Certainly Quentin you can be "leftist" and anti-semetic at the same time, its just a matter of exclusion. As well somehow you have managed to wash your hands completely of your past because you refuse to acknowledge it. Europe has hardly done justice to its former colonies...What you viewed in the context of "land" was certainly more complex when considering tribal, clan, and religous consideration. You poisoned your colonies with Western decadence and never showed them how to acheive it, or gave them the means. Much of what the United States is fighting now stems from European legacy......We pay the price, you complain about it.

Our support for Israel has nothing to do with Zionism. It was a cold war situation, where Israel was our only ally in that important region. Sure enough Jews in America have a certain measure of influence, but when you transpose the Jewish mentality compared to that of the Muslims its a no brainer.

When Arafat won the nobel prize he surely must have been thinking how dumb are Europeans. He was a terrorist and everybody knew that. Yet he won the Nobel peace prize? My neighbor is more deserving of such a reward and his dog takes a dump in my yard nearly everyday. Not to mention when you talk about Zionism vs. colonization its purely semantics. You're a hypocrite and too pompous to even realize it.

Submitting....
