Think about the following...if this guy was dressed with a white hood in the KKK costume, would she gleefully pose for pictures? Would she be smiling if he dressed as Hitler? Why is it considered appropriate to dress as a Palestinian suicide bomber, and go to a party hosted by the president of an Ivy League School dressed this way? Do you think it would be so cool to see someone with a rope, faux-lynching a black person, at such a party? Obviously not. But yet, this is cool...
You see this guy training a little boy to be a future suicide bomber. This is at the party hosted by the president of the University of Pennsylvania.
I came across something else today that was very disturbing - Jerome a Paris over at Daily Kos posting the image of the Holocaust cartoon contest winner, and then saying this is a legitimate debate we should be having! Lest we forget, the images make it seem as if Israelis are perpetuating a genocide upon the Palestinians, and that they use the Holocaust as a justification for these actions.
This is the winning cartoon:
In fact, the truth is the opposite. Israel has been giving up land from day one, and the Palestinian population has grown by a factor of eight. Anyone who claims 'genocide' is usually stupid or believes Israelis should be the subject of a genocide. We know where Iran stands on that side of the debate. While I do not believe in censorship, it is clear this is NOT a legitimate debate to be having.
This is what Markos Moulitas had to say about Jerome a Paris's post:
Jerome is there to stand for the freedom of the repressive Ayatollahs to spread their anti-semite propaganda! What would they have done without him?
Most ridiculous diary ever. Worst timed diary ever. Do the right thing and get this shit off the site. Or, at the very least, wait until next Wednesday to repost.
In other words "This makes Democrats look bad, post it later!"
That's great to know. I just do not understand why it is that there is such a careless disregard for the lives of Israelis. Are they not human? Are they not made from the same flesh and blood as the rest of us? Why is there such a disdain for fellow humanity who are simply doing what they can to survive in the face of a genocidal death cult?
