We’re Winning (One man’s view)

4,200 miles on a motorcycle through ten states including Colorado and Wyoming netted us the following observation: There were only two rather feeble responses to the anti-Israel bumper stickers and garments worn, when in the past there were many. In addition, the force and anger of the offended viewers previously contained much more heat (always little light) than the two this year. True, many racist heads were turned away from the sentiments on the t-shirt, but only two had the courage of their convictions to mount anything close to an offensive. We conclude it’s just getting harder and harder to claim any defense for the vicious Jewish state and the war crimes it commits.

Josh Ruebner: stop picking on “Israel”

The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation – headed by Josh Ruebner – defines itself as “A national coalition of more than 400 groups, the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation works to end U.S. support for Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. We support a U.S. policy that upholds freedom, justice and equality.”

Past experience and encounters suggest to us that Josh also supports Israel’s claimed “right” to exist as a Jewish state and there lies the rub: Josh, since you support Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state (and please do correct us if we’re wrong) how can you possibly criticize the tactics with which your Jewish state MUST act to maintain its racist policies inherent in its founding? Jews, with their seemingly never-ending arrogance, have planted themselves in the midst of a people who rightly reject their forced presence (force is the only way to maintain this Apartheid situation) and you, Josh, are a Jew.

It’s a tongue-in-cheek “tough row” to hoe for the Jewish state, killing and maiming civilians, with some Jews even calling for a complete genocide of the Palestinian people*. So how can you sit there and demand that Israel cease the violence that is REQUIRED of them to maintain Jewish supremacy?

We certainly hope that the US Campaign sheds its sheep’s clothing and comes out of its closet to announce its tacit alliance with the leaders of the Jewish state. After all, Josh, they’re only doing what they have to do.

And Rebecca Vilkomerson, you’re next …

* Jewish blogger Yochanan pens “When Genocide is Permissible” which is published by the Times of Israel, then taken down. Kinda like the trial attorney advising the jury to “disregard” statements made in their presence. Click here for article from Huffington Post.

    Your trips are like a thermometer to take the temperature of the patient, in this case the people of the United States. It’s a great way to put a vacation to use! : )
