Groucho Marxist (inactive) Middle East Problems (98* d) RE: Middle East Problems 18 Oct 00


I will not engage in any kind of argument with you over the right of Israel to exist; except to say that if your arguements were true, the same would apply, as someone already pointed out, to all of the European descendants in the Americas and Australia.

You rhetorically ask: "Why, why, why do some Jews consider that the Holocaust justifies them perpetrating evil to others?"

I am a child of Holocaust survivors and the grandson of Holocaust victims. Your rhetoric is highly offensive. I know of no Jews, NOT ONE, not in North America, and not in Israel, who thinks like that.

You refer to routine lynching, castrating, skull smashings, etc. by the Israelis against the Arabs. The only lynchings that have occurred are of Israelis by Palestinians. Even the Palestinians have not accused the Israelis of the things that you attribute to them.

The vast majority of Israelis want a just and lasting peace. Most accept the need for a Palestinian state.

When the kind of lies that you tell are repeated, finding that peace becomes all the harder.
