Koch And Friedman

Ed Koch (“Tom Friedman’s Skewed Vision of Non-Violence,” op-ed, April 20) was rightfully shocked by how Thomas Friedman, a Jew, can support violence against Israelis by calling rock-throwing “peaceful protest” and asked “how would Friedman feel if a child in Israel were to be struck by a stone, perhaps losing an eye … ”

Friedman’s total lack of common sense becomes clearer, and almost comical, when you apply his twisted definition of “peaceful” closer to home.

If the Occupy Wall Street protesters, for example, threw rocks at cops or passersby, would anyone consider that peaceful? The protesters would be arrested immediately.

Would throwing rocks at the columnist or other New York Times employees be acceptable to Friedman as a “peaceful” means of protest? My guess is not.

It’s outrageous that anyone can show more concern for the misguided territorial claims of the Palestinians than for the lives of Israelis (who are constantly being bombarded with rockets). And that such a spurious pretense of compassion can come from a Jew, directed against his own people, only shows how shamefully disgraceful some individuals have become.

Maoz And Wallace

Jason Maoz’s comments on Mike Wallace were right on the mark (Media Monitor, April 20). Wallace was a liberal ambusher of non-liberals. He would delight in throwing high hard ones to the likes of Richard Nixon while serving up marshmallows and softballs to the leftists he so adored and emulated.

As for his “interviews” with and subsequent comments about mass killers like Arafat and Khomeini, they were the work product of a quintessential self-hating Jew who felt the burning desire to disabuse anyone of the notion that he was a “real” Jew. He paved the way, in a distasteful manner, for the Jewish bashers of Israel all around us.

I think Seth Lipsky is amazing, but it just drives home the point that newspapers have a lot of moving parts.

While conceding that not all criticism of Israel stemmed from anti-Semitism, Podhoretz contended that those most likely to subject Israel to relentless and one-sided hectoring could be found with increasing frequency in one particular grouping – that of the political left, with the level of animosity rising exponentially the farther left one moved along the spectrum.

Myth #1: It is easy to be a B’nai Noach. It is extraordinarily hard to be a B’nai Noach.

The question of anti-Semitism in Europe today is truly tied to the issue of immigration.

Polls indicate that the Palestinians are much more against a two state solution than the Israelis.

Emigration from Israel is at an all-time low, far lower than immigration to Israel from Europe.

Do you seriously think that as you kidnap our children we should medically treat and help yours?

Sometimes collective action against the heinous acts of the majority is not enough. The world should not only support the blockade of Gaza; it must enforce the dismantling of Hamas.

The Arab Spring has challenged Jordan with the task of gradual reform with regard to its monarchy.

Israel offered Syria the entire Golan Heights, only to find that the Syrians were demanding MORE!

Israeli hasbara too can be described at best as pathetic, at worst non existent.

Journalists see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as morality play: Israel=evil; Palestine=innocent
