The Moral Malaise

"While there is never an excuse for antisemitic violence or rhetoric, we must do everything in our power to put ourselves above reproach so that the racists cannot find any hook for their bilious attacks."And there you have it. The reason why Self-Hating-Seth is self hating. He's scared. A coward. Well you know what, Seth? The rest of British Jewry isn't like you. We're not scared. We're proud, proud to be Jewish, proud of Israel, and proud to support Israel. Even if it means we suffer anti-Zionism and antisemitism. It isn't going to make us think that Israel is all wrong. It's not perfect, but I'd like to see how any other country would deal better with the challenges that Israel is faced with. People have always hated Jews, always hated Israel, but unlike SHS, we can take it.
"In many parts of the West Bank, Israel's much-vaunted separation wall is conspicous by it's absence."He goes on to say that the wall is only 60% completed, that some of it is only flimsy, unguarded fences, and that it is "child's play" (his words) to dodge checkpoints and the fence, and "enter Israel entirely at will without encountering a single soldier or slab of wall", and then, I kid you not, he calls it a "non-existent barrier". So what point is he trying to make? That the wall isn't such a big deal? No. His point is that it isn't the wall that has caused the dramatic decline of close to 100% in suicide bombings. He then says that if anything, the wall would increase the likelihood of violence because of it's "crippling impact on life for the Palestinians". So the fence goes from non-existent to crippling. But wait, there's more! Freedman criticises the settlers who feel unprotected by the wall, as he says there is a strong presence of Israeli soldiers in the West Bank, but that sort of contradicts his earlier claim that terrorists can easily wander round the WB and into Israel without getting caught by the IDF (when in fact on average at least 1 Palestinian is arrested daily at a checkpoint carrying a knife or some other weapon). To conclude, Freedman is an idiot. Ignorant, hypocritical, and therefore no credibility. Perfect for the Guardian, who love him over there. Even when he calls the fence 'non-existent' they'll still agree with him because they know he will somehow make that a bad thing for Israel.
"That the wall is detested by millions of Palestinians, has been ruled wholly illegal by an international court, and has been proved to be a tool for blatant and brazen theft of Palestinian land".There's no denying that it must be very unpleasant living behind that wall, but, and I truly am sorry to sound so callous here, it's simple really: don't do the crime if you can't do the time. The Palestinians should have thought about the consequences of their actions before they decided to blow up hundreds of Israelis. When you think about it really, they got off quite lightly. It's just a wall. It's an ugly wall, it's a nuisance, it isn't nice. But it isn't killing anybody. So here's the advert.
