Whatever happens, we are always the good guys

The Daily Show had a terrific two-part series on the US cutting off all funds to UNESCO because they admitted Palestine to that organization, thus hurting many programs whose goals are to try and meet the needs of desperately poor children around the world.

Note how former congressman Robert Wexler, supposedly a progressive Democrat, supports this inhumane action. When it comes to kowtowing to the Israel lobby, so-called progressive Democrats toe the line as dutifully as anyone else.

    Just today, the Iraqi puppet government mouthed words on Washington’s behalf, “warning” (read: threatening) Iran for sending weapons to the Syrian government.

    Meanwhile, the US continues to send weapons to Israel which kill Palestinian children, and the media turns a blind eye.

    Of course, to Israel bashers like Mr. under, the Qassems and other missiles that are fired from the Gaza Strip into Israeli towns like Sderot are perfectly okay. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Mr. under now criticizes that Government of Iraq for having the temerity to tell the mad mullahs running the theocracy of Iran to stop supporting mass murderer Assad in Syria and stop sending weapons through their territory to him. It’s too bad that the Government of Israel doesn’t take a page from the Assad handbook and apply Hama rules against the terrorists in the Gaza Strip. That would give slime like Mr. under something to really whine about.

    Another day, another concern troll.

    Falsely equating criticism of Israel with calls for “reopening the death camps” only proves that you’re dishonest. It does not indicate anti-semitism on my part.

    The only anti-semite around here is you, who sees some semites – Palestinians – as not deserving of basic human rights. Israel regularly and repeatedly violates articles 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30 of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You and Israel actively support article 14, but that’s only because you want the forced exile of Palestinians rather than as refugees.


    Telling the lie often enough does not make it true, despite what you’ve been told – or wish.

    Shalom Mano,

    I wish that John Oliver had asked one more question:

    And Congress won’t repeal this law because?

    Well, based on his lack of response, apparently terrorist supporter Mr. under is all in favor of the current activities of the Assad Government in Syria and the Iranian support for those activities. Of course, if the Government of Israel started supporting the rebels in Syria and started supplying them with arms, terrorist supporter Mr. under would be screaming from the roof tops about interference in Syrian internal affairs. Fortunately for terrorist supporter Mr. under, that’s not likely to happen as the Government of Israel, so far, has been reluctant to criticize Assad, basically because they’re not sure the want to see him go, thinking that the devil you know is better then the devil you know not.

    slc displays the usual binary thinking – or binary lack of thinking in his case – one expects from hypocrites.

    If someone said, “I’m anti-fascist” does that mean the person is pro-communist? Only if they are. It is more likely – scratch that, almost a certainty – that a person who is anti-fascist is also anti-communist.

    In slc’s fetid mind, speaking out against Israel’s war crimes is somehow an “act of anti-semitism”. He’s also deluded enough to believe and claim that speaking out against Israel’s war crimes equates to support for the Syrian regime’s crimes.

    I am against the crimes of both regimes, but to a wilfully uninformed and dishonest apologist like slc, one cannot be against both.

    Excuse me Mr. under, you’re the one who criticized the Government of Iraq for demanding that Iran stop using its territory to ship arms to the Assad regime.
