Moderate Muslim, stop lying!

Reader comment on item: Where the Nazi "Big Lie" Endures
in response to reader comment: The big picture problem

Moderate Muslim, in the context of our subject, namely "The Nazi "Big Lie"" you have just provided a live example of this Big Lie at work: By dumping upon us a crude mixture of half-truths and outright lies, you are promoting the anti-Semitic blood libels of the Arab-Nazi propaganda and at the same time trying to show us how "justified" and "understandable" this Arab-Nazi anti-Semitism, and the atrocities committed by their terrorist gangs are. And you are doing all this while trying to disguise yourself as an evenhanded observer, motivated only by good intentions. How typical!

You admit that "The Arabs do horrible things to the Israelis" but immediately you throw in also that "the Israelis reciprocate with a disproportional response." In fact the only correct part of all you said in your post was that "The Arabs do horrible things to the Israelis"; all the rest is plain humbug.

The Israelis do not "reciprocate" the inhuman atrocities of the Arab terrorists who are deliberately targeting noncombatant civilian population – the Israelis are simply trying to stop these murderous terrorist gangs, and targeting only them. Naturally, in this endeavor there are also unavoidable civilian casualties, especially given the fact that these criminals are always hiding among civilians. "Moderate" Muslim; let me suggest a corrected version of your original bottom line:

What it boils down to is that people of all religions should condemn the atrocities committed by the Arab-Nazi terrorists and should support the only Jewish state on the face of this earth, The State of Israel, in its legitimate struggle against them.

Another important point to remember: The Palestinians never made a sincere move towards peace with the Jewish state. Whenever, and wherever the Arabs sought peace with Israel, they found it.

And even more important: STOP LYING!
