I Have No Problem With The Jews, But Israel…

How often do we hear that sentiment ranging from people across all walks of life, people who would present themselves as liberal and progressive, logical and fair? People who think of themselves as pushing for freedom – rather than pushing against it.

It seems to be that the mindset is that if you’re a liberal, progressive, forward thinking person who cares about human rights and cares about personal freedom and cares about minorities and cares about all that stuff that makes us feel good inside, then there is no way you’d be standing up for the State of Israel.

  • Why of all countries do leftists single out Israel? Perhaps the leftists could answer that. Didn’t Western nations kick out indigenous tribes? Are they still legitimate nations?

    I expect some blather from leftists on this.

    • They never have an answer.

      Because they already ‘won’ in South Africa.

      They also never have an answer to just how far back in time do you roll things back to.
      1066 seems to be a good arbitrary year, but then again, 376-476 A.D. looks pretty good too.
      Personally, I want to bring back the Minoans, but there seems to be no enthusiasm for going back THAT far.

        How you doing buddy?
        I’m raising my Lucky Lager to you!

          Well, I’m released from the hospital, but still not home yet.
          I expect to be fully home, roughly independent, and not scaring friends and loved ones with my general appearance by tomorrow.
          I liked one of my Drs.’ responses to my statement that I felt bad, but not THAT bad, to which was “yeah, and that’s how most people die”.
          Not exactly comforting words, but probably true.
          My blood has been thinned down to a ‘nice for winter’ 15W which means I need to give myself a once-over in a mirror looking for giant bruises that indicate that maybe they have thinned me out a bit too much.
          Doing stupid things makes me winded, and I hate that.
          I expect that to go away, but not for another month or so.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            A guy goes to the doctor and says Doc it hurts when I do this.
            The doctor says then don’t do that.
            I’m glad you’re better.

            If reading stupid things make you winded—
            Then don’t bother reading my nonsense.

          • El Martyachi
          • Get some rest.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Well, actually that’s kind of a problem too.
            I just want to lay down, but I’m told not to, since inactivity can cause problems too.
            Really, it just sucks all the way around, so I mostly try to ignore it.
            A least I now know EXACTLY what a “pulmonary embolism” feels like and if it ever happens again, I’ll know to not try to ‘walk it off’.

          • Try low-impact exercises.

            Swimming, for example. Even tai chi (I know but it’s low-impact).

      • I’d say the Phoenicians.

        That name rolls off of your tongue.

    • Shebel

      Get up with the times .
      Nobody knows anything about the Jews .
      YOU are a very uncool People.

      You are almost as bad as we Presbyterians.

      “Didn’t Western nations kick out indigenous tribes? Are they still legitimate nations?”
      Not to hear the SJWs tell it. :rolleyes

      • Well, everyone is a bad guy to them.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          Everyone white.

          • Because their lack of pigment makes them evil.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            But “knowing” that isn’t raaaacisst, of course. :rolleyes

          • They’re racist, anyway.

            Damn micro-aggressions….

  • Shebel

    Israel is bad.
    They persecute the Palestinians.
    They shoot back when you shoot at them.
    The Jews are baad folk.

  • FactsWillOut

    I have no problem with Israel, but Jews are a gun-grabby, anti-freedom of speech gang, however.
