Why I Canít Forgive The Jews
Coach is Right ^ | 8/2/14 | Kevin O'Neil

Posted on 08/02/2014 10:08:35 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

I make no apology for this title. The Jews have much to answer for, especially the Jews of Israel – and there’s no letting up.

I write from England, this precious stone set in the silver sea, where our forefathers were nourished on the blessed freedoms of a robust paganism.

We relished our ever-inventive superstitions and gloried in unbridled passion. We made our choice between 14 gods, worshipped devils, and were in lifelong bondage to an inexorable fate known sinisterly as Wyrd. Standards there were, agreeably low.

Sure, hopeless ruffians were we, shackled to a changeless decree of the gods, but we felt mostly good about our brute lives and ourselves. We were all in the same boat, no better and no worse than the next bloke.

However, like the distant rumblings of an approaching rainstorm, the Jewish Messiah’s teachings had reached our shores in the 1st century, and their voice was growing louder. The Jewish Messiah and the Jewish Bible would become our nemesis and break open our little world.

What followed is well documented and one may Google for the relevant facts, but, for us, it meant that we could no longer enjoy the life of unbridled paganism. The bar of morality had been raised. It was a rude awakening; our stone of shelter was overturned.    Now I am reminded of a friend back in the 70′s, who was employed for a few days in a factory that manufactured long, electro-plated metal rods. Turning out nearly 300 of these things every day, he was approached by the Foreman.

“Look ‘ere, son you’re working too ‘ard. The rest never do more’n 250 and you’re makin’ ‘em look bad. Before we know it, everybody will be expected to do 300. Now, toe the line...

Okay article but will be misunderstood by many to the detriment of Israel. Best to avoid being cute, Coach.

Last two paragraphs are what is pertinent.
Col. (Richard) Kemp, a British officer who served in all the major conflicts between 1977-2006, said of the Israelis, “Based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: during operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in the combat zones than any other army in the history of warfare.”

The Jews are again leading the way to higher ground, making us uncomfortable with our double standards and our odious hypocrisy.
I guess Coach is trying to lure/bait the lefty antisemites into reading?

Good article. The title is intriguing as intended, and caused me to read the article which sets up and destroys the usual knee-jerk anti-Israel lines.

The first sentence is all that makes sense to me. The rest is garbled.

The Jews have much to answer for, especially the Jews of Israel – and there’s no letting up.

If I remember right it was England that started the carpet bombing of Europe. Does Dresden come to mind. Did England give up when Hitler attacked with rockets. NO, they destroyed many cities. Most of Gaza is intact. Israel is going after tunnels and rockets not civilians like England did.

“Yes, I am a Jew, and when the ancestors of the Right Honorable gentleman were brutal savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon”

Benjamin Disraeli

“If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvellous fight in the world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”

Mark Twain

It is not possible to misunderstand this article, if you have so much as a rudimentary grasp of English. My Gosh. Of course, you do have to actually read it don't you.

Anyone who reads this and thinks it is a slam at Israel is beyond redemption anyhow.

It is EXTREMELY sarcastic — I agree with others that this type of writing is for the very few (think Mark Steyn) and the author should stick with his normal form of pointing out the many, many hypocrisies and pointing at the antics of the left.

You can start with this paragraph and from there the rest starts to make more sense where he is going.

“Those vexatious Jews have pride and dignity! They make the rest of us feel bad whilst the Arabs are enough to make any of us feel good about ourselves.”

Coach, if you are reading this, don’t try this format again.

“... during operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in the combat zones than any other army in the history of warfare.”

Which is why the Jews will see some ultimate threat brought to their very threshold...and they will do what they might have done decades ago.

Just pointing out the hypocaust of accusing Israel of not slowing down attacks on terrorists while going out of their way to avoid civilians when it was England that destroyed whole cities not trying to avoid civilian centers.

Some archaic styles are not familiar to the general public. The first paragraph is in regular english. The style changes to some sort of garble after that. If the article is as bad as the excerpt it is not worth my time trying to decipher the words to try to get to the authors meaning. It is kinda like trying to understand a drunk.

You seem to not be aware of what the neo-Nazis are doing with respect to Dresden, claiming deaths up to half a million in the Allied bombings of 1945, when the actual figures are perhaps between 18,000 and 25,000, if that. And what of the Nazis bombing Allied cities indiscriminately, especially in Britain?

First, the original author is a Britisher. By his very national history, he has no clear identification with the word, “Freedom”.

Second, the early British history of Jewry was not a pretty one. They did whatever their king decreed to do to the Jews, since ‘they crucified Christ’.

Third, the author is not aware, that it was another Britisher, named Ben-Gurion, who had the dream of the nation of Israel being a reality.

Lastly, the original author’s attempts to make the case for ‘the jewish bible and the jewish god’, while bemoaning the loss of the British pagan roots, missed the target. Britain was Christianized, not ‘Judaicized’, with the Christian believers in power, turning pagan sacred sites into christian points of holiness, not Jewish synagogues. His references to ‘the jewish god’ fall short, since Christianity is formed around the second person of The Trinity, not Y’h’j’w of the Ta’anach, or Torah.

I don't think there were many military targets in Dresden. My point was really that the Israeli army is showing restraint unlike carpet bombing like used in Europe, Japan and even Viet Nam. Dresden may not be the best example of carpet bombing though.

Good commentary.

This captures the essence of what the Jews mean by saying “Chosen People”. Jews are chosen by God to be a light, an example, to the world, but without any thoughts of superiority or exclusivity. There are other peoples in the world like that, too. For example, the Tibetan Buddhists.

The author makes some great points, to me anyway, that of all of humanity, Christian or otherwise, the Jews of Israel are showing us all what "Love your neighbor" looks like, even neighbors who have sworn and attempted to kill them time and again!

As someone who struggles with this concept from time to time and appreciates the differences between words and actions, I can't help but be impressed, even if my own efforts make me look bad by comparison.

...whilst the Arabs are enough to make any of us feel good about ourselves.

Amen.

I don't think there were many military targets in Dresden.

One of the raids on Dresden by the 8th Air Force hit the rail yards. The yards were packed with trains. It was one of the most precise strikes of the war. The rail yards looked like a lunar landscape.

The trains were full of refugees. Thousands of fleeing civilians died.

From 25,000 feet it is not possible to tell if trains are full of munitions, soldiers or civilians. If I had squeezed the pickle on one of those B-17G bombers, I would have no regrets. Such is war.

Actually, Goebbels, a paleo-Nazi, originally inflated the Dresden fatality totals, by about a factor of ten. (Most of the fatalities were due to poorly improvised air raid shelters, btw.) The Soviets found that the Nazi lie served their purposes, so they perpetuated it.

Goebbels merely took the original Dresden police reports and multiplied by ten. After the fall of East Germany, the German government commissioned a study, which revealed the deception, and attributed the still high fatalities to Nazi air raid shelters, basically, the basements of apartment buildings, with single exits easily blocked by rubble. People who remained in their homes and stayed in the streets when their homes caught fire had much higher survival rates.
