The right wing government again playing the Holocaust card as a defense to any criticism of the government as anti-semitism. But the reality is – the government of Israel really is one of the top threats to international peace. In my opinion, just behind the Bush administration who continues to masquerade as America ever since they stole the presidency in a judicial coup.
Here’s what people don’t get. There is a difference between the right wing Israeli government and Jews. Not the same thing. And – there is a difference between legitimate criticism and anti-semitism. If a Jew does something bad – and you call it bad – that’s not anti-semitism. The government of Isreal is and evil bunch of mother fuckers and should be removed. When people like that are in power and work against peace – then you will find that eventually people figure it out.
Israel has been described as the top threat to world peace, ahead of North Korea, Afghanistan and Iran, by an unpublished European Commission poll of 7,500 Europeans, sparking an international row.
The survey, conducted in October, of 500 people from each of the EU’s member nations included a list of 15 countries with the question, ‘tell me if in your opinion it presents or not a threat to peace in the world’. Israel was reportedly picked by 59 per cent of those interviewed.
The leaking of the results of the poll to El Pais and the International Herald Tribune has sparked a bitter row, with a major Jewish human rights and lobbying group, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, demanding that the EU be excluded from the Israel-Palestinian peace process and accusing Europe of suffering the worst outbreak of ‘anti-semitism’ since World War Two.
The results appear to be a mark of the widespread disapproval in Europe of the tactics employed by the government of Ariel Sharon during the present intifada.
Israeli Ministers and spokesman have also been at pains recently to insist that a definition of modern ‘anti-semitism’ should include criticism of the way the state of Israel chooses to protect itself, defining that criticism as an overt attack on Israel’s survival.
