Simply deal with a Devil

Reader comment on item: [William Blum and] Al-Qaeda's Leftist Brigade

Submitted by Boris (United States), Jan 24, 2006 at 18:23

I am Jewish, I am a former citizen of the former USSR and current citizen of the USA. It seems the Far Left does not realize what world they live in.

I wish they would talk to me or to many other people like me to learn about why many people in the East (Middle, Far and Not-so-Far) hate the West. I have not seen anyone, literally anyone, among these haters who would clearly explain the real nature of their hate. They use totally fabricated arguments, propaganda and simply emotions, and never real facts. Comparing the US government with Nazis is one of these demagogical, strictly emotional and irrational statements.

This propaganda makes me believe that the real, but hidden, reason for hate to the USA in the outside world is jealousy and only jealousy. They will support any rumor, any piece of propaganda any unverified "fact" to prove to themselves that their hate is justified. "I hate anyone who lives better than me" - this thesis was popular in the USSR and still popular in this part of the world. Most haters will never admit they think that way, but keep this little thought unconsciously very deep in their heart.

Mr. Blum and Mr. Bin Laden are a different story. I don't know what the real motivation of Mr. Blum is, but both of these gentlemen have something in common - and that is making deals with the Devil. Mr. Blum would make a deal with anyone who would help with his publicity. Mr. Bin Laden will make a deal with anyone, even Sharon himself, who would help his cause.

The Far Left has lost completely their sense of reality - they live in the world of conspiracy theories addressed to their own government only because that is the only government they know and don't know anyone else they could criticize. And critique is their only acceptable "modus operandi".
