yakk: good link, thank you. I quite agree with Lerner. in fact, I think most Israelis (at least the thinking part of the population, and that's not a small part) would readily agree with what he writes.

but your referencing Lerner's article does not in any way justify the dishonest bullshit you wrote here earlier.

let me address your points one by one:

  • murder of civillians: where in the article you link to is it said that the 3 murdered people were civillians? free hint: don't call people who shoot at soldiers civillians, because they are not. seek better info before you speak.
  • inflammatory rhetoric: no, just propaganda. and believe you me, incredibly benign propaganda compared to what Arafat says to his people.
  • religious and political persecution: what? a cleric is heard saying inciting things. a cleric meets with a head of a known terrorist organisation. so the cleric is detained, questioned for 3 hours and freed. this is not political persecution, and not religious one either, sorry. it's not persecution at all -- Israel is at war, you know.

it's the little spins and exaggerations that are most damaging, more than blatant lies.

think before you speak.
