CHAZAK! Steven Plaut exposes the "rank hypocrisy" of Israel-bashers

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in enlightened government and progress -- but overlook Arab fascism and are silent when Algeria or Sudan massacres its civilians.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in peace -- but support all forms of military aggression against Israel and think such aggression must be rewarded.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in democracy -- but feel that Israel is the only country in the Middle East that must be dismembered and destroyed. The Israel-bashers claim they believe in basic freedoms -- but back the likes of Arafat, Mubarak, the Saudis and the Assads.

The Israel-bashers claim they oppose violence -- but "understand" Palestinian terrorism.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in human rights -- but not in Arab countries.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in freedom -- but are not disturbed that slavery still exists in Sudan, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere among Arabs.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in freedom to practice religion freely in the Middle East -- but of course only for Muslims.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in progress and enlightenment -- but endorse concessions to those preaching jihad, medieval blood libels, and Holocaust denial.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in progress, but Arab societies should never be expected to progress beyond 13th century feudalism.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe in honest government -- but have nothing to say about Arab kleptocracies.

The Israel-bashers claim they believe that human rights of Arabs must be protected -- but not in Arab countries.

The Israel-bashers claim they oppose the use of torture -- except when practiced by the Palestinian Authority or other progressive Arabs.

In fact, the only "human right" the Israel-bashers really think Palestinians need is the right to attack Jews and destroy Israel.
