Reality vs the Lizard World

As Charles continues to quibble copy-editing mistakes and moan about how people are ignoring his bogus wingnut conspiracy theories that 'everything the media writes about Iraq is a lie', the world keeps on turning and throwing up uncomfortable facts.

For example, over the past week a senior Cheney aide has accused the administration in court of making him the fall guy to protect one of Bush's prize assets.

The Israeli president faces rape charges and the Israeli prime minister is up for corruption.

And the sheer depravity of American society was once again on show for all the world to see (1,2,3).

Of course, not a peep about any of this on LGF. Charles would much rather run racist cartoons reminiscent of Der Sturmer than reflect reality on his blog...

Charles would never say he has no bias toward America and Israel. The same way, that your post shows you want to focus on the "Depravity" of America.

Some people view the Muslim world at large as antiquated, and in desperate need of reform. Many view Israel favorably due to the sharing the values of democracy and freedom as America. (versus the other Middle East Countries in the region)

It would be illogical to say America and Israel are perfect. However, I do feel it is completely logical to say it's good America and Israel have the power/influence they do say versus say Iran, Syria or the former Afghanistan under the Taliban.

Ah yes. Israel. The shining light of democracy in the Middle East. A beacon of equality and modern civilization. An island of purity in a sea of filthy Muslim Arabs. A land of freedom and justice and shooting Palestinians in the head and stealing their land.

You know, making a comment like "The sheer depravity of American society" shows that you're pretty much completely anti-American. Which is fine, but it saddens me since I now recognize that your opinions are about as meaningful as those expressed at LGF-- just those of yet another bigot.

Read it, and here are some thoughts I hope you can ponder.

A) Do you know why there are there checkpoints? Are they there to harrass Palestinians? Or are they there to stop the multiple attempts of terrorism against Israel?

B) Notice that this critical article on Israeli policies is published on Israeli media...a media that shares our value of free speech. Would this be possible in state run media of most of the surrounding Arab nations?

C) As for freedom and equality, it is universally accepted that Israel has more political and economic freedom for Arab and Jew citizens of Israel alike then all the surronding nations. Please, you can disagree with certain policies (like checkpoints)...but be intellectually honest.

D) As for stealing land, you do know that an equal amount of Jews displaced ousted from surrounding Arab nations as Arabs in the Israeli territory when the subsequent wars were waged after Israel declared indepedance?

What was the difference between Israel and the Arab nations? Israel accepted all displaced Jews into their nation, both Jordan and Lebanon kicked out any displaced Palestinians.

I would love to educate you more, feel free to respond - but please do not equate my disagreement with your assertion that I beliee Arabs (in your own words) are a 'sea of filth'.
