I’m sick of seeing people fellate Israel like it can do no wrong.
If someone dares to speak against Israel, that person is automatically equated to Hitler and the Nazis. If Israel attacks a country, it’s self-defense. But if any other Arab country attacks another country, the US Military Cowboys will be over there in a heartbeat bombing them, and toppling their “oppressive” regime.
If you say that the Muslims had their land stolen by the West, and given to the Jews, you’ll usually hear the lame ass excuse “Well, the Israelis had it stolen 2000 years ago!” Great argument, moron. Of course, when you mention that by their logic, America should be given back to the Native Americans, they shut up. It doesn’t matter if some “ragheads” get up-rooted, but heaven forbid you give up your comfy lifestyle to return the land America stole back to its rightful owners.
And another thing I’m sick of hearing is morons parading around what the Iranian President supposedly said. Accord to mainstream news outlets, he declared that “Israel should be wiped off the map.” Numerous sources have in fact shown this to be a mistranslation of what he actually said. Here is an entry from Wikipedia:
“The ‘wiped of the map’ translation originated from the state-controlled Islamic Republic News Agency. This translation’s use in the media has been criticized. Arash Norouzi, artist and co-founder of The Mossadegh Project, says the statement ‘wiped off the map’ did not exist in the original speech and that Ahmadinejad directed his comment toward the ‘regime occupying Jerusalem’. Norouzi’s translation of the Persian quote reads; ‘the Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.’ Juan Cole, historian of the Middle East and South Asia, concurs; Ahmadinejad’s statement should be translated as, ‘the Imam said that this regime occupying Jerusalem (een rezhim-e eshghalgar-e qods) must [vanish from] the page of time (bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad),’ noting that there is no Persian idiom to wipe something off the map. Shiraz Dossa, a professor of at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada, also believes the text is a mistranslation.“
According to translators, he said that the Zionist government that runs Israel should fall. Zionism is the movement which supported a Jewish state. It is important to note that there are Jews who do not support Zionism. Jews Against Zionism, Neturei Karta, Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism, and Satmar are all Jewish organizations that do not support the Israeli statehood.
Also, people say the Jews don’t control the banks, and this is a racist statement. According to Wikipedia, the current Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank (The people who print America’s money) is Jewish. The Mayer Amschel Rothschild family is also Jewish, and has supported Zionism. I admit, I don’t know enough about banking families to say that all of them are run by Jews. But to say that Jews don’t exert some control over our money is an outright lie.
Also, I oughta point out the stupidity of people who deny the Holocaust. These people either ignore common sense and logic by flat out denying it ever happened, or they claim that the genocide didn’t happen to the extent they said it did. “It wasn’t 5-6 million Jews killed in the concentration camps! It was only 2-3 million, LOL!” I’m not even going to touch such a stupid ass comment. To deny the Holocaust is just plain retarded.
However, I think laws to make it illegal to deny the Holocaust are even more retarded. If someone wants to make an ass out of themselves, and deny the Holocaust, or downplay the death toll, then let them. There’s a thing called “free speech” that allows this. If someone hates Jews or whatever, that’s their problem. Let the Jews fight back about it themselves.
Stop deifying Israel and Jewish people simply because they were persecuted 60 years ago. Israel is no better than Iran, and Jews are no better than any other religion.
