Yes. Because she realizes that (0+ / 0-)
the violence of the occupation is what caused this tactic. Unless you somehow want to argue that without Israeli oppression Palestinians would've been using the tactic of suicide bombing for no reason?

This insidious "fire bad" person is suggesting that violence against Jews in the form of suicide bombing is the fault of those Jews. Since Israel is mean to the local Arabs by putting up check-points and the security fence in order to get them to stop trying to kill us, we apparently deserve whatever we get.
This is what "fire bad" means by the "occupation." Efforts by Jews to prevent Arabs from killing them become, in the mind of this Kossack, a good reason to kill Jews via suicide bombing.
Of course, what she doesn't tell you is that Arabs have been in the Jew Killing Business long, long before there ever was any such thing as the Jewish state. How would she, I wonder, justify the Hebron Massacre of 1929 wherein local Arabs slaughtered 67 Jews.
Describing the savagery, Edwin Black, in The Farhud: Roots of the Arab-Nazi Alliance in the Holocaust (page 205) writes:
House to house, they went, bursting into every room looking for hiding Jews. Religious books and scrolls were burned or torn to shreds. The defenseless Jews were variously beheaded, castrated, their breasts and fingers sliced off, and in some cases, their eyes plucked from their sockets.
Such a gentle people.
There was no "occupation" then.
There was no Jewish state to so vex the local Arabs.
There were Jews praying in the city of Hebron, the city where Abraham is buried.
The "fire bad" person goes on to wonder:
Why do you think Palestinian violence (0+ / 0-)
Ummm, hello, I believe that I can answer that question. The Kossacks won't. Not even the liberal Jewish ones will answer that question because to do so accurately makes one a "racist."
The reason for so much Arab violence against Jews over such a long period of time, millenia, is due to Koranic-based Jew hatred wherein the Jewish people are dehumanized as apes and pigs and set-up as the very enemy of G-d, himself.
This is why Hamas is the only elected body on the face of the planet that has genocide at the heart of its foundational document.
The notion that the horrendous Jews would actually gain self-determination and self-defense on land that was once conquered by Arabs is humiliating to those Arabs who are trained from infancy to despise the Jewish people, which is why there is an "occupation" in the first place.
"Progressives," even those who favor Israel, will never tell you the truth because the truth is not Politically Correct. Multicultural Political Correctness rules the progressive mind. Multicultural Political Correctness is more important than truth. Multicultural Political Correctness is more important than universal human rights and Multicultural Political Correctness is more important than the lives of Jews, women, and Gay people in the Middle East.
If you're a progressive, that is.
By that logic, 9/11 was the fault of the US. I know there are some circles where that's a pretty popular narrative, mostly on the fringes of the left, a bit on the right. (I think Ron Paul actually suggested something similar.) But pretty small. And not very well received. Anywhere.ReplyDelete
I have said before that scratch a lot of the usual suspects and you are going to find them supportive of the violence. They hide it pretty well but every so often the mask slips like here, and with soysauce some time ago and of course Nuclearnate and his band of recommenders and defenders.ReplyDelete
Those of us who are Jewish who are truly liberal are horrified by, and are expressing criticism mainly toward, the current behavior and mindset of the political Left, because we identified as, and, in some cases, still identify as, being members of the Left.ReplyDelete
However, it must be understood that the people who were, and are, the main, and most important, and most influential, engagers in the Western racist covert diplomatic, and espionage, and propaganda, war against the nation of the Jewish people, Israel, were, and are, the members of the "Establishment" social class of the United States of America who were, and are, the leading members of governmental intelligence agencies of the United States of America, and the members of the foreign policy departments of the United States of America. They were "Establishment" Republicans - they were the "Establishment" controlling core of the Republican party - and, in the 1930's and 1940's, they were outright financial and political supporters of the Nazis, and, after World War II, they continued to support, and protect, German former Nazi officials. An important aspect of this is that the CIA was founded, by Allen Dulles, with, as the core founding membership of the CIA, several thousand German former Nazi officials.
What is perverse, is that, as a result of the efforts and influence of the Soviet communist regime of Russia, the political Left in Western countries has co-opted the perverse conspiracy-theory racist anti-Jewish false narrative that was initially propagated by the Nazi-supporting Establishment class in Western countries (the USA, Britain, and Germany).

Video description on the page of the video: "The head of the Iranian Green Movement opposition in an interview to Israeli channel 10 news on Iran after the IAEA report on its nuclear activity, on Ahmadinejad's crazy messianic twelver ideology, the prospect of war and the Islamic winter, and the Iranian people."
