If Israel did it, the world would be outraged: Syrian troops have entered Lebanon in pursuit of rebel troops, destroying houses and shelling as they go. Where is UNIFIL? Probably making sure they’re out of range of Hezbullah. Besides, they only watch Lebanese murder Israelis. Syrians murdering Syrians and Lebanese? Not their problem. Assad has accepted a truce. It works just like the terrorist truces with Israel. He continues to kill, and the rebels continue to die. Israeli Double Standard Time? Yeah, we got that.
Don’t worry, al Jazeera will play it and it will be on the internet forever: French TV stations are being told not to air the video of the Toulouse massacre and the murder of French Muslim soldiers. Isn’t it interesting that there was no such demand for the airing of the video of the al-Dura “death” (which has since been shown to be a fake)? Always, when videos will have negative consequences on Jews, count on them being shown. And when they vindicate Jewish positions, count on them being hidden. That’s the rule. To this day, France 2 refuses to release the full video of the supposed killing.
Oh, don’t be ridiculous, the core of the conflict is settlements: Benjamin Netanyahu said once again that if Palestinians were willing to recognize Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people and begin actual negotations, the conflict would end quickly. See title. Also, “right of return”. Also, “1967 borders”. And don’t worry, Steven Walt and the mainstream media will tell us how Netanyahu uses this excuse as a reason not to negotiate.
Using Hitler to sell shampoo? So? The main reason for this entry is so you can click on Today’s Zaman, the English-language version, and read the comments by Turks who think it’s no big deal. Of course, these are also the people who insist there was no Armenian massacre in Turkey. Although you can read pretty much the same comments on the news sites of every other nation that features this story. Yep. Here, here (that’s HuffPo), here, and okay, this comment is really funny, this story uses Elder’s video (no bad comments, just a plug). And the New Yorker allows only funny comments, it seems. But you get the picture.
