'On Holocaust Remembrance Day, we ought to discuss our ability to uproot the seeds of intolerance, violence, self-destruction and moral deterioration,' says Maj. Gen. Yair Golan.23:41 04.05.16 | 0 comments
Dear Flashman, I agree, quote: ?Sincerity and assassination are unhappy bedfellows at the best of times?. But is this not also a criticism of Israel? To avoid the claim of hypocrisy, it would have to be. Israel?s assassination of British and European leaders, never mind Arabs, is well-documented. Perhaps you would argue that Israel is a special case; a nation that has a God-given dispensation to behave differently. If so, how would you reconcile Zionist approval of assassination with the fundamental principle of modern secular democracy to safeguard the rights of civilians, meaning primarily the right to life? That surely is in conflict also with the 10 commandments. Or are these commandments void when dealing with gentiles? I would like to know the answers to these questions so I can know on what basis I can expect to be treated; like an equal, or a despised inferior.
