How to make a liberal case for Israel

Here's Wall Street Journal columnist and former JPost editor Bret Stephens describing how to make a liberal case for Israel (Hat Tip: Daled Amos).

Let's go to the videotape.

The biggest problem here is how to get the liberals to sit long enough to listen to the argument.

Forward this to a liberal friend and see what they say.

as a liberal, who has tried to use these arguments with the radical lefties that hang out on blogs...i already know what they say

they say it doesnt matter...that we cant impose our values on other nations

that the only thing that matters is that israel is stealing the land of the arabs

the radical left is insane...one cannot reason with insane people

seriously...look at chomsky...look at your own neve gordon

you cannot reason with these people

I have no hope of winning over the radical Left.

I have hope of winning over the typical American Jew who automatically votes democratic without thinking about it.

One has to attack, and demolish the argument being made about 'stealing land'. It is obviously false. But the 'palis' have used bleeding heart liberal iconography ... a 'key' to a non-existent house. A 'deed' to a non-existent plot of land.

Israel needs some simple sound-bite level demolition of these points. It shouldn't be hard to do, given the 'palis' points' inherent falsehood.

For each false 'palis' point, a simple hard to contradict affirmative point should be made indicating the contrary reality, and then the listener should be exposed to the correct information. One sound bite at a time.

This is not a war Israel wants to lose.

The 'palis' have decided that fighting jews with armament doesn't work so well. So they are fighting jews in the court of public opinion and with propaganda. And because Israel has done such a piss-poor job of responding to this, the 'palis' are winning this fight.

Remember, the goal of wars are to compel your opponent to give up their political aims by means of a force of arms, and admit defeat. Exactly what do you (Israel) think they (the 'palis') are doing? Hello ... anyone awake there in the government? At all?

They are seeking to compel Israel to disolve itself or concede massive land and strategic tracts. They are doing this through force of propaganda. They are winning.

You don't want them to win.

Start doing something about it, in earnest.

[that last message was to anyone in the Israeli government who might read this blog ... and I am sure Carl has quite a few]
