I might join you - sometimes the sheer mendacity and heft of all the shite and doublespeak reduce me to exasperation. Which is when I really appreciate the clear sighted writing of the contributors on here. When I try writing anything I get about two paragraphs in and then want to swear and challenge ziofascists to a fight. On Jeb Bush bashes Iran talks as ‘foolish’ and hails Israeli settlements as ‘new apartment buildings in Jerusalem’ Exactly. Imagine a nuclear armed Germany in 1939 and the US telling UK/France etc they couldn't have nuclear capability. Sheesh, I wish I were clever enough to work out what Germany might have done. On In Israel, the mask is finally off I agree, I didn't care much for Stalin's slaughter and murder of millions but I liked his moustache and that made it ok. Similarly, Charles Manson had a really good taste in music. Call me old fashioned but I like my humans to be against genocide/ethnic cleansing/war crimes REGARDLESS of whether or not they might occasionally stumble over something ethical. Absolute horseshit. Yes, Johnny did slash the throat of a complete stranger but he has excellent manners. On Bill Maher justifies Netanyahu’s racism by saying U.S. has done much worse Maher Logic 101 Any crime is justified if at some point in history a worse crime has been committed. At some point in history somewhere in the world someone raped their own grandmother. Therefore Israel can do what the fuck it wants. On Bill Maher justifies Netanyahu’s racism by saying U.S. has done much worse Cockney rhyming slang # 32001 Bill Maher = Pile of shite On Bill Maher justifies Netanyahu’s racism by saying U.S. has done much worse Brilliant On Who can save Israel now? Every now and again I allow myself to be cajoled into thinking that the world is giving the Palestinians a fair crack of the whip. And then something like Netenyahu's "Arab" comment - and more chillingly, the complete lack of outrage in decent society it elicits - slams me right in the gonads. Can you imagine Merkel issuing a statement in a tight German Election that Jews are being bussed in to vote for the Liberals? Can you imagine the global shit storm and Zionist chest-beating that would evoke around the globe? F***ing staggering - we are in a very dark place. On Who can save Israel now? Does anyone really believe the pronouncements of Israeli politicians pro or anti 2ss? Are they even worth reporting? It ceased to be a realistic goal in Oslo. Every torturous twist and turn since then has led to an increase in Israel's real estate and a tightening of the noose around the Palestinian neck. In this respect Netenyahu is at least being truthful - he's saying it how it is. Even discussing this as a viable, live possibility is pandering to the Zionist agenda. It pushes the idea that it's a subject of debate and nuance. It isn't. It's not going to happen. Period. The issue needs to move on and reflect the actual situation in the OT, in short, how far will Israel go in its excision of the Palestinians from their homeland and what or who is going to stop them.
