Kristof: US should stop biting tongue on Israel

Saturday March 17, 2007

Whether they have "learned to muzzle themselves" or they "just don't get it," US politicians should stop biting their tongues when it comes to Israel, New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof argues in Sunday's paper.

"Democrats are railing at just about everything President Bush does, with one prominent exception: Bush's crushing embrace of Israel," Kristof writes.

And since "[t]here is no serious political debate among either Democrats or Republicans about our policy toward Israelis and Palestinians," Kristof believes, the "silence harms America, Middle East peace prospects and Israel itself."


This comment came into the link:

Quote:
I agree with Kristoff. We condone horrors perpetrated by Israel while we rail against the retaliation of the Palistinians. We need an honest debate in this country. As long as politicians are beholden to Israeli fundng for their campaigns, that won't happen. It would really be refreshing to hear a politician talk sensibly about the Middle East conflict without being afraid of hearing his/her name being linked to antisemitism... Nazis.. and the like. I was so happy that the Jewish people had a country... I didn't think they'd treat other peoples the way they were treated in Germnay. There is a great lesson in Orwell's "Animal Farm" where the liberators turned into the oppressors when they achieved power.

What do you think of Obadiah Shoher's views on the Middle East conflict? One can argue, of course, that Shoher is ultra-right, but his followers are far from being a marginal group. Also, he rejects Jewish moralistic reasoning - that's alone is highly unusual for the Israeli right. And he is very influential here in Israel. So what do you think? uh, here's the site in question: Middle East conflict

The world has attempted to get rid of J*ws before. There are interesting arguments that revenge of the Je*s is being orchestrated.

The worlds citizenry is powerless if it can not even make an observation without having that liquid graphite anti-sem*te card being yanked. The card that destroys reputations and careers.


On another note, is *ockefeller *ewish? I have read both arguments...more than once I think.
