and Says: "The Greater Goal Cannot Be Accomplished in One Go"
Al-Jazeera TV (Qatar) - September 23, 2011 - 01:49
A Tip 'O the Kippa to Barry Rubin.
They tell us on more or less a daily basis that their goal is not peace next to Israel but the annihilation of the Jewish state.
Does the progressive-left care?
You would never know it by reading their material, that much is certain.
I tell you guys, if and when the time comes and we need to look around for our friends, do not expect the progressive-left as a group to among them.
If they cannot even bring themselves to stand with us when it costs them nothing then for sure they will not be with us if the time comes when we actually need them.
Again, we need to be clear about just who our friends are and who they are not.
So long as we keep telling ourselves that our friends are our enemies and our enemies are our friends, then we haven't a chance if things get sticky.

I'm surprised that you removed your post.ReplyDelete
I saw nothing wrong with it.
Amended the above comment, to now say:ReplyDelete
Saw this the other day.
It should be presented to the group you mention.
They are so out of touch, however, that they shout down the source and call you this or that.
Thus, they probably will never know that this was said.
Could you imagine if an Israeli said this, the hysteria it would cause.
It's regrettable that too many of the pro-Israel crowd at some sites are too afraid of being called an Islamophobe to disseminate what is actually said in some circles.
When they can't ever ever ever say anything bad about any state but Israel you know they are lost. When they march alongside those carrying signs which call for the death of Israel and the US, you know they are lost. When they make excuses for terrorists and terror supporting entities and regimes you know they are lost. The list is endless.ReplyDelete
One of the big moments for me was when I attended an anti-war rally in SF and saw signs intertwining the Star of David with a Nazi swastika and calls to "globalize the intifada."ReplyDelete
That was the day I knew that the left was dead to me.
It is not the left in total. These people are just on the edge, in my opinion, and the events will continue to repudiate them.ReplyDelete
They are caught up in their self-reinforcing kabuki. Being in that theater allows them, absent risk, to call for revolution and the like. But they are in an echo chamber.
One day the truth will come home and they may come to grips that they, too, are under threat from forces that seek to destroy universal rights.
Truth is, they could not implement even the most simple things and everyone knows it. That applies to many other leftists as well. This is the left's largest issue, an incompetence fueled by theory over substance.
No, it is not the left in total.ReplyDelete
It's a small percentage of the left that is welcomed by the great majority of the left, who simply do not care one way or the other.
I mean, when I was seeing those signs with Swastika I also noticed that no one was complaining about it.
And this tells me that the progressive movement is neither a friend, nor an ally, to the Jewish people.
I think that they will be less welcome as events unfold and their true stripes are revealed, that they are against what progressivism stands for.ReplyDelete
This does not get to the overall incompetence of the left to implement its visions.
The right is no friend of Jews either, except as it comports with its transitory, geopolitical views.
weasel is back recommending in Soysauce's diary!
Figures. What next. The famous Professor of Janitorial Research...Simone Daud?
