Major Bevelacqua on O'Reilly Compared Israel to the Nazis for their "Lack of Comprimise"

Posted on 07/18/2006 5:13:29 PM PDT by Yaakov The Orator

On the O'Reilly Factor, Maj. Bob Bevelacqua compared the Israel to the Nazis for their so-called lack of comprimise. He said that Israel going out of Lebanon and Gaza was like "The Nazis going out of Moscow" and proceeded to say that Israel needed to be more willing to comprimise.

You know, I hope Israel blows all of these terrorists off the face of the earth. For anyone to blame them is reprehensible, and dishonest!

Bill did challenge him on this. He listed all the compromises Israel has made, and then used his best weapon, "Ah, c'mon"

He also said he has a company in Beirut that employs 30 people. I think this is why he doesn't want Israel invading Lebanon. He has turned out to be very weird.

Major Bob and Ahmadinejad, both comparing Israel to the Nazis. I'm sure he's proud.

His lack of grasp of the facts is simply embarassing for a supposed expert.

That was more general than specific. It was good that he noted that, but I think if he attacked him specifically for the Nazi comment, it would have been more helpful.

Bevilacqua has a security business in Lebanon! 30 employees.

He opposes Israel's actions because they're wrecking his business.

Did you hear the fool say that he could understand an attack on Syria or Iran, but not an attack on Hezbollah in Beirut?

His personal losses are coloring his objectivity.

"comprimise"?

Is that like compromise, but for for ladies who have completed finishing school? ;-)

Major Bob is a little random for my taste.

Major Bob caught me by surprise on this one. Obviously his business interest sways his opinion.
I don't think we should be calling him names based on this considering his service as a Green Beret.
Maybe later if he ends up pulling a Scott Ritter on us.

I was watching and yelling at my TV. The guy acts like he has all the answers, but when pressed at the end, he hasn't a clue! It's easy to say that Israel 'is wrong" and that "they need to tone it down," but Israel has every right to go after hizbollah who have, as most wussy Arabs who wave their guns and rocket launchers around, entrenched themselves in the otherwise quiet neighborhoods among the citizens of Lebanon!

Listen, the U.N. threw Lebanon under the bus by not sending in a multinational force last year in order to disarm and remove the poop-stain that IS Hizbollah in Lebanon! Once again, the U.N. proves their irrelevance.

I don't know. I do know that from my humble roots as a simple minded Retired AF Cop, every time I have seen this clown on TV, he seems like the very opposite of what I knew SF Types to be. I have always had a bad feeling bout this yahoo.

Supposed to be a former major. If he was so sh&t hot, why didn't he go higher?

As a matter of fact, if he's so Sh%t hot, what's he doing bloviating on TV instead of doing what he is trained to do, either as an active, a contractor or an advisor?

Sorry-he has always been nothing more than a grandstanding little turd to me

And he even said something like the rest of the Arab world would understand [Israel bombing Damascus or Tehran].

Major Bob isn't playing with a full deck.

O'Reilly's been unwatchable for years, but Bevelacqua's "Jew troubles" are a new revelation.

I spit on both of them.

....maybe so...but I understand his concern....I want to pound Hezzie into the ground too....but Lebanon is actually pro America or at least to an extent.....they even helped nab and jail some that were working with the Miami Al Queda whackos and have freedom of religion....just hope that does not get screwed up.....but I do agree that Israel has the right to kill, mame, destroy Hezbollah....and Syria and Iran for all I care......

"I do see his point"

That Israel is acting like Nazis, or that Israel should try to be careful about killing innocent civilians? If the latter, that's exactly what they're doing -- Israel never targets innocents, and is extremely careful about limiting collateral damage. .....which is quite difficult to do when a cowardly enemy uses civilians as "human shields."

"Lack of compromise" on issues directly affecting your survival is a virtue. Cleaning latrines, slaughtering animals and removing threats are unpleasant jobs, but they all need to be done and done well.

Whatever his service, if he compared ISRAEL to the NAZI'S? Note: I haven't seen the interview. Key word being IF-

He crossed a line.

Nothing in one's prior service makes that comparison remotely respectable and it does, at least for me, raise questions about this man.

Yeah, just because a bunch of blood thirsty killers are hiding among civilians while they fire rockets at your country and people is no reason to get excited.

Better not break anything or kill any of the folks who are letting them hide among them.

I agree that Major Bob has some ill-will towards some in the W admin...as Yaakov posted above maybe his business considerations are clouding his judgement.
He seemed to be pretty on-target in many tv appearances after 9-11 but lately he seems to have "jumped the missle".

Seems many of us watched the same thing with the same reaction.

Imagine what sort of security business he can have in Lebanon that doesn't include in some way colluding with despicable characters.

You're right about the part about Syria, that was the tell. That his interest is selfish, personal and unique to Lebanon.
