Dr Pipes:

I can't tthink of any other left wing group that is more loony than those in Israel.

Be it the daughters of PM Olmert ( a hybrid of Peter Boyle - from liberal Hollywood and Marty Feldman - from liberal England)

and

Moshe Dayan

or

Fred Schlomka, the defiant Israeli leftist.

To save their own skin, they cannot support collective punishment. B'Tselem and other " progressives", ; i.e., losers from Southern California and San Francisco; often with law degrees, raised in liberals are the greatest enemy that Israel faces today.

Greater than Iran or Syria combined.

From the pen of Fred Schlomka::

"Collective punishment is a violation of ... International Law " - socialist leftists love quoting this.

I have heard this excuse so often yet I have never been told where the International Law Act is found. I assume in the Netherlands; a country slowly becoming muslim.

" ... in 2004 the IDF ceased punitive house demolitions based on research that showed they were counter productive, and increased terror rather than decreasing it."

Research probably done by B'Tselem and other Israeli human rights groups, no doubt, supported by Euro money ( AL-Qaeda money?).

"Vengeance should not be confused with appropriate and successful military tactics. " - military tactics will cost the lives of young Israelis. Perhaps Fred Schlomka wants to see this.

This will mean that Israel will have to import more palestinian guest workers.

I think that vengeance is good for the soul. So did Churchill.

Sorry to say it, but I think that Fred speaks for many Israelis. Especially their professors and the politicians.
