Andrew Sullivan Is Entitled To His Opinion, But Not To His Own Facts

Andrew Sullivan is not a huge fan of Israel; he is entitled to his opinion. However, his latest column about the incident in the waters outside of Gaza makes up the facts. Honestly, in the case of most of the posts Sullivan writes about Israel, Andrew is living in his own reality, where truth and facts do not matter.

To then go on the offensive against a flotilla of aid ships, trying to bypass the blockade, and killing at least ten people aboard is bordering on insanity…

There are at least three bald-faced lies in that paragraph. First, the blockade was established to stem terrorism from Gaza (perhaps Sullivan forgot the five thousand rockets sent from the strip into Israel from 2005-2009).

Democrats hate Jews yet Democrat Jews keep on voting Democrat. I just don’t understand how come they keep on voting for the enemy. Is it self loathing?

Self loathing, yes; And guilt for being affluent and fear of envy.
