So it’s only bad when Israel does it: Remember all the brouhaha over Israel’s refusing to go along with the UN’s one-sided Gaza war investigation? Well, there doesn’t seem to be an eye being batted over Hezbollah declaring that no matter what the UN investigation into Rafik Hariri’s assassination turns up, they won’t turn over the suspects. He has even threatened a coup over the results. So, how many editorials, op-eds, and statements you figure were made over how Israel should cooperate with the UN no matter what? Shyeah. What time is it? That’s right, Israeli Double Standard Time—but no worries. It only occurs on days that end with a “y.”
Yes, Glenn Beck was over the top. I can’t believe I have to say this, but Media Matters isn’t wrong on this part of their most recent complaint against Glenn Beck. (Broken clock, etc.)
On his November 10 radio show, Beck described how Soros, who was born in Hungary to Orthodox Jewish parents, “used to go around with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their property and then ship them off. And George Soros was part of it. He would help confiscate the stuff. It was frightening. Here’s a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.”
Soros did not help send Jews to the camps, and Beck is wrong to say so. The ADL is right to call him out on this, and he should be ashamed of himself. There are plenty of other rotten things to say about Soros, but he did NOT help round up the Jews and send them off to the death camps.
