As silly an article as any I’ve seen here on Mondoweiss… and that’s pretty silly. To take just two idiotic statements:
1) “Israeli soldiers ‘summarily executing prisoners and evacuating Arab villages in a manner that one fighter likened to the Nazis’ treatment of European Jews.” Apparently our young writer is unfamiliar with the concept of war. Executing prisoners is something that happens routinely in virtually ANY war… even we Americans did it in WW II… it’s a battlefield necessity, unfortunately… and completely unremarkable except to the Drama Queens of the left.
Then, this bilge:
2) “Indeed, every year since 1967 Israel has had the choice of whether to seek to reverse the occupation and seek security through building ties to Palestinians rather than by extending their oppressive occupation, and it has consistently chosen the latter.” Truly the most moronic statement possible from a member of the human species, no? In 2005, as everyone knows, Israel gave Gaza to the Pals, lock, stock and barrel, in a move meant EXACTLY “to reverse the occupation and seek security through building ties”. Didn’t work, did it? The Hamas animals began firing rockets that same year, forcing Israel’s hand to create a blockade.
Mr. Shalom is the very caricature of a self-hating Jew… in this case, with walnuts for brains as well.
