"The phony human rights activist"

How was he phony - I remember asking this . .

- - -

"Human Rights Watch is funded by Saudi Arabia and even has Fatima Ayub on its Board who calls the Taliban and Al Qaeda "freedom fighters" against the US. "


- - -

"And what kind of fool would say the Qassem rockets hardly EVER do any damage???Google Afik Zahavi you insensitive thing. The missiles have killed not just Jews but Israeli Arabs also. Is it ok if I throw rocks at you because I think they hardly would ever hurt you and that this would justify your not defending yourself? Ridiculous."

Hence - why does IDF fire rubber bullets - Googling Afik Zahavi - proves nothing . . . if it did you would have done the job yourself - and pasted realms at me.

- - -

"Gaza was home to three Jewish communities before 1948 lost to Egypt."

Actually it was more than that . . . but so what? They were NOT sovereign of that land.

- - -

Gaza was part of Biblical Israel. Gaza was Egypt prior to 1967. Israel deported 8,000 Jews from communities that were built on sand dunes that didn't belong to anyone prior to the building. Still, Israel deported all the Jews to show they wanted peace.

Biblical - being the operative word . . . if you are going THAT back . . then according to the OT - Jews were the outsiders settling into Israel . . . and NOT the original inhabitants of that place.

- - -

"Businesses were left behind that employed the Palestinians when they were owned by Jews but the Arabs looted and destroyed everything, even synagogues when the Jews left. "

Right . . . and there were homes after homes destroyed to make way for Jews in the 1st place. Then SOVEREIGNTY was imposed upon the rest.

A state that is NOT secular - but homeland for Jews.

- - -

"The settlements were never illegal under the UN but legal per Resolution 242 per Eugene Rostow who wrote it. You repeat the Big LIE TECHNIQUE. Keep repeating the Big Lie until people believe it's true. The settlements are not illegal. After 1967 Israel took back settlements lost in the West Bank in 1948 too."

huh? It is simple . . . prove it? If it is such a lie.

- - -

"The other Big Lie is that Jews from the US are the ones who comes and build settlements in the West Bank. The majority of Israelis in the West Bank are from Israel. "

Hang on . . . "majority"! Even YOU admit that Jews from USA go and build settlements there!

Stats? To prove how big or small a majority/minority?

- - -

"Your blind hatred for Jews in the region leads you believe and repeat all manner of propaganda and lies, as did Dr. Pipes opposition in this biased broadcast by the anti-Israel RT."

But I don't hate the Jews . . . where did you get that? See - this would suggest "blind hate" is from you . . . for throwing such accusations about.

I advocate the 2 state solution . . .and that is it. In fact - I think those settlements should stay there - and become part of Palestine.

- - -

"By the way, Ken O'Keefe is not that jerk's real name. He's a ripoff artist who embezzles money destined for Palestinians."


- - -

"He could only appeal to someone like you who ignores history and facts then pretends to lecture the unknowing,"

Yet you are surprisingly THIN on facts yourself . . . check if you don't believe me . . . then find the evidence 4 ur claims . . .

Else it is YOU making up nonsense.
