Our friend Dan Bielak argues that we must defeat Arab and progressive anti-Zionist propaganda with actual historical truth. I heartily agree. Dan has been kind enough to share some of his notes on the I-P topic in the comments, but I think that much of this, certainly, is very worthy of front page status. I hope that Dan does not mind if I just go ahead and front page some of this material over the coming days.
Dan starts by telling us this:
Stupidity: "What anti-Jewish racism? What genocidal anti-Jewish racism?"
Vanity (and, as part of that, stupidity): "I'm so 'moral' for 'tolerating' the propagation of intendedly genocidal libels against my own people."
Cowardice (and, as part of that, stupidity): "Don't call out their anti-Jewish bigotry and don't denounce their anti-Jewish bigotry and don't refute their malicious intendedly genocidal lies! They might get angry at us and hurt us! (That is: They might get angry at me and hurt me!)"
Stupidity is not virtuous. Vanity is not virtuous. Cowardice is not virtuous.
Stupidity causes harm. Vanity causes harm. Cowardice causes harm.
Stand up for, and therein, and thereby, protect, your own people like normal human beings - simply by telling the truth.
