Glenn Greenwald: IDF Are Terrorists

Terrorism in the Israeli Attack on Gaza

Jewish journalist Glenn Greenwald SLAMMED IDF (led by their demonic-satanic leader Netanyahu) as terrorists.

If you landed on earth from another planet this week, knowing nothing other than the most common use of the word “terrorism,” which side do you think would most frequently be referred to as “terrorists”?

In American media discourse, when Palestinians overwhelmingly kill soldiers (95% of the Israeli death toll) who are part of an army that is blockading, occupying, invading, and indiscriminately bombing them and killing their children by the hundreds, that is “terrorism”; when Israelis use massive, brutal force against a trapped civilian population, overwhelmingly killing innocent men, women and children (at least 75% of the Palestinian death toll), with clear intentions to kill civilians (see point 3), that is noble “self-defense.” That demonstrates how skewed U.S. discourse is in favor of Israel, as well as the purely manipulative, propagandistic nature of the term “terrorists.”

The Left can't touch him

He's a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, he's gay, and he's a Jew. The perfect attack dog.

He's not black enough

Too much white privilege. Plus, being male and gay makes him a misogynist. ;)

Their demonic-satanic leader Netanyahu??

This is soo SAD! So tuly SAD!

I am truly so disappointed to see the GROWING and down right EVIL opposition to Israel from more and more users of the DailyPaul site. For starters, this, I am sure, is NOT in the spirit of our good doctor, Ron Paul himself.

The real evil here is the WORDS some for you guys use, like "DEMONIC" and "SATANIC" when describing Netanyahu. Come on, please reserve such words for those few who REALLY are fit to have both of those words describe them.

As an ENTHUSIASTIC fan and supporter of Ron Paul, and monthly subscriber to his online media site, I am getting closer and closer to NOT having "dailypaul.com" as one of my MAIN sites I visit on a daily basis.

I am VERY CLOSE to saying good-bye! And I suspect, and at least hope that many others are too.

This is soo S A D

Sad is kissing Netanyahu's ass

Go move to Israel you piece of shit we don't want you here

If you can't distinguish criminal justice from the laws of war and you're okay with 1/3 of deaths being children women or elderly then you are too incompetent to participate in a Constitutional Republic.. Go to Israel where you can serve your international butt buddies.

You are supporting a theocratic communist state. Go to your precious Israhell and hang out with these guys I am sure you will make a great sacrifice to satan.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

You won't leave

Just like the last time you feigned outrage and threatened to quit over the DP not being pro-Israel.

You don't have a problem with the endless threads on Obama, Putin and all the other world leaders.

But if it's Netanyahu, G_d forbid.

I'd recommend not dwelling in the refuge of the idiot. Come up with a real argument. You can do better!

Scanning back on your suspiciously brief post history, you certainly don't have a problem labeling most Muslims as extremists or terrorists.

That makes YOU the racist. Not the DP.

As a people so brutally

As a people so brutally treated in the past, I fail to understand how any Jewish person could support this equally brutal treatment of another group of people and still look themselves in the mirror. The hatred of the human spirit never ceases to amaze me. One would think such treatment of ANY group of people would be absolutely repugnant to all Jewish people.

Ok, can we say Pyschopath or Morally Degenerate Cretinoid?

I would apply these terms to many in our own government also.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Apparently not if they are

Apparently not if they are Israeli govt. officials. The Israeli Govt is sacrosanct, pure in motive and all its doings blessed by god himself.

If Americans Knew

The Palestinians voted for the Hamas

to be included in their government, knowing full well their agenda against Israel.

The Hama's don't care about the Palestinians, all they care about is becoming martyrs. They do not want to negotiate with Israel to address grievances, they want to destroy it.

Let's remember who is initiating force first---whatever Israel has done to the Gaza strip does not justify firing rockets into urban areas as proportional response.

The Palestinians need to eradicate the Hamas from their midst. Otherwise they will continue to be used by them so the Hamas can achieve martyrdom.

'initiating force first' [redundant]

That would be the occupiers

And what about the fact that

And what about the fact that the chosen ones have been electing pro apartheid politicians since 1948? The hypocrisy, racism and ignorance of Israel's supporters is quite remarkable. shame on you!

Again, Israel is the sole

Again, Israel is the sole aggressor. Their occupation is illegal. No human being should have to "negotiate" with their oppressors.

They are a Babylonian Death Cult

I recognize that piece of the speech from Arundhati Roy. The whole speech is worth listening to, though.

Paul Craig Roberts: Zionist war criminals

Israel Is Stealing and Murdering Its Way Through Palestine

Israel is not subject to criticism. Only Jew-haters, anti-semites, and people who want to gas Jews and boil them in oil criticize Israel. Israel is above criticism, because Israelis are God’s Chosen People and despite being God’s Chosen People suffered the Holocaust.

Israel is always the aggressor but always takes the role of the victim. Palestinian women and children are all subhumans–”snakes” as one Israeli politician put it–who sneak into Israel through secret tunnels (whose existence is akin to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction) wearing suicide bomb belts and blow up innocent Israelis along with themselves while Israelis sit in cafes peacefully discussing philosophical issues and the latest news. To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools, and civilian homes and apartment blocks.

These unmistakable war crimes, these crimes against humanity are all ignored by the great moral arbiters of the world–the Governments of the West who are shaking their fingers not at Israel but their fists at Russia.

Suggestion Reguarding Tact

I suggest that when you talk to people who aren't already disillusioned with Israel that you point out how bad groups like Hamas are, too. Then add that we need to stay out of it because our interference causes both sides to dig in more and not find peace. Also mention how both Israeli and Palestinian civilians are often caught in the middle, especially the Palestinians.

This way, it becomes harder to call you a terrorist sympathizer and it's a little easier to convince people around you.

Interesting direction

Apply the us/them or left/right paradigm to the conflict and approach it thusly.

This link to a lecture given

This link to a lecture given by an ex Israeli soldier was in the comments to Greenwald's story. The closing remarks (the last 5 minutes) are stunning.
