bulldozing the "moral superiority of Israel"


The bulldozer as a destructive and even lethal weapon was not invented by the Palestinians. They are merely imitating an Israeli “fashion” that is as old as the state, or at least as old as the occupation. Let us forget for a moment the 416 villages Israel wiped off the face of the earth in 1948…

In 2004, for example, 10,704 Palestinians were made homeless after the IDF destroyed 1,404 homes, mostly in Gaza, due to “operational needs.” In the Jenin refugee camp, Israel destroyed 560 homes; the legendary bulldozer driver “Kurdi” told how he would swig whiskey as he “turned Jenin into a soccer field.” …

Do not say that our bulldozers only destroy but do not kill. Who killed peace activist Rachel Corrie … And what about the Shubi family in the Nablus casbah – a grandfather, two aunts, a mother and two children – crushed under bulldozers? And who killed Jamal Faid, a handicapped man from the Jenin camp, whose wheelchair only was found under the ruins of his house, with his body never recovered? Was that not bulldozer terror?

    There’s no moral equivalence there. No wonder you people live in caves. Arabs start wars and use their homes as terror bases.And they have recently used bulldozers to murder innocent people.As to Rachel Corrie:< HREF="http://thunderbay.indymedia.org/uploads/2006/12/hateful_traitor_rachel_corrie.jpgwptcyz.jpg" REL="nofollow">RACHEL CORRIE 1<>< HREF="http://www.moonbattery.com/archives/2006/03/pancake_breakfa.html" REL="nofollow">RACHEL CORRIE 2<>< HREF="http://www.moonbattery.com/archives/rachel_corrie_pancake.jpg" REL="nofollow">RACHEL CORRIE 3<>< HREF="http://stonegiant.com/Politics/RachelCorrieIHOP.jpg" REL="nofollow">RACHEL CORRIE 4<>< HREF="http://bp2.blogger.com/_almyIcHiNmY/R9wQAwodGdI/AAAAAAAABEU/jfxJNqN9Ym4/s1600-h/Corrie%20cartoon.jpg" REL="nofollow">RACHEL CORRIE 5<>Terrorist-supporter got what she deserved.

  2. I think the basic premise is mistaken; state entities can have no moral authority, no more than they can have souls.They can only have interests. The morality of the Israeli position in the West Bank is indefensible. But more critically for the survival of the state, it is mistaken.

    The morality of Israel in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza has been indefensible because it allows its enemies to get away with murder and ethnic cleansing.That will end soon.

    As you can note from these comments and other made across the cybersphere, the Israeli argument is always “They deserved what they got” or “They are terrorists and terrorists deserve to die”. How can you argue with someone who does not listen?

    You can note from these comments and other made across the cybersphere, the Arab argument is always “Us murdering is legitimate- including using our own civilians as human shields while trying to murder their civilians” and “Israel preventing us from murdering their civilians isn’t legitimate”.You don’t argue with terrorists. You kill them.
