Anonymous said: The Jews immigrated peacefully to Israel in 1948. The Arabs then attacked them because they hate Jews. This is what it is all about. Israel has God on its side. That is why it has been so successful. Israel is exemplary at avoiding civilian casualties any other nation would have wiped Gaza off the map by now.
1) “peacefully”? Sure they bought a lot of land in the region but the 1948 exodus of Arabs was anything but peaceful. Please read more about the 1948 Palestinian Exodus.
2) “because they Jews”, not true, general statements like that are not just ignorant but extremely foolish. I know many Arabs who don’t hate Jews, and some that do, but a lot of Jews hate Arabs as well and they are attacking them now. Your point is?
3) “Israel has God on its side” - That’s cute! Is that the same God from the Torah that says we should kill homosexuals? kill people for working on the Sabbath? stone women to death for having sex before marriage? keep your fairy tales to yourself. How about we makes these things part of the law in Israel? After all the country was created based on what the Torah says!
4) “Israel is exemplary at avoiding civilian casualties”. Is this some sort of joke or comic relief or are you serious?
Israel is great if you are one of “God’s chosen people”, if not then you are not actually human in their eyes, they’ll create laws to make it seem that way, but even then they fail at it miserably. Ironic because I’m not Jewish yet I know exactly how/where the term originates from, but you apparently don’t. If you are Jewish it would be extremely embarrassing for you to get it so wrong! Actually the Torah, the very same book you speak so highly of because you are so happy about this “God”, a book I have read, is pretty clear about who God’s chosen people are. Everyone else may as well be second class citizens (at best) or worthy of dying. In the Torah, Deuteronomy 7, for instance, is an entire chapter that talks about how all descendants of Jacob are god’s chosen people and they must go in the “Promised land” and not feel sorry for the people as they destroy all the non-Israelites, and demolish their religious symbols. A truly racist concept, that this apparent “god” chose one nation over other nations to be more special, a concept so many people cling on some to extreme extents like the Israeli settlers.
Have you even read the Torah? It’s the true foundation of all this mess in Israel no matter how much modern-day Israel tries to cover that up by constantly bragging to the world how secular their country is. Do you think about what you’re saying or do you just repeat things you hear somewhere? So while we’re at it, why don’t we follow the laws of the Torah then? After all that’s the book being used to justify establishing Israel where it is in the first place! You know all those great laws of the Torah like killing non-believers and stoning people to death if they ask you to join other religions (Deuteronomy 13:13-18), raping virgin girls then just paying her father off and she is your wife (Deuteronomy 22: 28-29), the book that constantly justifies slavery, beating your slaves, killing homosexuals (Leviticus 20:13), and so on, I think I’ve made my point! That’s not me, that’s the Torah, the book that justifies the crimes of Israeli settlers under the basis of their religion.
So how is it all shut down, well this is exactly how criticism of Israel is shut down. Whenever someone criticizes Israel, the response is either chants of “Nazis”, then when that makes no sense, it’s “racist” or “anti-Sematic”, then when that’s clearly not true it’s “supporters of terrorism”, and when that’s obviously not true, it’s “you left wing liberal morons”, and then it’s “oh look at the crimes of everyone else”, as if to insinuate anyone who criticizes Israel automatically loves every fuckin’ tyrant and murderer in the world. These are acts of desperation. Man up and accept the crimes of Israel instead of trying to divert attention away by bringing up bullshit. A mass murderer who goes to court can’t use the excuse of “well there are other murders out there” to get a free pass. I’ve said very clearly the death of innocent people is wrong regardless of them being Israeli or Palestinian. But it seems like you just want everyone to cry over Israeli deaths or be labelled with names! Love Israel or else you’re a racist Nazi, anti-Sematic, supporter of terrorism, basically anything but good, unless you support Israel unconditionally! For your own sake and the sake of Israel’s future, you better wake up from this sad fantasy that Israel can just hide all its crimes and get away with it by using the same hackneyed arguments.
