Alright. Can’t say this is coming as a surprise but.
Although I truly didn’t stop here to joust:
“the implication of your introduction to our site is that we gather together to hate under the banner of caring about human rights.”
I don’t believe such thing is/was implied. But clearly, it is now being inferred that it is/was.
“i’m just curious, under these circumstances, why you’d believe any response one might offer?”
Some questions are hard, not designed to make friends; you know before asking them that they won’t be liked by the questioned. Guess I was uninterested in pretending that I was so innocent as to believe that my “butting in” on this platform with my question about BDS was going to win me a popular contest. Am still curious, though.
““Push them into the sea”? Heavens, no. Why they can do whatever they want, go, or stay. Nobody could dissuade the Zionist from deciding they had the strength to take Palestine, and I doubt anybody will be able to make them stay once they are done.”
“Once they are done” doing what?
What’s there to say about the above? Nasty? Lamentable? t’s hard to decide whether such narcissistic cynicism in response to what is after all a very serious issue – Well, millions of people future lives and well-being is at stake, whichever side of whatever fence or BSD one is on – is sad or nauseating. But here it is. Proud point scoring before coherent argument. In what place is it that folks live so happily and safe that they are so full of certainties and contempt about others? Which corner of the planet do they come from that throughout history the land they sit, work, love and hate on never belonged to anyone else but them?
“” Like-minded folks have always liked to gather together, and to hate Israel””
What exactly is the point of misquoting? Because it’s painless to paste, and in the name of optimism, here is the full quote again, which goes on past the word ‘Israel’, as may be noticed this time round: “Like-minded folks have always liked to gather together, and to hate Israel is, I guess, a legitimate excercise, not unlike hating Cuba, China or, say, Hungary, Iran or Russia.”
Sorry again for butting in. Will look for answer elsewhere.
