You hear the one about all terrorists being Muslims? Apparently so. Well, your boy Dan Gillerman, Israeli Ambassador to the UN, went on O'Reilley the other day arguing that Israel was doing the world's job for it, that Iran intends to nuke us all, and that "While it is politically incorrect to say that all Muslims are terrorists, unfortunately, it’s true that nearly all terrorists are Muslim." WOW!
Now that is a statement. I find it quite amazing that, in suggesting the Israeli government might be vicious, warmongering gaggle of swine, I get emails calling me an anti-semite, and this dude goes on telly making fucking BIZARRE statements about a whole people, and nobody says shit.
What Israel have been doing around their borders for God knows how long is TERRORISM. What we have been doing in Iraq is TERRORISM. What we have been doing at home is TERRORISM. Yo, let us look it up in the dictionary...
Main Entry: ter·ror·ism Pronunciation: 'ter-&r-"i-z&m Function: noun 1 : the unlawful use or threat of violence esp. against the state or the public as a politically motivated means of attack or coercion
Get me? ATTACK OR COERCION.
So it goes.
Oh, back-up on that anti-semite thing. Shall we look up semite in the dictionary?
A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians.
Man, our speak is bent so double it can't but limbo. AWOOGA! LET US RUMBLE!
I watched a documentary many years ago, by accident, on BBC4 (one of those digi-channel preview on terrestrial telly things they used to do). It was that one about the failed coup against Hugo Chavez a decade or so ago. A couple of Irish filmmakers happened to be there when it all kicked off, and got the full inside story. It is still amazing, I watched it last night on Google. You should do the same.
