My husband sent me this article. It is an older article about how the media twists what happens in the Middle East. In light of the current and biased coverage of Israel versus Hezbollah, and the insane "discussion" had here (sorry you can't post. I had to close it), I thought the article might serve as a reminder to all of what we are dealing with.
Being anti-Israel or anti-Zionist is merely another form of anti-Semitism. Doubt me? Then I would suggest you read this bizarre entry at Daily Kos. A "historical" perspective is put forth. Many key facts, such as the Arab refusal to accept partition and the immediate declaration of war on Israel the day it was created, are omitted. Zionism is equated with colonialism, and is apparently "without moral justification." The authors "history lesson" is remarkable for one thing in particular: he entirely ignores history.
Israel is blamed all too often for the problems in the Middle East. They are not the cause of the problems in the Arab world.
