POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
He's a known liar.
He regularly behaves like a madman.
He regularly rants about attacking an innocent nation.
His own country long ago did what he is misrepresenting Iran as doing, and still doesn't admit it.
He himself has ordered numerous murders and assassinations.
He regularly validates the outright theft of the homes and farms of others.
In any court, on any charge, in any land, this man's testimony would be valued at zero.
A word on Netanyahu's kindergarten bomb graphic.
You would think that a man representing a country which actually has an illicit nuclear arsenal could do a better job of representing a bomb than this road-runner-and-coyote display.
The man really has no shame.
"All you need to know about the likelihood of a peaceful resolution between Palestine and Israel can be found by reading the Hamas charter."
The Charter is words, and old words.
People who are desperate and lacking in means often say things reflecting their state.
Do you think that in the Old South slaves talked affectionately about their masters?
What about Israel's actual deeds?
"It is obvious President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a crazyman.”
No it is not obvious. Not in the least.
He's not the one ranting and foaming at the mouth and insulting American statesmen and interfering in an American Presidential election and demanding war whose consequences no one knows.
Ahmadinejad is an exceptionally intelligent man, having a PhD in Engineering and being a fairly successful man in a country bigger than France.
Out press is so full of re-written press releases from the American State Department and Israeli interests that he is pretty consistently represented as unbalanced.
There is not one shred of evidence for saying that.
Even his oft-repeated statement about Israel's future, repeated over and over by the kind of pro-Israeli hacks always attracted to a story like this, misrepresents what he said in his native tongue.
What he actually said was pretty much the same thing a secret CIA study said, Israel is not likely to last terribly much longer, and its end in its present form will not be from war.
He has never threatened Israel, and he does not hate Jewish people.
He does hate Israel's abuse of its power and its abuse of 4.5 million people, and he resents - along with countless millions of others - America's constant interference in the region and its validating Israel's repeated criminal acts.
Think: Colin Powell, Colin Powell, Colin Powell.
And remember that after the Bush administration was finally over, Powell much regretted what he had to do at the UN.
