The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now. Israel fights Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south, but its most formidable enemy is history itself.
How is this different from the words of Iranian megalomaniacal President Ahmadinejad back in December:
Why did you come to give a piece of Islamic land and the territory of the Palestinian people to them?
As Wretchard notes:
“Never Again” lasted all of sixty years.
Richard Cohen is a useful
fool tool for Anti-Semites the world over.
I can see the smile cross the face of the evil Ahmadinejad as he reads these words in a prominent American newspaper.
We should all weep for the lack of moral clarity in these times from many in America.
W’s language is sweet compared to Cohen’s morally decadent idiocy.
