Mysterious and Unique Logic?

Reader comment on item: My Testimony before the House Subcommittee on Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations

Mysterious and Unique Logic?

Despite the fact that Democratic Subcommittee Chairman Ackerman said it "would be LUNACY" to repeatedly renegotiate Israel's existence and the Republican ranking minority member, Mr. Pence said, "The fact that this is still a subject of negotiation is OUTRAGEOUS," some still insist those who reject the human right of national self-determination for Jews should be invited to congress.

They also claim that those who deny the right of Jews to have a state are not anti-Jews. One wonders about the nature of that logic. Does it apply, for example to France or Poland as well? One denies the right of France to exist, but one is not anti-French? One denies the right of Poland to exist, but one is not against the Poles? One denies the right of America to exist, but one is not anti-American? They do sound like absurd propositions.

Yet, when it comes to the Jews, a mysterious and apparently unique logic must be inferred to support the claim those those who deny the right of the single Jewish state to exist is not against the Jews.
