Guardian

At least a few Egyptian protesters clearly read the Guardian


H/T Gili Brenner

I’m glad these anti-Mubarak protesters have their priorities straight.  Their movement is about: Democracy? Tolerance towards religious minorities?

Wrong.

It’s all about destroying Israel who (isn’t it clear?) controls the U.S.

Somewhere, CiF’s John Whitbeck and his many Guardian admirers are smiling.

  1. This is just sad -is there any hope at all? These people are clearly poor and disadvantaged and yet this is their priority. Almost like Pakistan. This hatred is so deep-rooted that it is almost impossible to believe.

  2. They expressed their hatred of Israel, and their paranoid belief that somehow Israel et al. are fundamentally responsible for the woes, perhaps (and I do not deny the danger of such beliefs), but they didn’t actually threaten to destroy Israel, so far as I heard…

  3. So they hate Israel and its all Israels fault.
    Now I know why there is a the bursting population under 30 years old—-those Israelis really are remarkable!(chuckle)

  4. Wow, what a great opportunity this Egyptian crisis is. While everyone’s attention is focused on Egypt Bibi et al can move lots more caravans to the West Bank settlements with anyone noticing !

  5. Sian,

    0:32-0:46 and 1:11-1:25 are especially for you and your kind.

    You really should mind the crap…

  6. Although I don’t agree with Friedman, I respect his knowledge. Don’t flatter yourself, by “your kind” I meant Der Guardian and all the other Hamass-lickers.

    No doubt that not like the other so called experts Friedman is a ME scholar speaks Hebrew and Arabic, but he left the area many years ago and has no real and uptodate knowledge on the subject, his writings and opinion have nothing to do with the present situation and can be classified as any other naive and self-righteous crap.

  8. Boutrous Al-Majari,

    Speaking of so-called experts:
    There is a professor of Middle Eastern History at Hebrew University (who doesn’t even speak Arabic…), and his political views are the same as Friedman’s, as opposed to the leading experts in the field in the world – like Professor Moshe Sharon, also at Hebrew U. – who are more realistic.

    “Friedman is a ME scholar speaks Hebrew and Arabic, but he left the area many years ago and has no real and uptodate knowledge on the subject”

    Sounds like a good description of the many guest/cross posters on this site🙂

    Perhaps the Knesset should set up a committee to investigate people like Friedman. BTW, YNET is featuring a translation of the Friedman article so I guess its about time the Knesset started investigating them too.

    The Knesset doesn’t investigate people whose opinion is different. They want to know who is financing the Isreeli branch of lawfare against the IDF and the Boycott Israel movement. But you know this very well.

  11. Peter:
    If these people have broken any law then the police are welcome to investigate them. If a Knesset committee wants to investigate the foreign funding of ALL groups in order to prepare new laws that govern ALL groups it is their right to do so. But when a parliamentary committee in a democracy controlled by the majority party uses its privilege to selectively investigate the opposition for its own narrow political gain, then it is pure McCarthyism. But you know this very well as a resident of “the only democracy in the Middle East”.

  12. MTC,

    “While everyone’s attention is focused on Egypt Bibi et al can move lots more caravans to the West Bank settlements with anyone noticing !”

    There are no JEWISH settlements in Palestine. By definition! The Jews are the indigenous Palestinians. The ONLY true settlers in Palestine are the Arabs, who are indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula and settlers elsewhere. Got that, anti-Zionist scum?

    “If a Knesset committee wants to investigate the foreign funding of ALL groups in order to prepare new laws that govern ALL groups it is their right to do so.”

    The Knesset needs to investigate all anti-Zionist groups, regardless of their source of funding. A plurality of political opinions in Israel is a good thing, but only within the bounds of compatibility with Zionism. Any group that denies the right of the Jewish nation to an exclusive nation-state in Palestine must be outlawed.

    (As for McCarthy, you use his name as a smear, but if you called me a McCarthyist I’d take it as a compliment. He was right, and had America listened to him, Obamarx would never have risen to power.)

  13. MindOfCrap, There is nothing wrong with investigating the background of groups that side with islamofascists.

    You obviously FEAR that something unsavory and detrimental to your goals will be revealed.

    It’s only a matter of time till the islamist rioting spreads to eurabia.

    The only question is to which eurabian entity will be the first to fall.

    Adam Levick –
    This seems to be the typical level of comment on your web site. Doesn’t it bother you?

  15. MTC
    Leave th bullshit of McCarthysm. There is no need to investigate the finaces of every group of people who have some common interest. Would you demand to know who pays the activity of the Filatelic Society of Afula?
    But the foreign funding of political groups is an other category and the public has the right to know who pays their bills. While rightwing groups don’t make a secret of it, some of the leftwing groups clearly and unequivocally represent foreign interests without acknowledging this fact and masquerading as something else. In the US the law requires such groups to register themselves as foreign agents.

    If these people have broken any law then the police are welcome to investigate them.

    Inciting against soldiers of the IDF and supporting boycott against Israel should be unlawful.

    But you know this very well as a resident of “the only democracy in the Middle East”.

    Do you know other democracies here? Egypt, Syria, Saud-Arabia? Maybe Lebanon – they have a functionning parliament haven’t they?
    Do you want to emigrate?

  16. Should one investigate the funding source for the planned Cordoba mosque? Or would that be “islamophobia” or “mosqueophobia”?

    What about phobiophobia, as in Roosevelts famous speech?

    Isn´t the modern world great? Magical thinking is back!
