiki article

    Givat Shaul Bet was built on what had been Deir Yassin’s land, now considered part of Har Nof, an Orthodox area.[76

    there’s actually an avalanche of information regarding the horrors of the Nakba, if you had any inclination at all to check into it, and see for yourself the blood of innocents and atrocities that your beloved Israel was built upon.

    Jeffrey, I have read much of the Bible. Enough to know what the Lamb of Peace was all about. His message was one of love and kindness and compassion and peace. He advocated the truth as a path to the kingdom of Heaven.

    But what all those dispensationalist evangelical “Christian” Zionist$ are spouting is not the truth. But the Devils’ own lies. Murdering children in order to steal the house their ancestors had lived in for hundreds of generations is not Jesus Christ’s message. Not hardly.

    The Jews stealing the land and murdering the Palestinians are not the descendants of Abraham, and even if they were, it is not Christian to murder people and take their possessions and then claim in some kind of perverted abomination of God’s words that this is what God wants.

    No. That’s wrong.

    here’s a video that I recently posted of one of your brave IDF soldiers shooting Palestinian children for the fun of it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUibXSgILv0

    someone here tried to suggest that the video is a fake, but it’s real all right

    do you condone that? Is your position that these Palestinians are all terrorists anyways, and the brave IDF has to defend themselves, don’t they?

    have you seen the pictures of those terrorists the brave IDF had to defend themselves from recently?

    these terrorists were targeted and slaughtered

    because Israel has to be kept safe, huh?

    I suspect you might be a honorable person Jeffery, and simply so lied to by a one sided media that you are just another duped soul who has no idea what’s really going on over there, and who are the victims and who are the monsters, terrorizing and stealing and murdering, even children, when they’re not torturing them, as they’re well known for doing.

    Check into it, and get back with me. If you’re sincere, then perhaps there’s some we could learn from each other.

    God bless

    Yeah, well, from that day to this, the cowardly–and bought-and-paid-for!–U.S. Government hasn’t stood up to the Zionist entity over anything. The latter looks at the U.S. the way a dog looks at a lamppost–as something to piss on.

It denies and belittles the Holocaust and it is also preparing another Holocaust,” whined the war criminal.

    It’s the Netanyahu who attended Paris parade ‘uninvited’ in January 2015, in support of Rothschild-owned Charlie Hebdo magazine’s ‘Freedom of Press’ right to republish anti-Islam cartoons originally created by Danish Jew editor Flemming Rose in 2006.

    The 2nd International Holocaust Cartoon contest exhibition with 150 entries from 50 countries including France – with many entries deriding Zionist regime’s Middle East policies, were displayed for public view on Saturday in Tehran.

    The first NGO-sponsored Holocaust contest was held in 2006 in response to the publication of cartoons insulting the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in 2006 to test West’s so-called “freedom of press”.

    The Organized Jewry is well-known for its support for the publication of cartoons mocking Christian and Muslim religious beliefs – but always claim anti-Israel and anti-Holocaust mocking material as “hate speech”.

    In July 2011, Jewish groups condemned American academic and UNHRC envoy for Palestine, Richard Falk, over posting a cartoon blaming Israel for America’s anti-Qaddafi policy.

    Rurik,

    Thanks for your thoughtful reply to me.

    I’m afraid we’ll just have to agree to disagree — I still think you ignore context and are selective in the evidence you choose to highlight. Take the example you point to — Deir Yassin. You link to La Wik, which is not the best source for impartial, detailed information when it comes to controversial historical issues (for example, this source, also biased, tells a different story than you’ll get from Wikipedia: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/deir_yassin.html.) But even the entry you cite mentions the differing accounts of the battle (of course you quote the most lurid and by the article’s own account, difficult to substantiate), and more importantly, the condemnation from official Israeli government sources for any innocent lives taken. Once again we see Israel try to live up to ethical standards and the Palestinians and Arabs fail to return the favor — soon after Deir Yassin, in revenge, seventy four civilian Jews were murdered in Sheikh Jarrah (check it out on Wikipedia as the Hadassah medical convoy massacre.)

    This happens again and again when I study the historical record — Arab exaggeration and refusal to own up to their own aggression and ethical failures (let’s not even get into all their attacks on Jews prior to 1948) and while the Israelis aren’t perfect, I read the historical record as a people who have done remarkable things in their nation (economically, culturally, scientifically, etc.) and at the same time try to defend themselves with honor and a strong moral code.

    Obviously you disagree and every source I point you to will either be ignored or rationalized away. So I wish you well and I can only hope that someday the Palestinian people will desire peace and teach their children to love the Jews.

    Re: “i see we’re still subscribing to the fantasy that because you were there before that’s YOUR land.”

    Isn’t that the entire basis for Israels right to exist at all?

    Re: “I say get rid of the Israel lobby, give the West Bank and Gaza to Israel, force Jordan to become a Palestinian controlled state, deport all the Palestine Arabs to Jordan”

    It seems that your idea of compromise is to give the Israelis everything that they ask for, how is that even vaguely even-handed? If somebody were to propose the reverse (ie that all the Israelis were to be deported) you would probably start dribbling on about antisemtism.

    My point is no one has a ‘right to exist’. The distribution of control of land is based upon ad hoc historical power plays.

    I don’t really care whether the deal is fair or not. I mean, if we give Palestinians Jordan, they’ll be getting control over more land than an independent west back/gaza. But alternatively, we could deport all the Jews to the Russian Jewish oblast in the far east. I’m sure Russia would sign on. They have a ready receptacle for them and it would mean a huge influx technical capital.

    Really, I do not care about fairness to either party. I’m solely concerned in an exit strategy for the West that won’t trigger a regional conflict or genocidal slaughter.

  28. I’m no Holocaust denier!

    I don’t deny any of the Holocausts Israel is responsible for.
