invent a higher, more stringent standard than is universal
OK, here we go. Where did I say Israel had to be perfect? What was the higher, more stringent universal standard that I invented. Please be specific.
apply it to the subject of your hate
show that the subject fails this artificial, often unreachable standard
reach the conclusion that the subject deserved to be hated. ,
I did that huh? ...and tell me TP, when did you stop beating your wife?
Let's see. First, you ascribe to me several premises that I do not hold, and then you use these premises to prove what else? -- that I "hate" my subject. Such is the typical "rebuttal" from a member of the Amen Corner -- logical fallacies, lies, and the stomach punch all rolled into one. You're laughable.
disturbed that Israel is not living up to the democratic ideals?
No, I am not disturbed (nice smear term by the way), and certainly dont hate anybody. Disgusted would be more accurate.
I am disgusted that Israel and Jews gets away with things that NOBODY else could EVER get away with. That's why my hat's off to Joe Sobran. He has the courage to speak out.
Let's consider the roll call: the USS Liberty massacre, Pollard, AIPAC, 100 billion in US foreign aid to Israel, Israeli spy rings on US soil, Israeli foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks, the list just goes on and on and on. In the meantime, most American Jews support liberal democrats, and the few conservative Jews that are out there tend to be staunch Zionists that advocate the interests of Israel over the interests of the United States.
Some say that it's improper to criticize Jews (or any other group) as Jews. It is said that it is only permissible to criticize individuals. Yet when Christians organize in their own country to advance a political agenda, we ALWAYS seem to hear about it, usually from the media and Hollywood, both of which are dominated by Jews. Or, to use Billy Graham's phrase, held in a stranglehold.
Suppose Arab Muslims dominated the Isreali media. Suppose we amended the US Constitution along the lines of the Israeli ethnic-religious model, except with white Christians taking the place of Jews.
Would that disturb you? If the answer is yes, you are rank hypocrite.
You are disturbed because, just like our own one, their democracy could benefit from perfection?
Again, I am not disturbed." I am disgusted . I'm sick of the dishonesty on this topic. You can call me all the names you want now.
