What do you mean by "we," Kemosabe?

In a classic Mad Magazine cartoon (that I dimly recall), the Lone Ranger and Tonto are surrounded by a horde of hostile Indian warriors. The Lone Ranger says to Tonto "what do we do, now?," to which Tonto replies, "what you mean 'we,' kemosabe?"

Wow, they are nuts. So in other words, because of what Hitler & Germany did in the WW2, Israel has to bomb a middle eastern neighbor who hasn't attacked any country in hundreds of years. Really?
It is long overdue to stop backing Israel, stop interfering with Israel, and if they piss off their neighbors, they reap the consequences. Time to grow up.

Do ya think he wants you to vote for Ron Paul?

This is a great example of a classic "Fighting Fair" rule

Almost all Fighting Fair rules to promote long-term good relationships have something like the following rule:

"Keep it relevant.
Don't bring up old grudges or sore points when they don't belong in a particular argument. Put boundaries around the subject matter so that a fight doesn't deteriorate into a free-for-all." ~Dr. Phil

But politicians purposely break this and several other Fighting Fair rules to divide the people and get us to support stupid things (e.g., Iraq War, Patriot Act, etc.).

And now they are using another ridiculous argument based on the fear of something that happened nearly seventy years ago by a totally different group of people (Holocaust by Nazis in WWII) to support pre-emtively bombing another group...just in case.

It's freaking crazy.

The slogan "Never Again" is all about this. But that is like going through a bad divorce and vowing never again will I get married...in fact, I'm just going to sue any woman who doesn't like me. THAT is Israel/neolibs/neocon's argument for bombing Iran...because Iran doesn't like them.

And I'll be honest, I don't like it that Jewish holidays seem to be all about old wounds. By bringing it up every year, they can never move forward. How can they have healthy relationship now/in the future if they are constantly drudging up horrible events from past relationships?

Passover Is The Worst

"Let us never forget" that we were slaves in Egypt. And the son who has no interest in this self pity is characterized as "wicked."

Then we revisit each of the plagues that God brought upon the Egyptians, culminating in the slaying of the first born son of each Egyptian family.

lets talk about the armenian holocaust

israel gets mad when you mention other ones besides their copyrighted one.

Sounds like the demands that we pay decendents of

former slaves in the USA to compensate them for something that happened over 150 years ago.

If this is how the world works, the USA is going to pay one hell of a price to compensate all those in countries we have decimated over the many decades of our ruthless foreign policies.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Hitler was Iranian ?

Go ahead and cast the first stone, just don't bitch when they throw one back.

If Net-n-ya-hoo

wants to go to war with Iran then he should declare war on them and suffer the consequences. This is not our fight. Iran is no immediate threat to us. Are we living in the United States of Israel? No, we are not. If I were O-bomb-ya I would tell Ya-hoo that he is on his own if he starts that war.

That's a long clip

I'm very sensitive to the sights and sounds of evil. I very much appreciate those who could endure it long enough to formulate commentary that I can review.

When Is Netanyahu's Term Over?

Might there be a less hawkish Israeli prime minister on the horizon?

"We will not live in the Shadow of Annihilation...

we are evil enough fockers to Cast a Shadow of Annihilation and that (God and AIPAC members willing), is exactly what we will do!

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Palestine 2.0

When exactly does the holocaust no longer get to be used as an excuse to ethnically cleanse Arabs in utter hypocritical fashion? Good ol' Zionist Israel, you can't fool the world forever!

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Most of the world

isn't fooled by Israel's lies at all...just most of the west, especially here where it's shoved in our faces on a near daily basis.

Even questioning the holocaust™ in several countries can earn one a prison sentence...but not like there's anything to hide, right?!

Using the holocaust as

Using the holocaust as justification for an attack on Iran is beyond ridiculous. But I don't think questions about the holocaust are forbidden in some countries because there is anything to hide. I think it is to prevent holocaust deniers from spreading lies and stirring up trouble. Same as banning Nazi stuff in some places. You have to nip things like that in the bud, otherwise these groups could become dangerous.

Disregard government. Acquire liberty.

No, you really can go to prison

for even questioning any part of the official holocaust story in several countries.

Even if it was just to keep "deniers" from "stirring up trouble" (how?), that in no way justifies locking people up. That'd be like our government locking people up for say, questioning the motives behind the War on Terror...can't have those dangerous people causing trouble!

That is different from

That is different from questioning the War on Terror. The issue with the holocaust is about those who "question" it with the intent to spread hate, violence, and ignorance.

Here is the actual law:

"Publicly inciting to violence or hatred, even by dissemination or distribution of tracts, pictures or other material, directed against a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin."

Publicly condoning, denying or grossly trivializing
- crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes as defined in the Statute of the International Criminal Court

crimes defined by the Tribunal of Nuremberg(Article 6 of the Charter of the International Military Tribunal, London Agreement of 1945)

IMO that is much different from someone just "questioning motives."

Disregard government. Acquire liberty.

Openly playing the victim-card.

I wonder why he and Obama can't get along, they are so alike.

Well, but I'm sure the race-baiter in chief will join him on the bombings.

Another old chestnut

coupled with terrible logic right there. Big shocker that he brings up "the" holocaust (as if WWII was the only one) in a cheap attempt to appeal to emotion.

I'm also getting tired of how many Israelis/Jews act as if they were the only people to have been affected by what happened in Nazi Germany, because that increasingly tired argument can be ripped apart quite easily...but of course to point such a thing out would be "anti-semitic"!

Basically, this dimwit is attempting to justify genocide by reminding people of how horrible genocide is.

"the" holocaust

Thanks for making that point. My grandparents are Armenian, and their parents were forced out of their country by the turks, and there was massive genocide and ethnic cleansing. You don't see the Armenians using that as an excuse to ethnically cleanse arabs in Palestine and now Iraq. Guess they missed the memo giving them permission to be total hypocrites....

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

And the Rwandans

aren't either. Israel is being ridiculous.

The American Indians were not treated exactly fair either

How many died from small pox tainted blankets and the trail of tears?

And by "Iraq" I meant "Iran"

If I recall correctly

weren't the Armenians denied a place in a holocaust memorial museum (one that ONLY talked about Jewish deaths in WWII...nobody else) not too long ago? I don't think too many schools here get too deep into the subject either.

One of my ex-landlords was Armenian, and he taught me about what happened to his people...very sad indeed.

uhmmm how bout the 10 million SLAVs?

don't hear much about that or the thousands or people being accused of being gay? I bring that up because I just read a book SAVED BY THE ENEMY about the Holocaust. It is the account from the stepson (who is not Jewish) of his Stepfather who lived through it with his brother in Berlin - eventually living in a subway tunnel. The book contains all sorts of pictures which he got from the holocaust muesum because the museum was using a picture of said StepFather and StepUncle that was taken of them as children in Berlin. There is picture in there of 30,000 accused gay men with heads shaved waiting for the trains. I had never heard about the TEN MILLION Slavs (meaning Polish / Czechoslovakian) it blew my mind. And here this guy in front of AIPAC and HALF THE US CONGRESS saying everything he is saying...makes me kind of sick.

Yeah, the Slavs got it the worst

People rarely acknowledge what happened to the Poles in WWII beyond "they were invaded". Even the Poles who didn't get hauled off into camps were regularly beaten and raped in their own neighborhoods (the 'justification' being that prior to WWII, the Poles treated ethnic Germans poorly).
