I hate to say it, but the right is at least partially, well, right on this one. Helen Thomas, aka C.M.C.F. (catcher mitt cunt face) said that the Jews should leave Palestine and go back to the warm, loving bosom of Germany and Poland, where her grandchildren's generation helped gas (amongst other things) 6 million Jews. The Palestinian people, who like the Israeli's, have a legitimate claim to the territory. Many sincere grievances. However, they also do as the Israelis and often act as their own worst enemy. Sure, they had nothing to do with the atrocities of WWII. The champion of the anti-Israel movement, the great president of Iran and champion of democracy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, frequently makes this point. However, the misguided obsession with the Palestinian cause for so many is subliminal antisemitism. There is no way around it.
I often hear, "I am not an anti-Semite, but...." This is the same as a white person saying "I don't have anything against black people, but..." "I don't have anything against Mexicans, but..." "I don't have anything against catcher mitt cunt faces but..."
Like so many things, the truth is in the but.
Lets be fair. Any objective individual that has studied the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must admit that there is a good deal of blame to go around. The Jews, Arabs, Americans, Brits, and others all hold a share of the blame here. By any objective standard, the Palestinians, like the Israelis, sometimes act like unconscionable barbarians. They are not always the victim. When you hide behind a group like Hamas, you are not a helpless victim, you are a party to your own destruction. The people of Palestine are not all innocent. The only lens that allows for such a delusional justification of this absurd paradigm (by those that claim to respect human rights and support toleration) is subliminal antisemitism (if not overt).
Why not focus more attention of the atrocities occurring in Sudan? What about the cause in Tibet? Or the persecuted minority of thinking people in the U.S.? These causes deserve attention, too. The parties involved are far more innocent then the Palestinians. And why not challenge the blockade of Gaza in Egypt? They don't trust Hamas, either.
And to the turd from a "human rights" group that claimed on XM's POTUS that the people on these flotilla's (whose core purpose I still fundamentally support) were acting as Dr. King did in the Southern U.S.--go fuck CMCF!
I saw more violence in the 10 second video released in the Israeli Government's propaganda piece of the siege Dr. King ever would have supported. Go read the Letter from a Birmingham Jail and shut the fuck up.
These anti-Semitic turds are turning attention away from what should be the biggest story for the left since the civil rights movement--the spill in the Gulf of Mexico. If there was ever a story where the left had the moral and intellectual high ground in every aspect of a story, it is this one. The need for less reliance on private sector solutions to large problems, the need for more government regulations, the environment, the need for alternative energy, etc... Its all here--and the left is all correct. But some can't help themselves. Instead of uniting behind this enormous issue, which is literally killing our planet in real time, these bastards are too controlled by their antisemitism that they must take attention away from what might be the biggest story of our lives (and the biggest for CMCF since the American Civil War) to defend the bomb throwers in Gaza. Ironically, they are fighting a fight that is helping the criminal regime in Iran which is sustained by oil money. And we come full circle.
The world loves oil and hates Jews.
The sad thing is I really liked Helen Thomas until yesterday. I haven't felt this betrayed by someone I have never met since OJ.
