Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 25 comments
J: "I see no difference between the war of aggression by Saddam in 1990 and the Israeli war of aggression in 1967." There is one difference, and it is called "the eye of the beholder". Morris looks at the Iraq of 1991, and he sees a nation ruled by a monster. Ergo, Iraq's attack and subjugation of Kuwait was Evil Incarnate. Morris looks at Israel in 1967, and he sees a nation of heros led by an wise and enlighened government. Ergo, Israel's attack and subjugation of the Sinai, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip and West Bank was an Act of Heroism under the direction of a Wise Leadership. But if you strip away the "Israel-is-always-the-victim" jingoism the ACTIONS of both were very similar i.e. a strong nation launched a surprise attack upon a weaker opponent, and then used its victory to pursue long-standing colonial expansionist ambitions. Morris will NEVER see that, but that is because it does not fit his world-view, and so it must be rejected.
