you don't have to be "right wing" to make the connection that her world view was skewed. the post i quoted at the end encapsulates it perfectly.
this does not a skewed worldview make. this a view that is significantly different from yours or theirs makes.
you are wrong. or maybe you are just trying to parse hairs.
1. she is defending a society (palestine) which rejects outright the morals that US or israel or western society in general has: innocent lives should be spared in a war.
2. she is actively doing what
she can to undermine the only practical way that this moral shift, much needed, is going to happen: by cleaning house.
3. she ascribes to the naive leftist view that all differences in morality are equally valid. it's the moral equivalence that the third reich or stalin or hussein employ(ed). the apologists maintain that there is no right and wrong, we just all have "a different outlook."
are you really going to try to argue as a general rule that "Jews are the descendants of apes and pigs" and little kids should be brought up and trained to kill them from day one by targetting innocents in suicide bombings is good? or changing this after 60 years of constant warfare initiated against israel by the arab world is bad?
if so, then i'll stand by "skewed" being a fair term and damn kind term.
however, she is putting her life on the line for a house-- not a person, but a house. a house where a militant islamist hides guns and ammo to arm suicide bombers in a culture which shows no regard or deterrence for innocent life. in fact, they target it specifically. they target it specifically because the ascribe to the very worst views in the Third Reich. she is aiding this directly.
prove this to me.
kind of proof do you want? pick up the daily news.
the army is bulldozing houses of those who are affiliated with the militant islamist movement and smuggling weapons through tunnels. palestine was caught a few weeks ago receiving a shipment of 50 TONS
of weapons. http://www.israel-mfa.gov.il/mfa/go.asp?MFAH0l180
that's a fuckload of ammo. call me wacky, but stopping this trade by the SUICIDE BOMBERS who-- fyi get paid cash money by hussein-- is probably a good idea both for israel and america.
i linked her hometown paper which shows she had done this before on 2/14 & knew exactly what
she was doing. Ben's link showed she chose to stay-- even after the army fired a smoke grenade to try to clear out the useful idiots. The houses were empty, and she virtually climbed onto the bulldozer. http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/pages ... ntrassID=0
the mainstream press has pointed out that the house was empty. if it wasn't, do you really think the press would not paint her as a martyr?
how is teaching CHILDREN to burn the american flag promoting peace?
she's not teaching them to burn people or fire guns is she? i personally see that as teaching them that america isn't God and isn't perfect and isn't necessarily the way to go.
sweet jesus. are you going to tell me that ribbentrop's role in the Thrid Reich didn't matter?
though, in fairness, that photo i link may not have actually been her, but i posted that above.
how was she capitalizing on the fact that she's white? and again, your definition of stabilization may not be the same as hers. perhaps the side you believe to be in the right is not the same. you're arguing one sided here.
umm...you're indication of palestian idea of "stability" would be what
? rejecting the deal of the century under Barak or continuing to wage an infitada on the Jews until Sharon has stepped in a raised the buildings of those carrying it out.
dude. come on. it's not being one-sided. it is looking at the facts.
Corrie was banking that a white american voice will deter the IDF because the israelis actually do not kill innocents at random or target them. she also assumed palestinians didn't matter at all despite the fact that the IDF hasn't engaged in ethnic cleansing or wiped them out in toto. those suicide bombers & ones who open fire on the IDF are civilians. the islamists who crashed the planes into the WTC and pentagon were civilians.
I will have to look up john walker lindh, but jesus, if she was from a rich and powerful family, you'd have heard about it already.
where do you live that you don't know who john walker lindh is?
Naive and stupid for standing up for something she believes in? I think you're calling her that because she was standing up for the side you think is wrong.
damn straight. make a case for their being right.
however, you can believe in naive and stupid things and stand up for them. look at jane fonda in vietnam, or those who apologize for castro or bought into Hitler's propaganda. go read the black book of communism. then tell me if believing in it isn't naive and stupid.
Traitor? How? Where does it say that if you disagree with US policy and do something non violent against it, you are a traitor? find that, and then I'll think about her being a traitor. Calling her a traitor is a really cheap cop out.
the world is not utopia. i have a hard time seeing a game of chicken with a bulldozer in a combat zone as being peaceful.
she was banking on the superior morals of a society she was protesting against-- a society who is as anti-american as they come. she was a traitor.
