Reader comment on item: Tariq Ramadan Exposed

Submitted by Paul la Demain (United States), Jul 28, 2007 at 03:46

Ramadan is a successful con man. Notice how he incorporates his outrageous lies within his specious argument, thus: "I don't believe that an eight year old child is a soldier. These acts are condemnable; therefore one has to condemn them in themselves. But I say to the international community that they are contextually explicable, and not justifiable.

What does this mean? It means that the international community today has placed the Palestinians in a situation where they are delivered political oppression, which explains (not justifying it) that at a certain point people say: we don't have arms, we don't have anything, and so we cannot do anything other than this. It is contextually explicable but morally condemnable." So what is Ramadan's cleverly incorporated internal lie: Answer: His declaration that the international community today has placed the Palestinians in a situation where they are delivered political oppression ... etc."

The truth: First, they are NOT "Palestinians" rather, they are Islamic Palestinians, which distinguishes them from Jewish Palestinians. Second, the international community has nothing to do with the matter--these complaining Arabs placed themselves in peril when they answered Arafat's siren song to invade Israel by illegally entering Israeli territories. Shimon Peres, to a lesser degree, must shoulder a goodly measure of blame because it was he, together with his friend, Jimmy Carter, who helped the invading Arabs transform themselves into what they never were. Of course the elderly and weak-minded leadership of Israel played a role in the Saudi-sponsored scheme to destroy Israel because they eagerly succumbed to Arafat's seductive false promises.
