Lincoln as a Bleeding Heart Peacenik?

Honest Abe used exactly the same blockade tactic against the Confederacy over which the Israeli Left is now sobbing its eyes out.

  1. Didi Remez says:

    Um, why don’t you ask Plaut for a citation or two? I consume a lot of Israeli media but can’t remember one instance when the analogy was used. Plaut has lost at least one libel suit, so I tend not to take his word for it.

  2. The left is using revisionist history. They have no clue as to the facts so they invent them to suit their purpose and then complain whenever somebody points out that they don't actually have any facts.

    We have several of these revisionists working on early Israel history like Noam Chomsky and Benny Morris. They have invented quotes and actions that never took place.

    Lincoln was anything but a leftist and would have hung those that act the our current leftists.

I joined the large crowd but this time it was more personal; my cousin Aryeh was one of the victims.

Terrorists aren’t driven by social, economic, or other grievances, rather by a fanatical worldview.

The phrase that the “Arabs are resorting to violence” is disgraceful and blames the victim.

Tuesday, Yom Shlishi, a doubly good day in the Torah, Esav’s hands tried to silence Yaakov’s voice.

Because of the disparate nature of the perpetrators, who are also relatively young, and given the lack of more traditional targets and the reverence Palestinians have for their homes, one now hears talk of Israel returning to a policy of destroying the houses of terrorists’ families.
