Frankham BS: Anti-Semitism & The Left (269* d) RE: BS: Anti-Semitism & The Left 13 Mar 04


Again, the idea that there is one good side and one bad side is naive.
Of course there are human rights abuses on both sides. The Israelis need to ask the question, however, why would an individual strap
explosives on his/her body and detonate it in a public place? What has lead to this madness? The Palestinians have to ask themselves
at what point will they tolerate Jewish religious practices and
depart from the extremist Hamas-style reactionary groups?

When will the bulldozing of innocent people's homes stop and when
will the rock throwing and suicide bombings as well?

It's simply ridiculous to assign to either side a completely high moral ground for their actions.

America in it's present condition is unable to broker a deal as mediator. Bush's ties to apocalyptic religious bias regarding Israel disqualifies him in every way. The UN is the only hope and in spite
of the John Darby approach to the "Left Behind" novels, a world
government is not such a bad idea. It would curb the conceits and arrogance of the Bushites and the Radical Religious Right.

I'm still for Chomsky's solution.

Frank
