    Huh? What does that have to do with anything? First of all German Jewish victims of the Holocaust make up less than 10% of the total. Second, most of the atrocities took place in eastern Europe, Poland in particular. And third, most Israeli Jews have Middle Eastern ancestry, a result of absorbing 750,000 Jewish refugees from Muslim countries.
    So even if your “place where the atrocity happened” argument was at all applicable, which it isn’t, you’d still be completely wrong about why the Jews are in Israel instead of elsewhere.

    Really? Are you certain about that? Did you even look to see if it’s true? How many synagogues are there in Indonesia?

    The people on Fox News are biased. Everyone is. But they bring on people of differing and opposing opinions all the time. There’s this one guy they have on quite frequently, whose name I don’t recall, who used to work for the Clintons and he always goes on and on about how Obama and the Clintons can do no wrong. How it’s not their fault if it doesn’t work or doesn’t do what it’s supposed to. Seriously, I’ve yet to hear him ONCE admit that they did anything wrong.

    So you now proposing that the US Government take action based on a personal belief of one man. He has a right to his opinion, he has the right to speak his opinion, and the Israeli government has nothing to do with it. It’s logic like that that lead to Obama imprisoning a man for making a poor quality youtube video while blaming him for the death a US ambassador.

    That would be Hamas. Hamas uses the Israeli military to kill their own children.

    There are Christians who say that those who reject Jesus go to hell. So one Jew saying that the contributions of non-Jews to society happens in order to benefit the Jews is tame by comparison. At least his view has non-Jews fulfilling their role in life. The former view I mentioned says that non-Christians can never be saved.

    Last I checked, half the government secretly attacks Israel and 70% of universities do it openly (okay 70% MIGHT be an exaggeration, but at the very least 70% permit students to openly attack Israel).

    Huh? Jews place Moses on such a high pedestal that there is actually a Jewish prayer that says, “There shall never arise another prophet like Moses among Israel.” Was he flawed? Absolutely. Men are always flawed. There isn’t one Jewish Biblical figure who was without flaw.

    Israel has a seat in the United NATIONS nil. I think that means they are recognized as a nation. Not that I trust the UN to define such things.

    Molotov cocktail thrown at foreign military: guerrilla warfare
    Molotov cocktail thrown at domestic military: either rebellion or domestic terrorism depending on the circumstances
    Molotov cocktail thrown at civilians: ALWAYS terrorism.

    It’s not that hard to understand.

    Wow. Four lies in three sentences. Going for a record there?

  • October 28, 2014 at 1:05am

    Wow. You actually believe that? Leftists all over flock to Palestinians and you claim is the right that’s their true ally? The reason they’re spring the left is because they are also on the left.

    Technically if you read the Hebrew term, the sea was called the Sea of Reeds. Since there are no reeds in the Red Sea there is a possibility it was a different body of water that split.

    If you’d actually read the article, you’d see that while archeologists haven’t found definitive proof (note that lack of proof doesn’t mean it didn’t happen), they do try to analyze the account to see if it could fit with what we do know about Egyptian history. The results were actually quite interesting.

    Interesting analogy. But of course or in no way resembles the facts.

    Imagine if someone who lived in your neighbor’s house 2000 years ago PURCHASED it and as a result you felt that the neighborhood was changing. That’s what really happened. Arabs didn’t like that Jews were legally settling land that they bought. They didn’t like how these new Jewish land owners actually worked their own land instead of hiring workers the way arab landlords did. So they began attacking Jewish villages, some of which were built on land never owned by Arabs, began beating Jews in mad riots for no reason, all the while whining to the British that too many Jews were LEGALLY immigrating.

    what’s wrong with a Jewish state? Britain is a British state, Germany and Austria are German states, Russia is a Russian state, and the list goes on. Germans are a nation with a shared language, history, and culture who possess a national homeland. No law prevents non-Germans from living in Germany or defines what a German’s ethnic background must be.

    Zionists saw Jews as a similar national group that also had a shared language and culture but which lacked a homeland and was rarely welcomed amongst other nations as equals. Their solution was to establish a national homeland of their own.

    So how is a Jewish state different from a British one?

    @just
    nationalism is not based on ethnicity. Nationalism is based on national identity. So unless you define your national identity as being based on ethnicity, which most people do not, the two are unrelated.

    For example, the paper we’re discussing here by Churchill defines what he calls “national Jews”, Jews who are loyal to the nation in which they reside. Similar to patriotism. Clearly the nationalism of these Jews can’t be based on ethnicity because they are not British.

    Simply put, we are using the same word to express contradictory concepts. Zionism isn’t based on ethnicity. From Zionist perspective Jews aren’t an ethnicity. From a pre-Israel Zionist’s perspective, Jews are either a nation without a homeland or a cultural group without a cultural center. Jews have never defined themselves as an ethnicity.

    One more quote for you.

    “It is particularly important in these circumstances that the national Jews in every country who are loyal to the land of their adoption should come forward on every occasion, as many of them in England have already done, and take a prominent part in every measure for combating the Bolshevik conspiracy. In this way they will be able to vindicate the honour of the Jewish name and make it clear to all the world that the BOLSHEVIK MOVEMENT IS NOT A JEWISH MOVEMENT, but is repudiated vehemently by the great mass of the Jewish race. (Emphasis added)

    I have read it on mod than one occasion. THE WHOLE THING not just the posts I agree with (though to be honest I do agree with almost everything he said).

    Some excerpts you clearly did not read:
    “There can be no greater mistake than to attribute to each individual a recognisable share in the qualities which make up the national character. There are all sorts of men — good, bad and, for the most part, indifferent — in every country, and in every race.”

    Thus Churchill would not approve of blaming even most Jews for the actions the communist Jews.

    “First there are the Jews who, dwelling in every country throughout the world, identify themselves with that country, enter into its national life, and, while adhering faithfully to their own religion, regard themselves as citizens in the fullest sense of the State which has received them. Such a Jew living in England would say, “I am an Englishman practising the Jewish faith.” This is a worthy conception, and useful in the highest degree.”

    “Zionism offers the third sphere to the political conceptions of the Jewish race. In VIOLENT CONTRAST TO INTERNATIONAL COMMUNISM, it presents to the Jew a national idea of a commanding character. It has fallen to the British Government, as the result of the conquest of Palestine, to have the opportunity and the responsibility of securing for the Jewish race all over the world a home and a centre of national life.” (Emphasis added)

    I happen to agree with Churchill. Unlike you.

    If you can’t understand the difference bergen nationalism and national socialism then I can’t help you. Churchill opposed Hitler because Hitler was evil. Churchill opposed communism because it is evil. Both seek to enslave people to their government and execute all who don’t conform.

    Churchill supported Jews who were loyal to their home nations. He also supported those who wished to found a new nation. No Zionist ever sought to conquer foreign nations. No Zionist ever expressed a desire to impose conformity upon people. Not one Zionist desired the expulsion of any group. If you can’t see how that is the complete opposite of nazism then you are blind.
