John on the Sunset Coast BS: Small hope for Israel/Palestine (2685* d) RE: BS: Small hope for Israel/Palestine 30 Jul 14

"Einstein made such a comparison when the butcher of Deir Yassin, Menachem Begin, was invited to The United States.
Begin, of course, went on to facilitate the Sabra Shatila Massacre - he was rewarded by the people of Israel by being elected prime Minister.
Was Einstein an Anti- Semite?
The first person I ever heard to refer to the Israelis as Fascists was a Jewish girlfriend - her mother pointedly showed me the number tattooed on the inside of her forearm a little before she agreed with her daughter.
Was[sic] Mrs S and her daughter Anti Semites?"

Many times in various Israel/Palestine threads over the years, you and others have made the charge, by questioning,innuendo, that Einstein was an anti-Semite because he criticized and warned against Menachem Begin and the Irgun. Well, Einstein was known to be a strong supporter for creation of the Israeli state, so much so that he was asked to become its first president. You over-reach with that question. Re-read the documents, links to which I last posted on The Caliphate thread; they are avail as posted en toto by others on other threads.

You are wrong, of course, about Begin facilitating Sabra/Shatilla. You are thinking of circumstantial linkage of later Prime Minister Sharon, I'm sure.

Finally,you personal anecdote about Mrs S and her daughter is unverifiable to the rest of us,and so cannot be answered by us.
