    Is the hysteria and ignorance. Huntington actually identifies eight civilizations in the world that may clash in the future. And six others, including Israel. H sees Sinic civilization as more of a threat to the West. B "oversimplifies the world into two sides." At least B's talking about H, if he's not yet actually read him. B uses an image about the "rabbis who have penetrated the fabric of Israeli statehood like cancerous cells." A metaphor Hitler used for the Jews. Where is B getting his ideas? Who's he hanging with? Some posters here voiced support B, but they're not actual friends. Heck, they don't even have names. They're just a Tokyo-Rose set, probably much like those B hangs with in France. They probably believe if Israel went away, heaven forfend, all would be cured for them, including the constant throb in their heads from the cognitive dissonance of believing that lies and truth are the same, and that relativism makes sense to any but an interrupted logic.
