Another goy confuses Jewish with 'liberal'

Andrew Sullivan is showing off his ignorance again.
The slow cultural shifts in Israel - toward ever more arrogance, more fundamentalism, more Russian immigrant racism, contempt for the Muslim world, military adventurism, and the daily grinding of the Palestinians on the West Bank and pulverization and inhumane blockade of the people of Gaza ... well maybe some others can explain it.

All I can say is: it saddens me, as a longtime lover of the Jewish state. It does not represent the historic mainstream of liberal Jewish society, it is a betrayal of many Jewish virtues that goyim like me deeply admire, and it seems designed for war as some kind of eternal and uplifting state of mind.
Sorry Andrew, but "Jewish" and "liberal" do not mean the same thing. Judaism does not require that we roll over and play dead for the Arabs. And if the only way to defend ourselves is war, then war it will be.

By the way Andrew, don't you think it's a little bit racist to imply that all Russian immigrants to Israel are racists? Just wondering. Oh, and that picture at the top? It's a Gaza fruit market and it was taken quite recently. Looks like they're being 'pulverized' and 'inhumanely blockaded,' doesn't it? I wonder how many other Arab countries have it as good as Gaza does.

The Left in Israel has all but disappeared as a political force. Israelis are more concerned with survival than they are with trying to reach an arrangement with the Palestinians that will never happen. Andrew Sullivan doesn't get the "peace process" is dead.

The more Sullivan feels "safe." The more he reverts to his old, catty, pre-911 self!
