64 Public Figures, 7 Nobel Peace Laureates, Call For Arms Embargo On Israel For War Crimes
Breitbart.com ^ | July 24, 2014 | Abe Katsman

Posted on 07/24/2014 10:13:07 AM PDT by Biggirl

An assortment of rabidly anti-Israel public figures, including seven Nobel Peace Prize winners, have called for an international arms embargo on Israel for its "war crimes and possible crimes against humanity" in Gaza. The statement came in a letter published in Britain's The Guardian on Friday.

The usual cast of idiots. Israel should just get a fleet of bulldozers and not stop until they get to the Arabian Sea.

I really do not understand hatred of the Jews. I’m sure the root cause is Satan - the Jews are God’s Chosen People.

Oh, we can sell them the weapons to defend themselves. But they are not supposed to use them.

I dare anyone to go in front of the local Federal building and set off a large firecracker every morning at 10 AM. See how many days in a row you can do that before you are hauled away by men wearing large firearms.

Is that disproportionate?

I’ve often thought that Israel’s formal policy should be to permanently annex a square mile of Arab territory every single time a rocket or a bullet is fired, or a stone is thrown.

Brilliant!

The current “Hamas has nothing to lose!” strategy is CLEARLY not working.

And it can give Israel more defensible borders, too.

Back in the early 1980s I came across a book by Alfred Lilienthal titled “The Zionist Connection.” It was housed at our town library. IIRC the basic premise was that everything (business, media (NY Times at the head), government) is controlled by Zionists.

Nowadays that sure seems rather absurd.

I wonder if the would have charged the Jews in 1940’s Germany for war crimes?

Certainly all these anti-Semites would have supported Hitler because he's big government

Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man
His enemies say he’s on their land
They got him outnumbered about a million to one
He got no place to escape to, no place to run
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully just lives to survive
He’s criticized and condemned for being alive
He’s not supposed to fight back, he’s supposed to have thick skin
He’s supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land
He’s wandered the earth an exiled man
Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn
He’s always on trial for just being born
He’s the neighborhood bully

Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized
Old women condemned him, said he should apologize.
Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad
The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad
He’s the neighborhood bully

Well, the chances are against it and the odds are slim
That he’ll live by the rules that the world makes for him
’Cause there’s a noose at his neck and a gun at his back
And a license to kill him is given out to every maniac
He’s the neighborhood bully

He got no allies to really speak of
What he gets he must pay for, he don’t get it out of love
He buys obsolete weapons and he won’t be denied
But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side
He’s the neighborhood bully

Well, he’s surrounded by pacifists who all want peace
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease
Now, they wouldn’t hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep
He’s the neighborhood bully

Every empire that’s enslaved him is gone
Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon
He’s made a garden of paradise in the desert sand
In bed with nobody, under no one’s command
He’s the neighborhood bully

Now his holiest books have been trampled upon
No contract he signed was worth what it was written on
He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth
Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health
He’s the neighborhood bully

What’s anybody indebted to him for?
Nothin’, they say. He just likes to cause war
Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed
They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed
He’s the neighborhood bully

What has he done to wear so many scars?
Does he change the course of rivers? Does he pollute the moon and stars?
Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill
Running out the clock, time standing still
Neighborhood bully

-Bob Dylan

I’ll say this: Who gives out the Nobels?

Norway along with Swedish input.

Do a little research.

Norway has become one of the most virulently anti-Semitic nations in Europe.

Sweden has decided it is ashamed of being Swedish and is allowing the wholesale takeover of its country by Muslim immigrants. Criticizing Islam has been outlawed and women in Sweden now have a 25% chance of being raped at least once in their lifetime. Both are committing cultural suicide and will be fully Islamic nations in just a few decades.

Seriously. Look it up.

The root cause of anti-semitism is hatred of the God of Israel.

Another variant of this hatred is staurophobia which is a virulent pathological fear/hatred of the Cross, especially of Him Who it represents.

They hate the God of Israel because they hate His commandments.

From Cynthia McKinney’s name, I see the list wasn’t limited to human beings. I also note the absence of Mary Robinson, former president/queen/PM of Ireland and outspoken anti-Israel bigot.

And I guess the authors didn’t troll the White House for their input, or the list might be twice as long.
