Supporters of Israel have perpetuated a myth that I always believed true: The Arabs of Transjordan left the area in preparation for an invasion by the militaries of surrounding nations. Listen to this interview of Henry Siegman, conducted last week by Amy Goodman and Nermeen Shaikh on Democracy Now:
I’ve typed up a transcript:
to locate the complete Democracy Now episode within which you may hear more of this interview.
Ben Gurion was apparently a scumbag. Gurion’s leadership was much closer to that of the Nazi SS than anything that one might call righteous. In fact, I would describe Hamas as more honorable. DISGUSTING! Throughout my life, the generation of my parents (now in their 70s) repeated the whitewashed lies that are no more accurate about Israel than the lies repeated by Holocaust deniers. The only difference is magnitude.
If Hamas blows up the airport named after Ben Gurion (which they’re threatening to do), I’m okay with it. In fact, if I can dig up some dynamite, I’ll send Hamas a few sticks that they can add to their explosives pile, or they may weave my gift into a fashionable Dynamite Belt for use on a Tel Aviv bus! (I hear that summertime winter coats are in again, in Tel Aviv!)
Congratulations to Israel! It seems that they captured one of the killers of the three hitchhiking Israeli stolen-land (oops, I mean “settlement land”) dwellers, and guess what? He’s a top level Hamas militant!
So, does associating “Hamas” with the alleged killer justify the slaughter of two-thousand Palestinians (oops, I mean “Transjordanians”)? Did Israel really need to launch guided missile after guided missile after guided missile in response to useless rockets, launched by Hamas “militants?”
I THINK NOT!
NOT IN MY NAME, and NOT USING MY NATION’S TECHNOLOGY!!!!! It’s enough of Israel’s regional bombasticism!
I support BDS and I support an ARMS EMBARGO against Israel, a nation that lost its way twenty years ago and never found its way back! It’s time to send Israel a message: cut the crap, or DIE!
It’s about time. Israel has been misbehaving for years, and please, don’t tell me about the Palestinians (uh, I mean Transjordanians) and their tunnels (which remind me of Jewish resistance tunnels, in Nazi-occupied Warsaw). Transjordanian tunnels have amounted to nothing in the face of Israeli aggression which has killed two-thousand Transjordanian people using American-made guided missiles while Israelis have been protected by a so-called “iron dome,” also made in America.
Yes, it is time to cut off Israeli Jews. They are not at all like me. Israeli Jews have brought to the Middle East a sickness of brutality from their homelands, particularly Russia. They’ve become the Pogrom killers and the Nazi death machine that they so loudly criticize.
CUT OFF THE ISRAELIS AT THE KNEES, AND LET THEM FIGHT ON THE SAME LEVEL AS THE PALESTINIANS (OOPS, I MEAN “TRANSJORDANIANS”)!!!
It’s people like Benjamin Netanyahu who invite and insight anger and hate toward Jews around the world. He is a liability and should be liquidated from the world’s balance sheet.
Thanks to Kugel™ Translate (IDF® Edition), Israeli precision missiles and bombs are able to discern terrorist hideouts from civilian shelters and schools and KILL THE ARAB VERMIN IN THEIR BURROUGHS!
This incident is the latest DISASTER to hurt my heart. As Jewish people, we were subjected to this very sort of random murder. HOW can we Jewish people do the bidding of the likes of HITLER, so many decades since the great industrial Shoah came to an end? This truly is the work of the Devil, carried out by a people banished by God from the ancient grounds of Israel. To gain our return to this land, we have embraced Satan. I can conjure no other explanation for this obscene filth.
What’s going on in Gaza is DISGUSTING. I am ashamed.
