trans-parere, and my ethnocentric myopia

Reader comment on item: How to Turn Gaza Over to Egypt
in response to reader comment: don't blame others for your ethnocentric myopia

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Feb 15, 2008 at 20:23

Since I'm not a Jew, and although I would not mind if I was, labeling me as ethnocentric seems inappropriate. And of course, you are not indebted to the Jews, however, your negative responses regarding 5.5 million Jews surrounded by approximately 253 million Muslims who have attacked Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967, 1970, 1973 and continue to launch missiles and wish to dispose of the Jews who have occupied Israel for approximately 3 thousand years seems rather inappropriate. Stating that "you don't always think Jews act any better than Moslems", considering the number of occasions that Muslims have attacked Israel may be due to lack of historical information. Further more, labeling my religion which I have not discussed, as "mythology" is stating something you have no knowledge of.
