60 MINUTES Becomes Part Of The Palestinian Myth Machine

Last Sunday's 60 MINUTE report by Bob Simon ignored not only the historical context of the problems in Israel, a country that has been under constant attack since its creation in 1948 and is surrounded by arab countries that seek its ruin, but also the more than 5000 rockets fired by Hamas, a terrorist organisation, into Israel during the last six years. These attacks went unanswered by Israel until recently and when finally Israel did respond it did all that it could to avoid civilian casualties in spite of Hamas's cowardly policy of using their own civilian population as human shields. It seems the only thing Hamas likes better than jewish casualties is palestinian ones so they can arouse, manipulate, & influence the sympathy of the so-called international community, an increasingly spineless group seemingly intent on legitimizing a completely fabricated cause.

The accusation that Israel is an apartheid state is entirely scurrilous. Is Mr. Simon aware of the countless and constant palestinian acts of terror against Israel? Does Israel not have the right to defend herself? Did he not notice how the palestinians and much of the muslim world rejoiced in the streets when we were attacked on 9/11? Why does Mr. Simon not ask what Hamas is doing with the over $200 million in aid we have sent them in the last 12 months? "Why are we sending it?", he should ask. Better still, why does he not broadcast a segment inquiring what has happened to all the aid money that the disgraceful pedophile, Yasser Arafat, embezzeled during his tenure as chairman of the PLO? Mr. Simmon, it seems, is unable to distinguish between the attacker and the attacked. To paraphrase the late William F. Buckley, to attempt to establish a moral equivalency between those who wish to destroy Israel and Israel herself is to say that the man who pushes an old lady in front of an approaching bus and the man who pushes an old lady out of the way of an approaching bus are just two men who like pushing old ladies around!

Mr. Simon did himself and us a disservice when he abandoned his journalistic ethics, if indeed they exist any more, by acting as such an obvious and supine apologist for Hamas and the so-called Palestinian Authority which, by the way, is just the terrorist PLO masquerading as a government incase he hasn't noticed. Instead of informing us he sought to prejudice us against the state of Israel that longs to live in peace. After all this time Mr. Simon still fails to grasp that if tomorrow the terrorists put down their weapons, the next day there would be no more fighting. However, if tomorrow Israel put down her weapons, the next day there would be no more Israel. Grasp that and you have grasped the essence of this conflict. Iran and her proxies Hamas, Hezbollah, and the PLO, wish to destroy Israel. We must take them at their word but we should do all we can to help Israel frustrate their evil, genocidal, ambitions for their ambitions are limited only by their current lack of a nuclear weapon. The inability to distiguish between the fire and the fire department is one of the first signs of an appeaser. Shame on you Bob. MSNBC awaits or perhps you should just hand in your credentials and join the Obama administration. Most of your pals are already there.


  1. I notice you were fighting the good fight at Com from left blog. Kudos. I try to avoid engaging them about Israel - and about lots of other things. But I enjoyed, after the fact, seeing you had slashed your way in. Great fun.

    I don't know if your slashing did any good. They consider you, me, and most who disagree to be deluded and ignorant forces for horror.

    Meanwhile, rockets are again flying from Gaza into Sderot.

  2. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
