Posted on 08/07/2012 8:56:03 PM PDT by Zionista Feminista
In an entirely predictable effort to use the word Jewish to attack those who support the Jewish State, the organization Jewish Voice for Peace invited other haters of Israel to sign a letter to Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, lambasting him for his racist and ignorant statements about Arab Palestinians.
In one of the more hotly debated statements Romney made on his trip to Israel last month, he attributed the vast disparity in economic health between that of the robust Israeli one and the dismal one of the Palestinian Authority to, in part, a difference in culture.
Given that the two societies live in the same climate, with the same geologic infirmities, is it a wonder that someone might think to look to culture to explain the vast difference between the two? Of course, the naming of childrens sports teams, streets and town squares after people who blow themselves up in order to murder as many Jews as possible is surely an indicator of cultural inclination.
But the JVP folks insist that the reason for the disparity in economic health between the two societies is the Occupation.

Sounds more culturalist than racist to me. I see nothing wrong with culturalism.
Jewish Voice for Peace should be translated as communists for Jewish surrender.
I think the author meant “left-wing extremist hate group.”
‘They can’t stand the truth.’
Culture explains most of the disparities around the world, and is not racist at all. We are all different because we come from different cultures and each culture has its own customs and unique social and societal behaviors that find themselves reflected in economics and other areas.
Jewish Voices for Peace is a miniscule far-left, pro-Palestinian organization who speaks only for the mentality ill, anti-Israel KAPOS in their group, all 5 of them.
In wartime, they would be executed as enemy collaborators, like some KAPOS were (George Soros escaped such a fate, unfortunately).
The best we can do is to ignore their hate-filled rantings, point out their treason, and wish them the Ten Plagues.
It's hard to imagine spending even half a minute with this clown in the belief he has anything cogent to offer sorting options in life.
However, the most important resource of any society is human capital, and that human capital is shaped by the culture.
Israeli "culture" is one of education and hard work. The Israeli's turned a barren country into an agricultural powerhouse. And the education of her people has led to Israel's leadership in the high-tech world.
The pali's "culture" is one of victim-hood, and the need to kill Jews. While it might be emotionally satisfying for them, it certainly doesn't pay well, and once the suicide bombers finally get good at what they do, they're only able to do it once, so it's not exactly a good long-term career choice.
Seriously, anyone who claims Romney's statement was "racist" is a booger-eating moron, and they need to be publicly mocked and humiliated.
