ISRAEL'S BARAK WARNS NUCLEAR TALKS WON'T STOP AN ATTACK ON IRAN - ISRAEL'S DEPUTY PM CAUGHT IN A MOMENT OF TRUTH: IRAN NEVER THREATENED ISRAEL - HOW TO MAKE A WORD MEANINGLESS : MODERN MISUSE OF ANTI-SEMITISM
"Israel never ruled out attacking Iran while talks were taking place: defence minister"
This is news?
Israel never rules out attacking anyone it doesn't like at any time.
It is simply the world's great pint-sized bully.
Please see this brief and informative item clarifying, from a high Israeli source, the nonsense we see promoted about Iran's supposed threat to Israel:
Of course, those who follow world affairs will know there was never any substance to the big lie that Netanyahu repeats daily, but it's nice to see that supported, if only by accident, by an Israeli source.
"Israel is like North Korea. A little, aggressive country where even girls have to serve as soldiers. They both have nuclear weapons, both are governed by extremists. The only difference is that there's no North Korean lobby in Washington DC.'
That is a perfect comparison, although our governments constantly preach the opposite.
"It seems there are a lot of Israeli apologists who spew 'ANTI SEMITE' every time somebody has the gall not to be sucked in by every Israeli press release."
'Anti-Semite' coming from Israel or an intense Israeli apologist has today become almost a badge of honor.
Criticize the world's most aggressive and downright dishonest government, and you are, ipso facto, an anti-Semite.
Criticize a government which will not seek honest peace and daily steals what it wants from others and kills those it doesn't like, and you are the criminal.
It is pure cloudcuckooland.
Such abuse of language can only change the meaning of what used to be a valid meaningful word.
It is much like hearing an angry, poorly behaved child in a store screaming at its parent for not buying what it wants.
If Israel is to be a state like any other state, then it is subject to the same criticisms as any other state.
If it is not a state like any other state, then what is it?
Were all of the world's 200 or so countries to adopt a pattern of behavior resembling Israel’s, the world would resemble a massive war between ant colonies, just a ball of unthinking, biting, fighting bodies.
