ASSHOLES LIKE JEFF GOLDBERG OF THE ATLANTIC EPITOMIZE IT; HERE'S WHAT HE WROTE TODAY:
It is astonishing that what was once so small a movement now defines what it means to be a supporter of Israel. The official position of this blog (yes, we have official positions here) is that the settlements should be fought as if there was no such thing as anti-Zionism, and anti-Zionism should be fought as if there were no such thing as the settlements. This, I think, reflects the centrist position [HA!] . A centrist on the question of Israel believes that the settlements represent a corruption of Jewish ideals, but that Israel remains the physical manifestation of a righteous cause.JEWS LIVING IN THEIR ANCIENT HOMELAND CAN NEVER EVER BE A CORRUPTION PF JEWISH IDEALS. RATHER IT IS GOLDBERG WHO IS CORRUPT: WORSHIPPING AT THE ALTER OF THE NYTIMES, AND NOT TORAH.
BUT BEYOND THE JEWISHNESS ISSUE IS THIS: THE MIDDLE EAST WON'T BE AT PEACE WHEN THE SO-CALLED WEST BANK IS JUDENREIN, AND NEITHER WOULD THE WORLD.
ONLY LIBERAL IDIOTS THINK IT WOULD BE.
AND ANOTHER THING:
IT IS MORALLY REPREHENSIBLE AND TOTALLY HYPOCRITICAL FOR LIBERALS TO ACCEDE TO THE ARABS' DEMAND THAT A NEW PALESTINIAN STATE ON THE WEST BANK - LIKE GAZA - BE JUDENREIN/JEW-FREE -- ESPECIALLY SINCE ISRAEL IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN 15% ARAB!
THERE WILL BE NO PEACE UNTIL THE ARABS OF THE WEST BANK CAN LIVE IN PEACE WITH JEWS ON THE WEST BANK REGARDLESS OF WHAT NATION-STATE THEY LIVE IN.
