- Hi Jeff - loving the website. I know you try to be provocative.
Piece of advice about provocation though - it is a favorite tool of propagandists.
Think about it. Another objective they all share is to change the subject
from reality to intentions. Be careful. It is easy for anyone to say,
"you want to destroy me, therefore I must destroy you first, before
you move a finger to carry out your plans." As an editor you don't
want to fall into these traps. You want to convey real information.
- GWB is using the preemptive argument to wage his evil
Iraq war. For him the mere assertion that Hussein wanted to build nukes
was enough justification. Never mind the invasive no-fly zones already
in place, the constant satellite surveillance, the UN inspectors crawling
all over the country. GWB wanted war.
- The Muslim sheiks quoted in your 'Z' articles use the
same trick - oh, we must push Israel into the sea because of these evil
greater Israel schemes in their papers. Well, when Israel in fact marches
on them, that is the ethical time for self-defense. These settlement disputes
are not world conquest.
- It would be nice to see more articles on your site showing
quotations from Muslim leaders going back to the 50s saying that they need
the Palestinian problem as an excuse to wage war on Israel; which is why
their laws prohibit Palestinians from immigrating. The Muslims could solve
the Palestinian problem tomorrow if they wanted. It's not about ethnic
cleansing. They could just set up incentives with their enormous stash
of petro-dollars. Instead, they let the Palestinians fester. Hell, Araft
lets them fester, the problem suits him fine.
- The Lilienthal site is rather juvenile, uninformed, and
bigoted. I mean the business about turning the millions of American Christians
who share a religious heritage with Jews as 'cult' - well, come on Jeff.
You can do better for us. I know many of these people personally and it's
true they need some political education (your site helps) but calling them
a cult is just over the top. Lilienthal is a paranoid bigot.
