— Ace Leftists and Islamofascist apologists always suggest that Israel should simply absorb a certain number of civilian murders per day without reprisal, in the interest of peace. Sort of the cost of doing business -- and you know how Jews love their business.
I'm curious-- why is that no leftist nor Islamofascist apologist suggests the reverse? Why should it not be that Lebanon, or Gaza, or whomever should peacefully absorb a certain number of deaths per day in the interests of peace?
They always say that Israel retaliating "perpetuates the cycle of violence."
Well, Muslim retaliations seem to "perpetuate the cycle of violence," too -- and yet I never seem to hear calls for Muslims to just accept their casualties and turn the other cheek, as is constantly called for with regard to Jewish deaths.
Apparently only some deaths really matter. I guess when you get past six million-- who's really counting anymore? Couple hundred here or there hardly seems to matter, right?
Allah says we're almost in "Loose Change" territory with this, but no, we're not. There could be an innocent explanation, but terrorist organizations -- and Arab/Muslim thugs generally -- have a proven track record of over the top propaganda, with MSM connivance, of course.
I'd be willing to bet that upward of half of the local stringer reporters and photographers on MSM payrolls are getting more money from Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iraqi "insurgents," Al Qaeda, etc.
It's just a fact that, apart from embassy staffs, reporter corps tend to be the biggest haven of spies and paid operatives in the world.
LA Times' Anti-Israel Bias: Lots of headlines of Lebanese deaths on the front page; not so much about Israeli deaths, nor the hundred-plus rockets raining upon Israeli cities per day.
AIPAC-- can't you guys pay the LA Times like you pay me? If you can throw a couple hundred thousand shekles at me every year for writing this dreck, it seems just messugeneh to not buy off the LA Times, too.
Did you like, take a blow to the head during your time off? 'Cause that is just crazy talk, dude.

Because they post under silly names, like "Retardo Montalban" and "Amanda Marcotte".

You mind backing that up with a link to any mainstream left leaning blog?

Yes, here's your link:
Moron, what the fuck do you think they're saying when they'e constantly demanding that Israel stop fighting or that the US "pressure" Israel to stop retaliating?
They're saying to Israel the same thing they said to America after 9/11:
Take a hit for the team. Absorb your casualties without responding. Don't stir up the Islamfascists. Accept you're going to have a certain number of terrorist-inflicted civilian murders per year.
How the fuck else could this contant criticism of Israel (and America, for that matter) be construed?

Wasn't that John F'n Kerry's campaign platform?

Israel is "creating a cycle of violence" that spawns generations of future islamofacists. Turning Iran, Syria and Lebanon to glass would surely prevent this unfortunate cycle.
What the majority of the planet fears is that Israel has BALLS. Big fuckin' I'm not going to take your bullshit anymore brass cajones. It's a shame a country the size of East L.A. has to do the rest of the pussy world's dirty work.
Gillerman for POTUS!

Here is your link, snapperhead. It took me all of 1 second to find it.
And please write me a 2500 word essay on why MSNBC is NOT a major left leaning blog. I am really stumped on that one.

Also interesting is the disproportionate number of Palestinian deaths.
So, in closing Ace, I'd say I agree with your proposal, as long as it was one for one. I think it's the disparity that is causing all the problems.

From their website:
The efforts of a growing number of individuals with close ties to Israel (known as neoconservatives) who have attained key positions at high levels of the U.S. administration, State Department, and Pentagon.
Some fine crazy there.
And their "history" of the region?

Living under such hardship and humiliation, in the year 2000 the
Palestinian population began an uprising against Israeli rule called
the “Intifada.” This term – rarely translated in the American media –
is simply the Arabic word for uprising or rebellion – literally, it
means “shaking off.” The American Revolutionary War, for example, would
be called the American intifada against Britain.
Oh, those brave freedom fighters...

Larry, thanks for pointing us in the direction of this site. It's comedy gold.

And Larry? Please be sure to continue to ignore the fact that the civilians (including children!!!) that are killed by the Palestinians and Lebanese are the actual targets of those two "honorable" organizations and not unfortunate and unintended casualties of this war. And also ignore the fact that Hamas and Hezballah actually use these very same civilians as shields to protect themselves from retaliation for their attacks, as well as to sway weak-minded individuals like you to their cause.
Your revolting and mindless equating of the deaths caused by Hamas and Hezbullah to those caused by Israel make it abundantly clear just how intellectually honest (and astoundingly repulsive) you are.

A few of the best online sources include Al Jazeera; Reports by Robert Fisk and Phil Reeves in the London Independent; The UK Guardian; The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs; The Palestinian Red Crescent Society; and B’Tselem.

All in the interests of "peace" of course.
