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


Jim re Einstein: "...which makes him an Anti-Semite in your books."
Come on, Jim, you're way smarter than that over broad assertion. His was a specific, occasional criticism which no way devolves to the level of being anti-Semitic under any definition of that word. That claim makes you seem foolish.

The things you say about your family fighting fascism and nazism may be true, and God bless them for doing so, but I'm not sure what that has to do with this discussion, unless you think it gives you a pass to espouse your views and not be challenged.

"...ancient history John - get someone to read it to you.
"Knowing this, the Israeli people elected him Prime Minister."
If you read history, Jim, you would know that Begin was THE Prime Minister during the Lebanon War, and shortly afterward resigned following the death of his wife. So one more time--Begin was not at the camps, later to be elected PM; you ARE referring to Ariel Sharon. Right.

There has, further, been virtually no official, direct culpability found against Israel that stands impartial scrutiny. What blame that is assessed is generally indirect.
