'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
All those slavering quasi-fascists have a point -- although they don't quite put it like that. And so do you. Indeed, what Israel is doing now is morally inadmissible. But if that is granted, then how does one justify the process by which Israel was created in the first place? What is going on now always has gone on. To condemn Israel's behavior is to condemn the very creation of Israel. So the logic of your critics is entirely consistent; they support Israel's existence, and they support the behavior that made that existence possible. It is absurd to drive a people out of their house and then object to driving them out of the garage as well. Either both actions are just, or neither one is.
