Subject: RE: BS: BDS of Israel 'Gathering Weight.'
"Anyone baffled by those references to historians by Jim and Greg"
Yup - that's what I said; an extremely long thread which you dominated with jingoism, invented a bunch of historians who didn't even say what you claim them to have said, and called word war one veterans liars because their experiences didn't tie up with your re-writing of history, topped off by an excellent television series on WW1 which left your case in shreds - "who could ask for anything more", as the song says.
Anyway - mustn't allow ourselves to be diverted.
Israel has a history of war atrocities, involvements in massacres, usage of heavy artillery and chemicals on impoverished farmers and besieged house-dwellers.
A peace treaty was set up - Israel immediately announced the continuation, eventually acceleration of "Israeli only" settlements on seized and disputed lands, sent troops into neighbouring countries, attempted to ethnically cleanse a nomadic community... and a whole host of recognisably hostile acts designed to wreck the peace conference unless it guarantees all their expansionist aims.
It is in the process of setting up an apartheid state and has been recognised as doing so by protesters from within and without Israel - the only reason the Israeli regime is not facing human rights abuses is the intervention of the U.S. with over 100 vetoes in the U.N.
last year an ex head of Israel's own security service deplored what Israel had become, visibly stopping himself describing it as a 'Nazi' state - five others more or less backed up his description of what was happening (see the documentary - The Gatekeepers)
Israel is a terrorist state with nuclear capability, so we can all sleep east because "it has God on its side" we are told.
Now let's hear it for gallant little Israel
And please do not try to turn this into another of our Tweedledum-Tweedledee exercises with thread-drift - my reference to your 'historians' applies to all your contributions nowadays which invariably end with your scurrying behind "experts" and "historians" when you run out of arguments, or, in Israel's case, "They said they didn't do it".
Now what were you saying about Israel being devoid of all sin....?
