'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
Pointing to ignorant, backward societies as an excuse to be yourself ignorant and backward is a false premise. It's like saying "They eat people in Saudi Arabia, why shouldn't we be allowed to eat people in Israel." If justice, equality, democracy and rule-of-law cannot work in a highly developed and civilized state like Israel, then it cannot work anywhere, and it proves that the world is doomed to live as insular tribalist warring cantons. Insular, tribalist "Zionists" (Likudniks, etc) are hoping the multicultural experiment fails, and they can finally kick out everybody who doesn't look like them or worship like them and they can finally have their "peace." There is a difference between having "peace" thru subjugating all your neighbors at the point of a gun, or creating a harmonious environment whereby nobody NEEDS a gun. The first is easy, the second is hard. The first is advocated in the Bible and Koran, the second isn't.
