Angry journalists, who initially boycotted the session, describe subcommittee's claims to be part of a 'witch hunt,' and slam Israel's 'authoritarian' efforts to clamp down on the media.14:27 09.02.16 | 2 comments
Little more than 100 years ago there was liberal discussion of a new concept Judeo-Christian, which was to emphasize that Christianity grew from Judaism and thus anti-Semitism was unacceptable. Shortly before and during WW II the term took on a political meaning as an anti-Nazi political slogan. Now we have a curious alignment of Jewish and Christian ultra-right wing extremist and fundamentalist elements - to say nothing of their Islamic counterparts - who are determined to take total control of western civilization. They are doomed of course and in due course they will vanish. But before then they - and their Islamic alter-egos - will cause much more suffering. "Onward Judeo-Christian Soldiers Marching Forth For War. . . " But they don't really have a cross of Jesus to march behind. Not the Shield of David. Rather some sort of twisted cross. Who is controlling Western Civilization - those who hate it such as the religious right - or the rest of us?
