It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

I Feel My Valve Closing

Once again I find myself having to expose another example of Leftist Judeophobia. 

I posted a variation of my thoughts on Pakistan, etc over at another blog I write for, and got the following comment in response from someone calling themselves Dancing Opossum (the only one that anyone would consider thoughtless and half baked on the thread).

First off, quoting Mark Steyn on a supposedly liberal blog? Really, was Rush Limbaugh too nuanced?
Second, “laying down to radical Islam?” Could your rhetoric be any more overblown? Maybe you should stop reading necons and read some history instead (and no, “From Time Immemorial” doesn’t count.)
And finally, it’s highly amusing to hear anyone refer to Hamas as a genocidal terrorist group. Hamas would not exist if it weren’t for the genocidal terroristic actions of that illegal, apartheid rogue state that we keep sending money and arms to, namely Israel. (But we get so much in return, right? Bombing of our ships, selling of our intelligence, two unecessary wars–with the ever-present possibility of a third, with Iran–and the hatred of the entire Arab world. Such a great tradeoff!) “Talking with” Hamas is not only an absolute necessity at this point, it’s the only moral AND practical thing to do.
Being respectful of my host I did not lay down a Shtuey style attack.  But there are no such rules here and so...

I see no problem quoting anyone as long as their argument is supported by facts.  Steyn certainly qualifies.  And I am not a liberal, not in the current American vernacular at any rate.  

Ironic that this Jew hating ass advises me to study history instead of propaganda.  It is because I have studied history that I understand that the essence of radical Islam is not hatred of America because we supposedly support Israel (I could make a very strong argument that the United States, apart from money and some weapons systems, does not support Israel at all).  They hate us because they have not converted or killed us.  If you actually study history instead of propaganda Dancing Idiot, you'd understand that this is the essence of jihad.  It's a holy war in the name of Allah to convert or kill infidels you moron.  Why is it that the ignorant from this dingdong to Ron Paul to Pampers think that if we just cut off our money to Israel, if we just sell her out to her enemies, the Islamists will stop wanting to kill us?  Do you really think that if we let Israel be wiped off the face of the earth that they'd send us Tickler Bouquets instead of planes crashing into our cities?  Are people really that fucking stupid?  Yes they are.

But the ultimate stupid, coming from someone who advises a student of history not to read propaganda, is calling Israel an "illegal state" when the leftist Temple of Justice, the United Nations, sanctioned the creation of the State of Israel.  Whoops!  And once again I am forced to point out that if Israeli policy was that of genocide Hamas wouldn't exist.

My god, how is it that we are plagued with such ignorance and stupidity?  No wonder we're so fucked.

Hmmmm....I'm an INFIDEL & I'm in your
Corner. Any fool that reads the Quran knows exactly whats up. I don't wanna be a dhimmi (sp?). Anti-Semiticism is rising so fast it is shocking. Israel has the right & indeed the obligation to protect herself and her citizens. Hamas is terrorist. Keep up the good work & don't let the ignoramuses get you down.

Sounds like you're dealing with a young leftist who doesn't know anything except maybe what's in Carter's stupid book. People like that aren't worth dealing with. I know this is your site and you want to vent here but it'd be better to instruct without the name calling. That opossum isn't here, just us folks who do know what's going on. We know there are lots of clueless people who don't understand who the enemy is and who don't know what a great country Israel is. They never had the education we did.

I should have given some background. This is someone who, in spite of facts presented in various blogposts on the subject, went on with the propaganda. Willful ignorance in the face of fact deserves condescension.

Since when is Israel an apartheid state? I see who ever keeps on with this nonsense does not know Israel's history. Maybe you should remind these freaking idiots about Israel risking life and limb to save Ethiopian Jews....I visited the places these people stayed when they brought to safety in Israel....

Israel isn't an apartheid state. They lived in the same neighborhoods as the Arabs that live in Israel. They even worked side by side in Haifa while I visited there. Sort of OT....I ate some of the best mideastern food in Haifa.

WTF is wrong with these uninformed lefties anyways!

They make me ill!

Thank you for the comment on Sandy's passing. Hubby and daughter send their appreciation too! She truly was just one of our kids. We miss her dearly. Her dog family is still in mourning today! They look for her still especially Gretchen...she was Sandy's seeing eye dog. Her job was to take Sandy out for walks when she needed to use the bathroom at night! We are recovering though!

The apartheid comment is most likely in reference to the treatment of Arabs in Israel. They are not exactly on the same level as Israelis, but even Human Rights Watch has admitted that the civil liberties enjoyed by Israeli Arabs is superior to any Arab nation so apartheid it is not.

Spreadles kept looking for Isabel in the yard, and then back in the house. She had seen her body, but didn't quite understand that she wasn't coming back. Even now with Shelly in the house, Rosie will still look around for Isabel, and sometimes have that far off look in her eye. Those two were bonded like blood kin. It has been gratifying to see her taking Shelly under her wing.

Thanks for the writing you do. I had to stop reading Cannon because he went on and on about Israel being an apartheid state, and I even think he made comparisons to Israel being similar to the Nazis and attempting genocide. Made me want to cry, how some people with what seems to be a clear vision about so much can be so twisted and stupid about Israel and anti-semitism. "It can't happen here" Yeah sure it can't.

Hey Dancing Trash Can Scavenger, Hamas wouldn't exist if it weren't for the backing of Iran.
Most people and especially the Jew Hating leftists don't get that we are actually in a proxy war with Iran right now, and they are beating on the doors of our only real ally in the Middle East. These idiots would rather sell out a friend for people who would turn around and throw them off a roof.

Wow...I was worried when I first read your post title, I thought you were closing shop and then I couldn't find any posts when I opened your blog...what's with that?

Anyway, keep up the good fight and get the truth out. I'm so sick of propaganda and sick of it being called "history".

Shtuey said...

Mawm, it truly is incredible that these people can feed themselves.

Mary Ellen, no worries...I'm going to continue to be a thorn in Washington's side until they start banning South African style...and then I'll find a way to beat them. Besides, I'm having too much fun.

I may not agree with a lot of your stances and your tone as you get your points across...but I do like the reference to Ignatius J. Reilly. I hope to see you mellow as time goes on.

Mellow? Mellow is for saps.
